Penalty fares

Penalty fares

If you don’t have a valid ticket or permit to travel, you’ll have to pay a penalty fare.

You’ll also pay a penalty fare if you:

  • Travel individually on a Group Offer ticket
  • Don’t have a valid railcard for a discounted ticket
  • Sit in First Class with a standard ticket
  • Travel on a child ticket, but you’re 16 or older

You can’t use Oyster or Contactless payment cards on Stansted Express services to/from Stansted Airport.
