Weekend upgrades

Enjoy the comfort of First Class for as little as £10 extra.

When you’re on a long journey, little touches can make all the difference. And at the weekend, we often have space in First Class if you want to kick back and relax.

  • spacious seats, all with tables and extra legroom
  • USB sockets and enhanced Wi-Fi
  • complimentary snackbox, and hot and cold drinks served at your seat
It’s easy to upgrade, the price just depends on the number of zones you travel through. When you’re on board, talk to one of our friendly team. They’ll let you know if any seats are available.

And even if you need to change to another GWR train as part of your trip, you’ll only pay one fare for the whole journey.

1 zone - £10 2 zones - £15 
3 zones - £20 4/5 zones - £25
