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.

To provide you with a better user experience, we are making some updates to the existing CrossCountry Train Tickets app. Don’t worry, all the features you know and love will still be available.

You can now avoid the ticket office queue by purchasing your ticket on our website, mobile site or your smartphone, and immediately get them sent to your device via our app. All you need to do is download the CrossCountry App.
To travel, simply click the ‘activate’ button on the screen before you travel. Gone are the days of queuing up at ticket offices or ticket machines. If you’re travelling from a station with a ticket gate, simply tap it on the barcode reader, and the gate will open for you. If a barcode reader is not available then a member of staff will be able to help. On board, simply show the screen to the inspector, who will be able to scan your barcode. We are now selling m-Tickets on the majority of CrossCountry routes; in addition, you can use them on other train companies’ services.
Please don't forget to charge your mobile in advance of travel; if you are unable to display your m-Ticket, a new ticket at the full fare will have to be purchased in order to travel. It’s your responsibility to make sure there is sufficient battery so your ticket can be seen.
