- You’ll need to make your outward journey on the date shown on the outward part of your ticket
- You have to make your return journey within one calendar month of the date shown on your ticket. For example, if you booked to your outbound journey for 7 July, the last day you could use the return ticket would be 6 August. Off-Peak restrictions will also apply to the return journey
- Not all journey restrictions are set by LNER. Train companies have their own off-peak tickets to give you flexibility to travel on any of their trains. Check your ticket to see the route restrictions such as ‘LNER only’, ‘Grand Central only’ etc. And then if it isn't an LNER ticket, please check the website of the train company for the off-peak restrictions for the journey you're making.
