Standard Class passengers can now travel in extra comfort at a low price on East Coast services on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays, by upgrading to First Class accommodation on payment of the relevant supplement. The First Class offer includes the benefits of more comfortable and spacious accommodation, free Wi-Fi, a recently introduced Quiet Coach, and of course the at-seat complimentary food and drinks service.
The current supplements are between:
- Between London or Stevenage and Doncaster, Selby, Brough, Hull or any stations south of these - £15 per single journey.
- Between London or Stevenage and York or Wakefield , or any stations north of these - £25 per single journey.
- For East Coast journeys wholly north of Stevenage, i.e. between any two East Coast stations from Peterborough northwards - £15 per single journey.
Supplements are valid until further notice.
Valid Standard tickets include Advance, Super Off-Peak, Off-Peak and Anytime tickets, Rail Rovers, and BritRail tickets. You must purchase a supplement on the train (for that train only) subject to available space in First Class. Please note that Weekend First cannot be booked in advance. Weekend First is only available on East Coast services
