Forget the car, groups of 3-9 get 25% off

If you’re travelling with a group of 3-9 people, prepare to become their hero. With our small group savings, you can get all of them 25% off LNER Advance tickets. That means you’ll all have more to spend on lunch, coffees, rounds, or whatever else takes your fancy when you arrive.

And if you don’t have a trip planned, why not plan one? We’ve got loads of top destinations including London, York, Edinburgh, Leeds and Newcastle just aching to be explored.

More than nine of you? Our Group Travel Service can help you save. Check out the details here.

How it works

  • You can book our special low cost fares for groups of 3-9 people: online through this site, at our stations or through selected third parties.
  • Choose your tickets as normal then look for the little piggy bank symbol next to the fare.
  • The offer is applicable to all LNER Advance fares in both Standard and First Class – so you can make an even bigger saving.

Groups – even small ones – can get quite talkative at times. But there may be occasions when groups of seats are only available together in the Quiet Coach (usually coach B in Standard). We’ll do our best to book you into other coaches - unless the Quiet Coach is specified – but this may not always be possible on your chosen train(s). So if you do find you’re booked into the Quiet Coach, please respect the rules and be considerate of our other passengers.
