Mums-to-be pass

Mums-to-be pass for pregnant travellers

A seat for you (and your bump)

We know it can be tough standing up for two, so we’re here to help.

If you’re travelling while 20+ weeks pregnant, and without a seat, just give us a shout. With a Mums-to-be pass, we’ll get you off your feet and into a seat.

Of course, our Mums-to-be pregnancy pass is free, and you might even get bumped up to a First Class seat if there’s none left in Standard. We can also help get you onboard at a quiet place if you’re travelling on a very busy train. Just see our station staff beforehand.

Need a helping hand warming up food for your toddlers? No problem, just ask our team at the onboard shop and we'll sort it.

What’s more, our trains are now equipped with a baby box (filled with essentials like nappies, baby wipes and tissues) to make life’s little hiccups a bit easier. Just ask a member of staff and we'll see what we can do!
