Can I take my bike with me on-board the train?
Yes, we love greener ways to travel so your bike can be carried free of charge on all Virgin Trains East Coast services as long as you have a valid ticket of course! However we don't have room for hundreds, so all bike spaces are subject to availability.
So, it's worth making sure space is available before buying your ticket. Simply, contact our customer solutions centre before booking your ticket at virgintrainseastcoast.com. Make sure you reserve two spaces if you are travelling with a tandem bicycle.
If you've already purchased your train ticket, you'll need to visit a mainline station Travel Centre to reserve your bicycle space. A little word of warning - everyone jumps on their bike during the summer months, so spaces fill up very quickly.
If you're travelling with another train operator on your journey you'll need to check their own policy too. You can do this by visiting the National Rail website.
