Advance tickets

Advance train tickets are released up to 12 weeks in advance by train operating companies and could save you up to 80% – compared to buying on the day of travel.

Your cheap Advance ticket will be valid on a specific train service only and will always come with a seat reservation coupon. Please be sure to keep both coupons on you at all times when travelling.

Advance tickets are only available on selected routes, but you can be confident that for the train times you select, will always show you the cheapest fares by default, meaning you won’t miss out on a bargain.

Advance tickets are non-refundable. For details of how to amend your Advance ticket, please see the Amendment details on our Refunds page. For an example of the types of restrictions you may encounter, please click here.
