Ticket Collection (TOD)

TOD or ticket on departure means you collect your tickets at the station. You can collect your tickets any time from the moment you book from any TOD station, so if your card will expire before the travel date you must collect them before.

*Please click on your preferred station to check station opening hours, especially if you plan to collect early in the morning.

How to Collect TOD Tickets

To collect your tickets all you need is:

1. Your 8 digit ticket collection reference number
2. The exact credit or debit card you booked with.

You may collect your tickets from either a self service ticket machine and/or at the ticket office. We recommend that you collect your tickets at least 20 minutes before your departure time. You will find your collection reference in the confirmation that appears on screen after the booking is complete and in your confirmation email.
