Head ho-ho-home for Christmas with LNER’s festive ticket sale

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And now Halloween and Bonfire Night are out the way, London North Eastern Railway (LNER) has started the Christmas countdown.

LNER will place hundreds of thousands of tickets on sale for the Christmas and New Year period from Tuesday 8 November 2022, for travel on dates between Wednesday 21 December 2022 and Friday 6 January 2023. This Christmas will be the first in years without travel restrictions, so trains are expected to be very popular, and it is expected that tickets re going to fly off the shelves – forget the must-have toy this year, everyone will be clamouring for a seat, to travel to spend the festive period with loved ones!

The ticket sale will help cost-conscious customers secure the best value fares by receiving alerts when new dates are released for sale via the LNER website and App, and people are keen – so far over 26,000 people have signed-up for the alerts as they prepare to travel home or away this festive period.


David Horne, managing director at LNER, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming people onboard our services this Christmas and New Year period.

“This Christmas we have thousands of our great value fares available and customers will also be able to enjoy a range of exciting and fresh festive food and drink options onboard. As always, we recommend customers book direct on the LNER website or app and make a free of charge seat reservation for maximum comfort when travelling with us.”

A special festive menu will also be introduced onboard LNER services from 30 November until 4 January 2023 with tasty treats and feasts available in both Standard and First Class. Customers in First Class will be able to enjoy a range of seasonal menu options from chicken and stuffing sandwiches to Baileys Irish Cream. Customers in Standard will be able to use the ‘Let’s Eat at Your Seat’ service to have items delivered to the comfort of their own seat from the onboard Café Bar. They can enjoy Lottie Shaws mince pies, Meatless Farm vegan sausage rolls, Cadbury’s Snowballs and Negroni Spritz.

And if your plans change (as we’ve all become so depressingly used to)? No worries. LNER’s ‘Book with confidence’ allows anyone who needs to make a change to their booking or request an e-Voucher to do so free of charge on tickets for travel until 30 November 2022.
