Ten minute reservations

Ten Minute Reservation

We understand that when you travel with us, you don't always know exactly which train you want to catch until nearer the time of your journey, but that you still want a seat reservation.

You can reserve a seat on CrossCountry services:

  • When you buy your tickets before the day of travel from any train ticket booking outlet.
  • When you buy a ticket with a reservation on the day of travel via the CrossCountry website or Train Tickets app.
  • You can also add a reservation to an existing booking, when signed in to 'My account' on the CrossCountry website.
  • If you call Journeycare or the CrossCountry call centre on the day of travel(only when purchasing a ticket or amending an existing booking).
  • Or you can use our Ten minute reservations SMS service.

We also have an SMS service that allows Anytime and Off-Peak ticket holders to reserve a seat on the day of travel - once you have decided which train you wish to travel on, and up to ten minutes before the train departs from your station.

The SMS service is available on CrossCountry services across the majority of our network, in both Standard and First Class. Reservations are subject to availability and free of charge.
