Fare Availability

Tickets go on sale between 138 and 190 days before departure. We price the tickets on our trains based on demand and availability, with cheaper tickets often selling out quickest. 

*Exchangeability conditions
All our fares in Standard and Standard Premier are exchangeable before departure by paying a £30/€40 fee per person per leg plus any difference in the in price with the next available fare on the day of exchange (if higher).

**All our BP fares are fully exchangeable and refundable before and up to two months after departure. No fees and no difference in fare.

 

When trains are full

It might be that all the seats on your chosen train are booked up already. You can still book a ticket, but we won't be able to reserve you a seat before you arrive.

Seats may become available on the day if some people cancel or decide not to travel. So, as soon as you arrive at the station, our team will do everything they can to find a seat for you.

If you'd like to make absolutely sure that you get a seat, it's best to choose a train that still has spaces available.
