Club Avanti rewards

From small treats to brighten your day to first class travel, a whole range to rewards awaits you.

When you join, we’ll welcome you with a free hot drink in our onboard shop, plus a 10% off voucher you can use on your next trip, valid on two single standard Avanti Advance tickets. As a benefit of being a Club Avanti member there’s also 10% off everything in our onboard shop on every trip you take, along with exclusive member-only offers and promotions from our partners.

Your rewards get bigger as you move up the tiers. Become a Gold member and you can claim a free Standard Premium return ticket. Move up to Platinum and that becomes a First Class return ticket.

Club Avanti has three membership tiers – Silver, Gold and Platinum. The tier you’re in depends on number of qualifying journeys you take in each membership year. Qualifying journeys are trips that are greater than 75 miles taken on an Avanti service.

Everyone starts at Silver membership. Then, if you take enough qualifying journeys, you’ll automatically move up to the next Club Avanti tier.

When you move up a tier, you’ll enjoy the benefits of that tier for the rest of your current membership year and the year after. Please note that qualifying journeys are reset at the end of each membership year, so you can’t carry any over to stay at the same tier. Your membership year is dated from the day you joined Club Avanti.

When you join you’ll get some rewards immediately. Then more rewards will come your way at each tier of your membership - Silver, Gold and Platinum.

Though each reward has an expiry date, there’s usually plenty of time to enjoy them. Some rewards are valid for a year, but others may need to be used faster. Please see the full terms and conditions for further details.

Each reward has a unique code and instructions on how to claim it. When you join, you’ll receive a welcome email with personalised codes for your first rewards and details of how to claim them.

To book your free or discounted ticket, enter your code ( in your welcome email) at the checkout. To make life easier, here’s a quick step by step guide on how to book:

Step 1 – Head to www.avantiwestcoast.co.uk to book your tickets
Step 2 – Enter your journey details, making sure it’s on one of our routes. Download our route map if you need to check where our services operate.
Step 3 – Find the trains and ticket prices you want to travel on. Then select an Advance Single ticket(s) for an Avanti West Coast operated service only.
Step 4 – Select your tickets and confirm.
Step 5 - At check out (review and buy stage) enter your code in the Discount box at the bottom of the page. Then click add. You’ll see the total price reduce. This will be to £0 if you are using your complimentary free code. Or, reduced by 10% if you are using your 10% discount code.
Step 6 – Confirm your order to purchase your ticket(s)

Some useful tips when booking with a free ticket or discount code:

  • The codes are optimised for use on the main website at www.avantiwestcoast.co.uk. We recommend using this for the best experience, rather than our app.
  • The 10% off ticket code is valid for two single Advance tickets (or one return Advance journey) in Standard Class and Standard Premium Class.
  • The free ticket codes are valid for a complimentary return trip (Standard Premium for Gold members and First Class for Platinum members).
  • The codes can only be applied to Advance tickets (on Avanti West Coast services only).
  • Advance ticket fares must be available in order to use the discount code.
  • At checkout, when you add your discount code, the price of your ticket will change to £0. If the price does not change this means you have not chosen a valid ticket.
  • Once you've booked your complimentary journey, the code can't be applied a second time (such as on amendments).
  • If you do choose to book via our app, you’ll be asked for your code at step 1. Click ‘See More’ for the ‘Add promo code’ button before searching for tickets.

No, qualifying journeys are only valid when members book direct via the Avanti app or website.

Club Avanti journeys and earning rewards

To count, your journey must be 75 miles or more, using a ticket valid for travel on Avanti West Coast services. It can be completely via Avanti West Coast or for just a stage of your full journey – but this stage must be 75 miles or more. And your ticket must be booked direct either via the Avanti website or app. Qualifying Journeys must be booked using the email address registered to your Club Avanti account.

Once you’ve travelled, your journey will be added to your total number of qualifying journeys. This can take up to 28 days.

The following tickets are included: Advance, Anytime and Off-peak journeys, including those booked with a Rail Card.

Family tickets will count as one ticket only, no matter how many people are travelling together. A return ticket counts as two qualifying journeys (if each individual ticket covers at least 75 miles travel). Journeys in First Class or Standard Premium have the same value as Standard tickets.

As a Club Avanti member, you’ll receive regular updates on the number of qualifying journeys you’ve made. We’ll also tell you what membership tier you’re in.

Season ticket holders are welcome to join Club Avanti, but your journeys won’t count towards rewards. But we are working on special rewards for season ticket holders and will let you know as soon as we have good news.

Help once you’re a Club Avanti member

Not every journey taken on Avanti counts towards your rewards. To qualify your journey must be 75 miles or more, booked direct either via the Avanti website or app and the ticket must be valid on an Avanti West Coast service.

It can also take up to 28 days for a journey to be added to your total, so you may just need to wait for a bit for it to show.

Don’t worry. Club Avanti members will be sent regular updates, including your membership details and your reward tally. Please save your Welcome email to keep your membership details handy.

If you have further questions, please email us at clubavanti@avantiwestcoast.co.uk.
