Correct 2012 ticket prices available from 20 December
The government announced on Tuesday, 29 November, that regulated fares (covering almost half of all fares) will rise in January by an average of the retail price index (RPI) for inflation plus one per cent. This is lower than the increase of RPI plus three per cent that the government had originally planned for 2012.
During the autumn, train companies had set millions of fares reflecting the original, higher increase. Train companies have been working hard to re-set fares in line with the government’s decision.
As a result, information on prices for train travel from 2 January will now be available from 20 December, a few weeks later than would normally be the case. Until 20 December, information on fares will be at 2011 prices, except for Advance tickets where the 2012 price is already available. From 20 December, all websites will have the correct 2012 prices. Ticket offices and self service machines will have the new prices at various dates.
If you want to buy a ticket now for travel after 2 January, the following applies until 20 December:
All tickets bought for 2012 will be valid for travel
Walk up tickets (Anytime/Off-Peak/Super Off-Peak) – tickets booked for travel on or after 2 January 2012 will be available at 2011 prices.
Advance tickets - are unaffected and can be bought for travel either before or after 2 January 2012. Season tickets – are normally available seven days in advance and so could not be bought for 2012 before 20 December under normal circumstances. National Rail Enquiries will continue to quote 2011 prices for Season tickets until the correct prices are available from 20 December.
All prices for travel in 2011 are unaffected.
