5.2 Day Rangers

A day ranger ticket allows the holder to make an unlimited number of journeys within a defined area for one day (picture example). The National Rail Enquiries website has a list of all ranger and rover products.

Some day ranger products have alternative names, such as West Yorkshire DayRover (not to be confused with rover products), Island Liner (Day Rover), East Yorkshire Round Robin, (Merseytravel) Saveaway, Ride Cornwall, etc.

5.2.1 Time Restrictions

Most day ranger products have time restrictions on weekdays. Time restrictions can vary. Bear in mind that some rail staff could be unaware of the restrictions of certain products, therefore it is advisable to check the details of individual products before you travel, and bring a copy of the information with you if possible. (The information on time restriction can be obtained by searching for the relevant day ranger here and clicking the Validity tab once you have followed the link to the individual page of your specific product.)

5.2.2 Ticket Issuing

A day ranger ticket should be issued as one coupon. However it has been reported that in some cases day rangers are issued on two coupons. The additional coupon containing a pair of date boxes is not needed in theory nevertheless please do not discard the date box coupon as some staff might insist on seeing it.
