Virgin Trains and six other companies agree to sell advance tickets on the day
Cut-price rail fares can now be bought as close as 10 minutes before departure rather than the day before
Seven rail companies, including Virgin Trains’ east and west coast franchises, have agreed to allow passengers to buy cheaper Advance tickets as close as 10 minutes before their journey starts.
Following the lead taken by CrossCountry in January 2015 after a successful trial, seven more train companies have dropped punitive restrictions that in the past meant that customers could generally only buy cut-price Advance tickets up to midnight on the day before travel.
