Ooh refreshing! Print your own ticket!

What is Self Print?

We will donate 25p to Cash for Kids Superhero Day appeal for every self-print order.

Self Print simply means you can book your tickets online and then print them out at home - dead easy. It's available on any of our advance purchase tickets, including Manchester Airport Advance tickets.

How does it work?

When booking your tickets, you'll be asked how you want you want to receive your tickets: click the 'self print' option.

Once your booking is confirmed, a link to your secure e-ticket will be sent to your email address, which you can then print off.

You can also log into the My Account section of the website and print off your ticket from there.

When travelling, you must carry your printed e-ticket and the identification document you specified when making the booking. This can be your passport, driving licence or credit/debit card. 

If you're travelling as a group, the person who bought the tickets must be travelling as part of the group and have their payment card with them.

You can print your e-tickets in black and white or colour - it really doesn't matter.
