Industrial action during December.
Unfortunately, the RMT union has called a number of strikes for December (the next scheduled dates are Saturday 23 December, Sunday 24 December, Wednesday 27 December and Sunday 31 December.) that will significantly affect CrossCountry train services. We will be operating a reduced service but running some longer trains. Amended timetables will be confirmed nearer to each strike day, so please keep checking this page for details before using any on-line journey planners. Click here for the latest information.
Getting your CrossCountry complimentary ticket
Buy tickets for any train journey in Britain. We cross more of the country than any other train company.
To get your CrossCountry complimentary ticket, click the ‘Buy tickets’ button to reveal the ‘Find your train’ panel. Enter your journey details in this section and then click ‘Find my train’.
Please note that only one single ticket can be ordered at a time, therefore you are unable to add a return journey.
On clicking 'Search', you'll go through to a screen requesting your PIN code. Your unique PIN code is shown on the letter enclosed with these instructions. You must enter your PIN code exactly as shown and click 'Continue'.
Once the PIN has been validated, you will be able to continue to select the train you wish to travel on.
