National Rail Requests: Off-peak tickets (2023)

The trains you can take and the times you can travel on an off-peak ticket vary significantly depending on the trip, the day/date of travel, and the train company you are traveling with. All off-peak tickets have a 'restriction code' assigned to the respective trip (a two-digit code made up of letters and numbers printed on the ticket). It is this restriction code that distinguishes when an off-peak ticket is valid for that particular trip. You can read the restriction code using the address bar above ( or the ticket and validity search tool below.
