A more convenient way to get your ticket

Another way of avoiding the station queues is to try our new e-Ticket. Just like an airline e-ticket, you can show your ticket via the Apple Wallet, as a PDF on your phone, or print it out as a pdf. The choice is yours! Select ‘e-ticket’ to try this option when booking – e-tickets are currently available on all Cross Country Advance tickets. There’s no need to ‘activate’ e-Tickets; just show the barcode to the inspector on the train, or present it to the ticket gate barcode reader to open the gates – simple!




You can now avoid the ticket office queue by purchasing your ticket on our website or your Smart Phone, and immediately get them sent to your device via our app. All you need to do is download the CrossCountry app. 

To travel, simply click the ‘activate’ button on the screen before you travel. Gone are the days of queuing up at ticket offices or ticket machines.  If you’re travelling from a station with a ticket gate, simply tap it on the barcode reader, and the gate will open for you. If a barcode reader is not available then a member of staff will be able to help. On board, simply show the screen to the inspector, who will be able to scan your barcode.  We are now selling m-Tickets on the majority of Cross Country routes; in addition, you can use them on other train companies’ services.


Please don't forget to charge your mobile in advance of travel; if you are unable to display your m-Ticket, a new ticket at the full fare will have to be purchased in order to travel. It’s your responsibility to make sure there is sufficient battery so your ticket can be seen.
