Book with Confidence - the latest travel information from Grand Central

Latest update - 12/09/2021

Following the change in government guidance on social distancing from Monday 19 July, we have released even more great value seats! This means that you might be seated next to another passenger, so we strongly recommend all of our passengers make a seat reservation before travelling, especially if you're travelling in a family or with others. With Grand Central services now available to book up to six months in advance, it's even easier for you to plan ahead and take advantage of our lowest fares - so what's stopping you?

Book with confidence

Remember that you can change any Grand Central ticket without a fee - the lowest prices are available now, and booking in advance can save you up to 87% versus on-the-day travel! Purchased a ticket to travel with a different operator? Don't worry, you can Book with Confidence knowing that if your plans change, you'll be able to change that ticket without a fee too - and we're providing this promise throughout 2021.
