Buying train tickets with Virgin Trains is as easy as pie. Since you’re already online, you’ll probably be happy to hear that you can book train tickets on this very website! You can also book tickets on the go up to 10 minutes before departure with our nifty mobile app.


You can head to one of our ticket offices or ticket machines at a station to buy train tickets there. Keep in mind, though, that some stations may not have ticket-buying facilities – or might only have a staffed ticket office during peak times – so it’s best to check before you travel.

Can I buy a ticket on the train?

We strongly advise that you don't attempt this to avoid the higher prices but in some circumstances, it is possible to buy on the train, yes.
