Good news, we have introduced new, cheaper Advance tickets on thousands of extra routes, which means catching up with friends and family is more affordable than ever. You could save yourself on average 48%* with our Advance tickets.

Advance tickets are our best value fares and Railcard discounts can be used when booking. They’re one-way tickets so you can mix and match them. You can only use them on the train you booked.

You can’t get a refund but you can make changes as long as it’s before the departure of the train printed on the ticket or reservation coupon.

We can’t guarantee availability of Advance tickets as they are generally limited in number and only on sale up to 6pm prior to the day of travel. So we recommend you book early to avoid disappointment

You can get more information about Advance tickets including terms and conditions from National Rail
