South Western Railway touch smartcard

Carnet train ticket

Buy 10 Standard Anytime Day Return tickets with a 5% discount

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.
