Advanced Tickets can be purchased at any rail station with a travel office, online or with mobile App.
When purchasing tickets online IBPTS recommends Virgin Trains for a prompt service and no card or hidden charges!
Avoid using The Trainline and RailEasy to book tickets online or by Mobile App as they charge unnecessary card and processing fees!
“Advance Tickets” can make beneficial savings on long journeys. Journeys must be planned carefully with sufficient time allowed for connections, late running and delays, as train operating companies will not take into consideration delays or service disruption of other train operating companies! We advise when travelling using “Advance Tickets” that a separate ticket is purchased for each journey to make greater savings!
|Penalty Fares Mainline Trains (Ipswich to London & Norwich)|
The Penalty Fares scheme is in force on all mainline services from Ipswich to London and Norwich.
All Penalty Fare Stations are clearly identified by distinct warning signs at each station entrance. At Penalty Fare Stations, if you cannot buy your ticket at the station ticket office you must purchase your ticket from the self-service ticket machine before boarding any train.
Passengers are required to have a valid ticket for their journey before boarding trains at all Penalty Fare Stations.
If passengers cannot present a valid ticket when requested, by train conductors or travelling revenue ticket inspectors they will be liable to pay a Penalty Fare of £20 or twice the appropriate full Single fare to their destination station or the next station at which the train stops.
On train “Ticket Inspectors and Conductors” do not have any law and detainment enforcement powers, they can only request payment and ask passengers to leave the train. Any physical contact with passenger is categorised as an assault upon the passenger!
| Multi-Ticket Travel (How to save up to 64% on walk on Tickets)|
The fare structure of the “National Rail Network” is inadequately configured even within train operating companies’ areas.
To take advantage of this savings can be made on journeys by purchasing more than 1 ticket for the journey being made.
“Peak and Off Peak” travel restrictions apply but providing the train you are travelling stop at the station where tickets start or finish there is no need to change trains.
It is advised when travelling using “Multi-Tickets” to purchase your tickets in advance but they can be purchased on the day of travel. Any “Walk on Ticket” for any journey can be purchased from any station travel office or from the conductor on the train providing they have the competence to perform the transaction
