Innovative low-cost Superfare for flexible travel

Avanti West Coast has launched an innovative low-cost ticket aimed at customers who can be more flexible with their journeys.


Superfare tickets will enable customers to buy a ticket for a specific date with the choice of morning, afternoon or evening slots, but the time will be selected by the intercity operator.


Around 24 hours before their journey, customers will be matched to an empty seat on a quieter train.

They will then be told the time of their train’s departure and their seat reservation.


Superfare tickets are available for single journeys between London and Birmingham, Liverpool, Preston, Manchester Piccadilly and Glasgow. Prices are set at fixed amounts with one-way fares costing between £12 and £30.


The number of tickets available on a route each day will vary and bookings can be made at least seven days and up to 21 days before travel.
