Ticket Types Explained:

Tickets are split into two separate types, Advance and On - the -Day.

Advance tickets can be purchased ahead of time, and are almost always cheaper. However, they are bound to a specific train, which cannot be altered without a £10 administration fee, and are non-refundable.

There are several types of ticket purchasable on the day of travel; Anytime, Off Peak and Super off Peak. Both types are available as a "Day" ticket, or an open ticket, valid for a month.

Off peak tickets are available for journeys after 9.30am, and if on an Arriva Trains Wales route, not between 4pm and 6.30pm.
