Touch smartcard


The only ticket you’ll need

Our touch smartcard is the quick and easy way to store your train tickets. 

When you create a GWR.com account you can also see what you’ve bought, re-order tickets, and keep your personal details up to date.

But we think the best thing about our touch smartcard is that it’s reusable.

Touch smartcard is currently available for weekly season tickets between Severn Beach, Bristol Temple Meads and Bath Spa, excluding Oldfield Park and Keynsham.
