For the next four weekends, passengers get an additional 10% discount on First Capital Connect’s 25%-plus cheaper ‘Super Off Peak’ fare.

There’s another chance during the half term to take up this fantastic offer.

For the next four weekends, passengers get an additional 10% discount on First Capital Connect’s 25%-plus cheaper ‘Super Off Peak’ fare.

The extra discount is running until 24 November across the entire First Capital Connect network with the exception of journeys that both start and finish within the London Travelcard zone.

This means passengers will now save up to 32.5% on their off-peak ticket when compared to the off-peak day return fare.

On top of that, railcards will give a further one-third off meaning passengers could make significant savings.

First Capital Connect Managing Director David Statham said, “Many families may have chosen to stay at home during last weekend’s stormy weather when we launched the added discount but there’s another chance during the half term to take up this fantastic offer – and we’ll keep it running until 24 November.”

Last month First Capital Connect extended its 25%-plus Super Off-Peak discount to nearly all its fares. This extra 10% for a month is intended to give passengers still greater value for money.

Editor’s notes
Since 2009, 25% Super Off-Peak weekend and bank holiday fares had been available only to London and stations inside the London Travelcard zone north of London and for ‘FCC only’ fares to and from London on the Brighton mainline.

Last month (September), FCC extended the fare to all journeys with the exception of those that both start and finish within the London Travelcard zone. This was to encourage still greater use of the railway in the off-peak.

The latest offer discounts all Super Off-Peak tickets by a further 10%.
