Rail fares on Thameslink will rise by an average of nearly 1 per cent from January 2.
But singles and returns from London to Gatwick with Gatwick Express, and Luton Airport with
Thameslink, will stay the same, along with fares under £10 on Great Northern, Southern and
Thameslink that start or end outside the London Travelcard zone.
Season tickets will rise by 1 per cent, in line with the rate of inflation, according to rail officials.
Govia Thameslink Railway’s commercial director David Innis said:“We are determined to give our passengers better value for money and by freezing thousands
of fares and introducing a minimum rate of inflation rise on season tickets, we are doing just that.”
