Ways to save
Our mission is to ensure our customers get the best possible value when they travel with Avanti West Coast. Quite often, that can mean simply changing the way you book, but longer-term solutions are available that can really add up to huge savings. Keep reading if you want to pay less!
Regular rail travellers should really consider getting a Railcard. After paying a one-off fee, it gives you discounts on all your off-peak travel on the rail network, and they’re not small savings, either – most people will get one third off their fares, and 16–17-year-olds can get half price tickets. If you travel a lot or make a few long journeys each year, it’s worth every penny.
How and when you book really matters too. If you can avoid peak hours, do so and you’ll save money without doing anything else. And if you book direct on this website or on our mobile app, we won’t charge you a fee, so it’s cheaper than external sellers, who do charge extra. How can we be so sure? Well, if you happen to find the same journey cheaper elsewhere, just let us know and we’ll refund the difference. Finally, if you’re travelling with two or more other people, consider booking as a group – you could save 20% that way.
