Booking in advance just got even easier for journeys over 50 miles.

Buying Advance tickets up to 12 weeks before your journey can save you up to 42% compared to buying on the day of travel, but be quick because the very best deals on Advance tickets are limited. 

January 2020 Changes

Advance Purchase on the Day

You can now buy Advance tickets on the day of travel up until one hour before the train departs its origin station.  This applies to all Transport for Wales journeys over 50 miles, except those wholly within the South Wales Metro area. 

Advance Fares over 50 miles

You can now purchase Advance tickets on all journeys over 50 miles with Transport for Wales. Please note that over 50 miles is defined in rail track mileage and Advance tickets are not available for journeys wholly within the South Wales Metro area.
