Can I reserve a seat?

All customers travelling on an LNER train must have a seat reservation to travel.

We are introducing reservation only travel to ensure a safe number of customers are on each of our train services. Our reservation system automatically creates space between separate bookings and allocates you a socially distanced seat in accordance with government guidelines.

How to make a reservation

  • If you've got a flexible ticket (Off-Peak or Super Off-Peak) or a Season Ticket you can quickly and easily make a free reservation online.
  • Alternatively, you can reserve a place on the train at the station travel centre, view our revised opening times here.
