What seating preferences are available for Assisted Travel travel?
You'll be able to see which seating preferences are available once you've chosen a service during booking. Your seat number will be printed along with your tickets. We’re sorry to say that we can’t always guarantee seat preferences.
Check out our interactive seat maps when booking from the desktop version of the LNER site and you’ll be able to take a look at the carriages and pick the best seat.
First thing's first: make sure you're on a desktop or tablet device when you're making your booking. When you’re on the 'seating preference' section click on 'assistance request' and request a wheelchair space.
We’ll forward your details to our Assisted Travel team who'll contact you to confirm the space has been reserved. If a wheelchair space isn't available on the train you've requested, they'll ask if you can travel at another time. In the worst case scenario, you may have to cancel your booking.
If you'd like to talk to someone about your specific needs, contact our Assisted Travelteam on 03457 225 225 or text relay service 18001 03457 225 225. All assistance requests must be booked by 18.00 the day before travel.
