Ticket delivery options

Depending on the ticket type, choose how you’d like them delivered - print out at home, picked up at the station or popped through your letterbox. Some journeys also offer m-tickets for mobile devices.

Delivery options

eTicket and self print

We've launched a much simpler and smarter eTicket. eTickets offer you flexibility to choose save your train ticket on your device or you can print your eTicket as you would have done with Self Print previously.

  • Download your eTicket to your Apple Wallet of Google Pay.
  • Or you can print out your eTicket at home.
  • You can retrieve your tickets from My Account anytime.

Simply scan your device or printed eTicket on the ticket barriers to enter or exit the station.

Ticket on Departure

Choosing Ticket on Departure means you pay online, then collect your tickets from one of the self-service ticket vending machines at the station.

You’ll receive a booking reference, which you should bring to station when you travel, along with the credit or debit card you used to make your booking. Simply arrive at the station in good time to collect your tickets from the self-service machine.

First Class post

Just so your tickets arrive in time, they need to be booked at least five working days before you travel. We will send them to you within 24 hours of your booking.

If you cancel your trip, you can claim a ticket refund, but we cannot refund delivery charges.

Next Day Special Delivery

Next Day Special Delivery costs £7.50

If you prefer not to use Ticket on Departure or Self-Print, but still want your ticket fast, we can get them to you with Next Day Special Delivery.

Book your tickets by 5pm to guarantee delivery by 1pm the next working day, and remember a signature will be required for the delivery. 

Bookings made on Saturday before 11am will be delivered by 1pm on Monday, unless it’s a bank holiday when they will be delivered on Tuesday. Bookings made after 11am on Saturday and on Sunday will be delivered by 1pm on Tuesday.

Again, if you cancel your trip and claim a ticket refund, we cannot refund delivery charges.
