A First Class upgrade at the weekend (or on bank holidays) is more affordable than you might think. You pay from just £10 to upgrade anywhere between Euston and Wolverhampton, and from £15 on all other routes. Under-16s go for £5 each way on top of their Standard ticket, and under-5s travel for free. So why not treat yourself? Settle into a comfy First Class seat and enjoy more space to relax, complimentary snacks, drinks and WiFi for the journey.

Upgrading to First Class

When you book a First Class ticket online for weekend or bank holiday travel, the price you’ll see is for an off-peak ticket, with an upgrade already included. If you’re feeling spontaneous and decide to treat yourself to an upgrade on the day, just ask your train manager. They’ll be happy to bump you up to First Class and you can pay them on the spot.
