Book your train tickets up to 24 weeks in advance for the biggest saving

As soon as you know the time and date you'd like to travel, book an Advance Purchase train ticket and you could save over 50%.

Not only do Advance Purchase tickets offer great value for money, book before the day you travel and you'll bag yourself a seat reservation too.

New for 2017

You can now buy train tickets for all TPE routes up to 24 weeks in advance, which is when they are at their cheapest.

In general, Advance Purchase tickets must be bought by 18:00 at least one day before you travel, however a limited number of tickets on some routes are available up to 15 minutes before departure.

All you need to do is be flexible with train times and book with us as early as you can to get the cheapest deal - remember, we won't charge you any booking or credit card fees.

Availability and exclusions 

Please be aware that some dates are excluded due to engineering works and will open at 12 weeks before travel, rather than 24 weeks.

Advance Purchase is now open for services until 15th October, with the following exceptions:

  • Saturday 22nd July to Sunday 30th July (all days of week, inclusive) – Liverpool to Newcastle services not available
  • Saturday 5th/Sunday 6th August – no North or South route services available
  • Saturdays and Sundays 2nd September to 1st October inclusive – no services available on all North or Anglo Scottish routes.
  • Saturday 30th September to Sunday 15th October (all days of week, inclusive) – all services to/from Liverpool

Once you’ve booked, we’ll try our best to notify you of any scheduled changes, but recommend that you always check journey details before you travel.
