We want travelling with us to be easy for all our customers, from when you plan your journey to when you arrive at your destination. If you require any extra assistance to help you make your journey, we offer our Passenger Assist service.

Our Passenger Assist team will help you plan your journey, go through your ticket options, and pre-arrange the assistance you need when you travel. During our Contact Centre opening hours, CrossCountry will provides Passenger Assistance with 6 hours booking notice on the same of day of travel.  Our contact centre opening hours are 08:00 – 22:00 Sunday - Saturday (Except 25 & 26 December when we are closed).

If your journey involves another train operator and we need them to confirm part of your journey, it might depend on their opening hours to enable us to confirm.  If this is the case, we will contact you to discuss your journey options, including how you might want to undertake your journey.

For more information, please speak to our Passenger Assist team – See below how to contact them.

There are dedicated spaces for wheelchair users in Standard accommodation on all our trains, and in First Class on our High Speed Trains and Voyagers. If you need help getting on and off the train, we will make arrangements for you to be assisted during your journey, including during any changes you need to make between trains.

 

From time to time we need to share Passenger Assistance data with the rail regulator and their research suppliers to conduct research in order to drive customer journey improvements.  

Personal and journey data is gathered and held within the Passenger Assist booking system for TWO years, and made available to all Train Operating Companies and Network Rail for all your bookings, in order to arrange and carry out assistance on your behalf.
