Anytime train tickets

Go any time you like.

Anytime tickets are the most flexible tickets you can get. They allow you to travel on any train at any time for your chosen journey.

  • Anytime tickets are available as single and returns
  • With a return you can come back within one calendar month, and to help you get home on a night out, a return is valid until 04:30 the following morning
  • Singles are great for matching with Advance tickets if you need a bit more flexibility for when you leave or return
  • Some routes have first class Anytime tickets
  • Anytime tickets that show ‘any permitted’ enable you to travel on any train operator at any time
  • Anytime tickets that show ‘West Midlands Trains only’ are much cheaper than the alternative ‘any permitted’ and allow you to travel on any West Midlands Railway or London Northwestern Railway train
