How to buy tickets

How to buy your ticket depends on what type of journey you are taking. For local journeys (under 50 miles as a rough guide) it also depends which station you are starting from. If you are departing from Perranwell, Penryn, Penmere, Falmouth Town or Falmouth Docks, you should buy your ticket on the train. This is because these stations  do not have a ticket office or ticket machine, so you should buy your ticket on the train from the guard at the normal price. For short local journeys it's no cheaper to book early. If you are departing from Truro, buy your ticket at the station. Truro has a ticket office and ticket machine, so you MUST buy your ticket before you board the train. If you are taking a longer journey (like Penryn to London), you should buy your ticket in advance.  Long-distance tickets will often be much cheaper if you buy in advance, either online or at a station ticket office. Buy up to 12 weeks in advance for the best deals.
