Can I reserve a seat?
Yes, you can reserve a seat on all LNER trains, unless all the reservable seats are booked already.
Tickets that come with a reservation:
- If you book an Advance or First Class ticket, you'll automatically have a seat reserved, and you can use our Seat Picker to change which seat, if you like. You can check on your reservation by logging in to your account here, My Account.
How to reserve a seat:
- Visit your local LNER station
- Contact us on our Live Chat between the hours of 09:00-17:00 - via our Help and support pages.
- Season ticket holders can reserve a seat for free 7 days before travel, on LNER services up to 7 days beyond the expiry of your Season ticket. Once you’ve picked a seat, print the details to carry with your ticket.
Most of the time, you’ll be able to board a train without a reservation if you have a flexible ticket, but there can be exceptions on very busy days like Christmas or Bank Holidays, so we advise you reserve a seat for your journey.
