Where can I buy a train ticket?
Buying a train ticket in advance
The best way to buy a train ticket in advance is through our app. For most routes across the UK, you can download the ticket as an eTicket, which is a collection-free and contact-free way to travel – just scan your ticket at the gate. For Advance tickets, you’ll also be able to benefit from Automated Delay Repay when you use an eTicket. If you want to use an alternative type of ticket, you can add your ticket to a smartcard or choose to use a paper ticket.
You can also buy your ticket through our website. You can choose to add your ticket to a smartcard, collect it from the station or have it posted to your home.
