What are Print-Your-Own tickets?

Print-Your-Own tickets are just one of the various ticket delivery options we offer.

Step 1

If you choose this option when you book your tickets, your tickets will be emailed to you.

Step 2

You’ll then be able to print your tickets from home, work, an internet café - basically, anywhere you like.

Step 3

And, you can find these tickets in ‘My Booking’, in case you lose them!

Once your tickets are printed you’ll need to keep them with you, as well as a valid form of ID*, when you travel.

*Use any of these to prove your ID –

  • Credit or debit card
  • National Railcard
  • Passport
  • Driving Licence

For group bookings

If you’re travelling together as a group, the ticket booker’s name will be on all the tickets, so make sure they bring their ID, otherwise the rest of the group’s tickets won’t be valid.  

If you’re not travelling together, you’ll need to make sure your ticket has your name on it (add this on the ‘Delivery options’ page) and you’ll need to bring your own ID.
