Advance tickets now available to buy up to two hours before departure

If you’re always getting called to last minute meetings, then we’ve got some awesome news for you....

You can now book Virgin Trains East Coast Advance tickets from Edinburgh, Leeds, Wakefield, Doncaster, Grantham and Peterborough to London King’s Cross up to 2 hours* before your train leaves. TWO HOURS. So you can get on board, on the day, for less. 

Previously our Advance tickets were only available to buy up to 23.59 on the day before travel.

When you buy on the day, you still get all the benefits of our Advance tickets.

They’re the cheapest for on the day travel for most journeys (subject to availability), you get an automatic seat reservation and you can purchase them through your management company.  And don’t forget that free Wi-Fi comes as standard when you book with your travel agent.

Although limited to selected routes to and from London King’s Cross at the moment, we’ll be introducing many more routes over the coming months.  We’ll keep you posted.
