Buying your ticket
We want to make it easy for you to buy a ticket for your journey. Of course, you need to buy a valid ticket before you travel with us and keep it with you at all times.
The lowest priced ‘Advance’ tickets are usually available to buy 12 weeks before travel. Try to book as early as possible to avoid disappointment - by booking further in advance you’ll get the widest choice of fares at the best prices.
There are lots of ways to buy your ticket to travel with us, or across the National Rail network, and we’re committed to making sure it’s clear and fuss-free.
We’ll make sure that when you buy a ticket from us you’re given clear and consistent information about the ticket and any restrictions around its use.
