Benefits to you

- You'll receive a socially distanced seat reservation
- Available in both First Class and Standard
- Single ticket, giving you flexibility to mix and match.
When are Advance train tickets available?
- Our tickets will always be cheaper the further in advance you book them.
- The earlier you book, the cheaper the tickets and the more options you’ll have.
- If we're not on sale yet for when you want to travel, you can sign up for a Ticket Alert to be notified when our cheapest tickets are on sale.
But even if you need to buy your tickets on the day you're travelling, we’ll still make sure you get the best price available. Advance tickets will be available to purchase online, at Travel centres, and at ticket vending machines (TVMs) up until 5 minutes before the train leaves. That’s just enough time for us to make sure you get a reserved seat.
LNER Advance tickets are issued with a mandatory seat reservation and tickets are non-refundable. Customers must travel on their specified service(s). Please read the terms and conditions.
