Changing your ticket

Before we can change your ticket, we need to know what sort of ticket you bought. Note that Advance tickets are tickets purchased for specific services, while Off Peak or Anytime tickets are valid on several. Advance tickets always come with a seat reservation, while holders of Off-Peak and Anytime tickets may need to make a reservation separately in order to travel.

  • I have purchased an Advance ticket
    • Advance tickets can currently be amended for another date / time from your point of sale or, if purchased for a Grand Central journey between November 7 2020 and December 2 2020, or between January 9 2021 and March 26 2021, refunded, without a fee. Please note that the origin / destination stations can’t be amended - you will need purchase a new ticket if you wish to change this.

      If you purchased your ticket through the Grand Central website, please email us at [email protected] or call 0345 603 4852 (option 3, then option 2) to amend your journey. If your tickets have been collected, please return them to the below address with a covering letter outlining your request.

      There is no cost for this service - the normal £10 admin fee per ticket is currently suspended.

  • I have purchased an Off Peak or Anytime ticket
    • Ticket type: Anytime

      Please note, your changed ticket will need to have a reserved seat for a specific service in order to travel on it, as we are currently operating reservation-only seating.

      Change date
      For Anytime Return tickets, if the date of outbound travel is made within 5 days of date stated on ticket and return travel within 1 calendar month then this is within the terms and conditions of the ticket. You do not need to tell us of the change.

      For Anytime Single tickets, you can travel on the date shown on the ticket, or on the following day. You do not need to tell us of the change.

      Change time
      The ticket is flexible so you can travel at any time of day. You do not need to tell us of the change.

      Change route
      You can change the departing/arrival station by cancelling the ticket(s) online and buying new ones.

      Ticket type: Off-peak / Super Off-peak

      Please note, your changed ticket will need to have a reserved seat for a specific service in order to travel on it, as we are currently operating reservation-only seating.

      Change date

      Change time
      You can travel on any off peak train on valid dates without having to tell us of change. If you need to travel at peak times, then you will need to cancel your off-peak tickets online and purchase new ones for the new time.

      Change route
      You can change the departing/arrival station only by cancelling the ticket(s) online and buying new ones.

      If you have purchased an Off-peak or Anytime ticket from grandcentralrail.com, opted for Vending Machine delivery and not collected your ticket, you can amend it automatically by logging into My Account and selecting the ticket you wish to change.

      Please make sure that your address is included in your e-mail when applying for a refund or a ticket amendment.

      If you bought your tickets from the Grand Central website, please login to your account to process the change of journey - please note the normal £10 admin fee for this is currently suspended. Or alternatively send your original tickets to:

      Grand Central Refunds

      Tickets must be returned within 28 days of their expiry date. You may be required to pay an administration fee.

      We would recommend you send the tickets recorded delivery, this is because we do not accept liability for lost or damaged tickets.
