How many tickets?

Train ticket types

Get to the airport comfortably or start your London trip in the best possible way – all you need is the quick and easy standard ticket. It’s still the most popular way to board the speedy Gatwick Express.

Should I get a Standard ticket?

The Standard ticket is best if you’re looking for a great value way to the airport or into central London.

  • It’s the cheapest available Gatwick Express ticket so offers you real value for money
  • Arrive feeling good thanks to air-conditioning and comfortable, modern seats*
  • Luggage is easy to store in overhead compartments and in areas for big suitcases

*If the train is very busy, maybe during morning and evening peak times, you may not be able to get a seat.
