2. Off-peak. Flexible, but with time restrictions.
Off-Peak fares are valid on any train, any day, any time except during the Monday-Friday business travel peaks.
The exact time restriction varies by route, so you'll have to ask. But they're generally valid any time at weekends, and (it's fairly safe to assume) after 10:30 on Monday-Fridays. They are usually not valid on trains leaving London (or Reading, Watford, Luton or Stevenage) between 15:00-19:00 Mondays-Fridays. However, many Off-Peak tickets have more generous restrictions than this.
Off-peak tickets are more affordable, for example London-Manchester £69 one-way, £70 return. Off-Peak fares were called 'Saver' fares before September 2008.
You must make the outward journey on the date shown on the ticket, but can return any day within 1 month. but the exact time restriction varies by route and destination, so you'll have to ask.
No advance booking is necessary, you can simply turn up and buy an Off-Peak ticket on the day and get on any train on which your ticket is valid without a reservation. You can take any train operator's train, travel via any permitted route, unless a specific operator or route is shown on the ticket. You can break your journey on the return leg, but not the outward leg. Refundable less an admin fee (usually £20) if unused.
One-way off-peak fares for long-distance journeys are usually at only £1 less than the return, so don't buy a one-way unless you're sure you won't need to come back.
A few train companies also have more expensive but less restrictive versions.
