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. 

You can view our seat maps to see how close you are to the onboard facilities when you book a ticket, or from your account if you already have a booking. If you would like to change your seats you can use our seat reservation tool.

How do I make a booking for a wheelchair user?

You can still book a place for your wheelchair on our trains. 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.
