On the Train

Ticket Tips

You can buy a SINGLE ticket (one way) for any train journey. Prices start from around £1 for short journeys, and range up to £10 for longer off-peak journeys.

If you are coming back the same day, it’s cheaper to buy a CHEAP DAY RETURN ticket. Cheap Day Returns are normally available after 0845 Monday to Friday and at any time during weekends for most journeys in Devon.

If you are travelling together as a family or a group, a GROUPSAVE ticket allows up to four adults to travel for the price of two cheap day returns.

Prices will vary depending on how far you travel and when you travel. Tickets can be purchased from staffed stations, from the conductor on the train when boarding at an unstaffed station, or in advance online.  Please note ticket prices are up to date as of January 2012 but may be subject to change.
