Flexi Season ticket
Our Carnet train tickets will be replaced with the new Flexi Season ticket. You can continue to buy Carnet train tickets until 20 June 2021 and use them for travel until they expire. Please plan ahead to make sure you have enough tickets to travel between 21 and 28 June.
Why have you withdrawn the Carnet product?
Flexi Season is a new national product with a standard offering for all customers. As a result of this, Carnet will be withdrawn from sale when Flexi Season becomes available. If you still have valid Carnet tickets on your smartcard, you can continue to use them until they expire.
If you don’t make the same journey enough to get a Season ticket but need flexibility of when to travel, then our Carnet ticket could be for you.
What is a Carnet ticket?
Just like a Season ticket, you'll get unlimited travel between two South Western Railway stations for the day.
Available exclusively on our smartcard, you'll get 10 tickets that can be used over two months. And even better, you'll get a 5% discount than if you'd bought a Standard Anytime Day Return ticket, but with unlimited travel.
How do I get a Carnet ticket?
You must have a Touch Smartcard registered online and then all you need to do is:
Your tickets can be loaded onto your smartcard two hours after you've booked them, then activated on your nominated station's smartcard reader.
You will have two months from the date of purchase to use up all 10 tickets.
How do I use a Carnet ticket?
On the day of travel, just place your touch smartcard on the smartcard reader. This will activate one of your day tickets and allow you to travel.
Don’t forget to touch in and out during your journey and avoid card clash.
