First Class

The ultimate in luxury. Wider seats, more legroom, a wider aisle and a quieter, more refined environment. Seats in first class are typically arranged three abreast. On some services travelling first class brings additional benefits, for example bottled water, a newspaper or Wi-Fi internet access. The price difference between first and second class isn’t always as great as you might think, so why not compare the two? Typical first class seating is shown below:

Flexible

Ideal if your are travelling on business or connecting from other transportation, for example a flight and cannot be sure of your departure time. Flexible tickets give you the option to travel on an earlier or later train than the one you booked without changing your ticket, so long as it is on the same date. Reserved seats and transport of luggage are included.

Saver

Perfect if you are planning your journey in advance and can fix your departure time. Saver fares have limited availability and are only available for advance purchase. They often sell out for mid-morning departures or in the peak season. Travel is limited to the specific train you select, but in return you benefit from a specially discounted price. Reserved seats and transport of luggage are included.

Super Saver

These are the very lowest fares we offer. Availability is strictly limited availability and they are only available for advance purchase. They often sell out for mid-morning departures or in the peak season. Travel is restricted to the specific train you select. Low fares don’t have to mean sacrificing comfort or convenience – reserved seats and transport of luggage are included. First class super saver fares are also available on many routes. There is no option to cancel, change or refund a Super Saver ticket.
