You can amend your Advance train ticket without paying a £10.00 admin fee with CrossCountry 

You may change your date and time of travel, but your origin and destination must remain the same. 

Any changes must be made before 18:00 the day before the original travel date.

We are introducing an easement to the terms & conditions of Advance tickets, to help you gain confidence in travelling by rail again.

Advance tickets are not refundable.

However, if the train you purchased a ticket for is cancelled a refund will be provided. 

Until 30 September 2022, if you do not wish to amend your Advance tickets, they can be exchanged for Rail Travel Vouchers, which are valid for 12 months from the date of issue. 

National Rail Travel Vouchers must not be exchanged for cash.
