Are trains being cancelled because of Coronavirus?
There have been no confirmed train cancellations due to the Coronavirus. LNER and other train operating companies are continuing to run a normal service throughout the UK.
How do I request a refund for my Season Ticket?
If you bought your Season Ticket directly from us, we can generally give you a refund under the following circumstances:
In the case of an annual Season Ticket: provided there are 7 or more weeks validity remaining. Annual Season tickets typically have no refund value after 10 months and 12 days, although they are still valid for travel until the expiry date.
In the case of a Season Ticket valid between one and ten months: provided there are seven days (or more) validity remaining.
In the case of a weekly Season Ticket: provided there are three days (or more) validity remaining.
We are currently working to normal timelines for processing Season ticket refunds of 14 working days. You can see an estimate of your Season ticket refund using our Season ticket refund calculator.
Up to two children, aged 4 years old and under, can travel free of charge with a fare-paying adult. Please bear in mind that as they do not have a ticket or a seat reservation, so on busy trains they will be expected to sit on your lap. You can purchase a childs ticket or Family Return to reserve a seat.
If you're travelling with more than two children under 5 and one adult, you will need to purchase a childs ticket for the additional children,
If your children are aged between 5 and 15 we offer discounted fares which are available on our website.
If you're travelling as two adults and between two and four children, the Family Return ticket might also be a great saving for you and it offers a flexible return ticket, find out more here.
Can I cancel tickets before I've collected them?
Yes, you can. Go to My Account and click on Apply for a Refund. Then follow the instructions.
If you were planning to collect your tickets from the ticket vending machine at the station and you want to refund ALL the tickets in the booking, choose the 'Refund' option. Your tickets will be automatically cancelled and a refund, minus any admin fee, will be credited back to your account within a few days.
If you only want to refund some of the tickets in your booking, you'll need to collect them from the ticket vending machine first, and then request a refund using one of our Refunds forms. These are available at our Travel Centres or you can download a refund form here.
Can I take my bike with me onboard the train?
Yes, we love to be green so you can carry your bike free of charge on LNER trains as long as you have a valid ticket and you have made a reservation for your bike. Spaces are limited and subject to availability.
If you're travelling with another train operator on your journey you'll need to check their own policy too. You can do this by visiting the National Rail website.
How do I make a booking for a wheelchair user?
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.
