About Greater Anglia

Greater Anglia (formally known as Abellio East Anglia Limited) is a British rail operator owned by Abellio, the international arm of the state-owned Dutch national railroad company Nederlandse Spoorvegen, and the Japanese trading company Mitsui & Co. It operates the East Anglia franchise and provides many regional services from the Central London Terminal on London Liverpool Street to Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, parts of Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire, and throughout eastern England. Abellio began operating the franchise, then known as the Greater Anglia franchise, in February 2012. It initially traded under the same name until December 2013, when it was rebranded as Abellio Greater Anglia. Shortly after taking over operations, the company initiated a series of projects. These included the procurement of new trains and the launch of the ‘Norwich in 90’ program to reduce travel times between several key locations on the network. In May 2015, the Greater Anglia stops were transferred to London Overground, the predecessor to Crossrail (TfL Rail). The franchise was rebid as the East Anglia franchise and awarded to Abellio in August 2016. The company resumed trading as Greater Anglia on October 16, 2016, when the new franchise commenced. In January 2017, Abellio announced that it had agreed to sell a 40% stake in the business to Mitsui, subject to approval by the Ministry of Transport. Since the sale was completed in March 2017, Greater Anglia has incorporated several Japanese planning tools and practices.

    Looking for the cheapest train tickets for your journey? We've got you covered!Check out the suggestions below and discover tips you can use to save on your next train journey.
    Book in advance
    Book in advance
    Most of the railway companies throughout Europe release their tickets approximately three to six months in advance, with many offering lower prices for early bookings. If you know the dates you wish to travel, it may be possible to secure cheaper train tickets from Milan to Rome by booking in advance.
    Split Tickets
    Choose a slower or connecting train
    On certain busier routes, it may be possible to opt for a slower or connecting train. Although it may take slightly longer than high-speed or direct services, you could potentially secure a cheaper fare if you have some extra time to spare. Additionally, you'll have more opportunity to appreciate the scenic views of the countryside!
    Travel Off-Peak
    Be open to flexibility in your travel schedule
    A significant number of train services in Europe are also utilized as commuter services, and as such, many train companies raise ticket prices during "peak hours" (typically from 06:00 to 10:00 and from 15:00 to 19:00 on weekdays). If possible, try to travel outside of peak hours to secure lower-priced tickets.
    Travel Off-Peak
    Use your Railcard
    National Railcards offer a 1/3 off eligible train tickets in the UK and can be a great investment if you travel a few times or more in a year.
