Easter is a traditionally a busy time for rail travel but CrossCountry customers who book online can have access to the cheapest fares. A single visit to crosscountrytrains.co.uk can provide customers with free seat reservations, a personalised timetable for their journey and, to avoid a separate trip to the railway station, CrossCountry customers can now choose an 'e-ticket' option and print their own tickets at home when buying Advance fares.

For those who want to treat themselves, weekend upgrades to First Class are available on the train from as little as £10. Customers can enjoy larger, reclining seats, more table space, a relaxed environment and complimentary refreshments.

Advance Easter fares are subject to availability and start from just:

  • £26.00 Advance single fare from Birmingham to Paignton
  • £25.50 Advance single fare from Cheltenham to York
  • £13.00 Advance single fare from Leeds to Derby
  • £20.00 Advance single fare from Cambridge to Birmingham
  • £16.00 Advance single fare from Oxford to Bournemouth
