We recommend that you make a seat reservation prior to travelling, especially if you are travelling with others. Seat reservations and train-specific Advance tickets are available for trains which are confirmed to run. Trains which are not yet confirmed will remain closed for reservations. If you have purchased a flexible ticket or have a Carnet ticket without a seat reservation, we strongly recommend that you make a reservation for the service you intend to travel on. You can do this by contacting our Customer Relations team on 0345 603 4852 (opt. 3, then 1), this facility is available up to 5 minutes before departure (subject to availability).
