Changing your ticket

If you need to change your ticket:

  • You can change the time, date, or class of an Advance ticket. There's a £10 fee for each ticket, plus any increase in the fare. If the new fare is less, you'll still need to pay the £10, and we don't pay the difference back. Advance tickets can't be refunded unless you we’re unable to travel because your train was delayed or cancelled
  • Super Off-Peak, Off-Peak and Anytime tickets can be changed for a charge of £10 each; if you bought online, or with our app, you’ll need to claim a refund and buy a new ticket
All changes must be made before you travel.

Advance Single fares vs ‘walk-up' returns

If you have Advance Single tickets for both your journeys and want to make a change to one, you may find a new Off-Peak Return fare is cheaper. A £10 admin fee for each ticket will be chargeable.

If you have Advance Single tickets for both your journeys but miss your outward leg, you may find that changing to an Off-Peak Return fare is actually cheaper. A £10 admin fee will be chargeable.
