Booking in advance with TransPennine Express offers great value for money on many longer distance journeys and you get to reserve a seat. Tickets go on sale up to 12 weeks in advance which is when they are at their cheapest.

*The majority of Advance Purchase tickets must be purchased before 18:00 at least one day prior to travel, however a limited number of tickets on some routes are available up to 15 minutes before departure (a list of applicable routes is available on our website). Advance Purchase tickets are subject to availability and terms & conditions apply – please see our website for full details.

Buying an advance fare is simple

  1. The sooner you book the better - they do run out!
  2. Be flexible with your dates and times
