Advance train tickets now available one hour before travel

We all know that booking ahead can save you serious cash, but if you’re no good at forward planning, we’ve got some pretty awesome news... 

We’re now selling our Advance train tickets on the same day as travel, right up until 60 whole minutes before the train starts its journey. So we can get you onboard, on the day, for less. Just check online (at least an hour before you travel) and see if Advance tickets are available.
