Benefits of CrossCountry Advance Tickets

  • They’re our best value tickets. Generally the earlier you book, the better value they’ll be.
  • You will be reserved on a specific train and get a reserved seat.
  • They’re available for journeys in First & Standard Class.
  • You can get your Advance ticket as an e-Ticket or m-Ticket (or get it as a traditional paper ticket – the choice is yours)
  • You can get Railcard discounts on top of our already discounted fares**

Check details and book early as Advance tickets are subject to limited availability. Advance tickets are normally released 12 weeks before the departure date of the train. You must travel on your booked service or the ticket will not be valid.

You can now change your Advance ticket for free

We know your plans sometimes change. That’s why CrossCountry offer free changes to your Advance tickets, as long as you book an eligible ticket through our website. Find out how to change your Advance ticket for free here
