About Self-print tickets

Self-print train tickets are similar to self-print airline tickets; they will be delivered to you as a PDF attachment to an email. Simply print them off at home at your leisure; all information relevant to your journey will be included, including reservations where applicable.

Please ensure clean white A4 paper is used to print out your tickets; they will include a barcode which may be scanned at station ticket gates or on board the train, so please keep them in good condition and do not fold the paper across the barcode.

One self-print ticket will be provided for each passenger.

To open your self-print ticket you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is already installed on most PCs and Macs. If it is not installed on your PC or Mac, or your version is not up to date, please visit Adobe to download it (free of charge).

* Savings not available on all routes. Savings only available on Advance fares.

† Fares sourced from Prices based on cheapest available one way Standard Class Advance ticket, excluding booking fees. Prices are based on payment with a debit card and ticket collection from the station. Saving calculated against cheapest fare available on the day.
