Passengers will be able to travel to and from any two South West Trains stations across the majority of its network. The Warminster to Bristol Temple Meads line and the Exeter to Feniton line are excluded, but the Island Line is included provided passengers hold tickets to Portsmouth Harbour. The rest of the network covers an impressive amount of territory south and west of London's Waterloo Station - to the coast at Portsmouth and Weymouth in Dorset, into Wiltshire, Hampshire and Berkshire, making the tickets a real bargain.
Arthur Pretorius, Deputy Customer Service Director for the South West Trains – Network Rail Alliance, said: “This is our best offer to date for everybody within our area to go and explore what our region has to offer, or visit friends and family for a bargain price. We hope it will encourage more people to try the train and enjoy a great day out.”
The Winter Smiles tickets can be purchased on the day of travel from any staffed South West Trains station, or from ticket vending machines, from Monday 13th January online and from Friday 17th January for Ticket Vending Machines or ticket offices.
