At the end of the day, we analyse all your entry and exit taps and apply the most appropriate fare for the journeys you made. The fare will be based upon the ticket types available on the day and the time you travelled on our services. We will then charge you the best value walk-up, flexible fares as available on GWR.com made up of Standard Class Anytime, Off-Peak and Super-Off-Peak Day Single, and Day Return Fares.
In addition, a new range of Anytime Day Singles will be exclusively available to customers using pay-as-you-go for travel. These are available on most journeys and are generally priced at half the Anytime Day Return fare.
New 1-day and 1-week fare caps allowing unlimited travel, exclusive to the pay-as-you-go scheme, are included in the areas covered by the Bristol Freedom Travelpass:

||Unlimited travel 1-day fare cap
||Unlimited travel weekly fare cap (Mon-Sun)
If you travel between the same two stations multiple times a week on a Monday – Sunday 7-day basis, you will also benefit from Weekly Season ticket capping, and pay no more than if you’d bought a Weekly Season ticket in advance.
Advance Single tickets are not included in the fares mix used for pay-as-you-go travel. In some instances, one-way journeys between Weston-super-Mare/Bristol and Gloucester/Cheltenham may be cheaper to book in advance for specific trains compared to the flexible fares on the day.
