Do I need to book in advance?
While you can buy on the day of travel, it’s always a good idea to buy your ticket before you travel. You’ll get the best fare deals and save time at the station. You can buy your Arriva Club 55 tickets from our website - we don’t charge booking fees.

Can I break my journey?

What if I change my travel plans?
You can change the date of outward travel as long as you do this before the Outward date shown on the ticket for a fee of £10. A full refund, less a fee of £10, will be given where both Outward and Return parts of the ticket are unused. You must submit your claim within 28 days from the Outward validity date. Any change of travel date must be within the Arriva Club 55 offer period. No refunds available for part used tickets.

What if my journey is delayed?
If you are delayed, you may be entitled to compensation. Further information is available on our website where you can also submit claim online or pick up a form from your nearest ticket office.

Any other Terms & Conditions?
All tickets are issued subject to the National Rail Conditions of Travel which are available from nationalrail.co.uk. This offer cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer. The Arriva Club 55 ticket sale offer ends on 3 March 2018.
