How to use the QUICKticket Self-Service Ticket Vending Machines

Buying your train journey tickets have never been easier or quicker thanks to new QUICKticket machines at southern stations.

QUICKticket machines offer a wide variety of ticket types to any destination on the national rail network.

Simply read and follow messages on the screens to guide you through your purchase options, and don’t worry, if you are unsure of what to do ask our staff for assistance or contact southern customer services.

You can use cash, credit or debit cards to buy daily or weekly tickets using the touch screen graphics. Next day tickets may be purchased after 16:00 hours. You will also be able to renew monthly season tickets via the QUICKticket machines by registering on this website.

Tickets that have been purchased online can also be collected from the QUICKticket machine. Select the ‘Collect’ touch screen graphic and insert your credit/debit card then follow the on-screen instructions.
