London North Eastern Railway (LNER) is urging customers to book their tickets now for travel for the Easter break.
Services across the East Coast route are proving popular with 350,000 bookings already confirmed between the 8th and 25th of April, including more than 103,000 for the holiday weekend itself. Journeys to and from London, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness are leading the way.
LNER is operating a full timetable, with no planned engineering works taking place across its 956-mile route connecting major towns and cities between Scotland, Northern England, Yorkshire, the East Midlands and London King’s Cross.
David Horne, Managing Director at LNER, said: “We’re delighted to be welcoming more and more people back to rail and our services during the Easter period and school holidays are proving really popular. We’re urging people to book early to avoid disappointment and we’re look forwarding to welcoming customers onboard to enjoy our legendary customer experience.”
During their journey, customers can enjoy a range of locally sourced food and drink served directly to their seat, with a new complimentary menu in First Class and pioneering Let’s Eat At Your Seat service in Standard.
Customers who book direct using the LNER website or app can also enjoy the benefits of LNER’s popular loyalty rewards scheme. More than 350,000 people have already joined LNER Perks, which offers two per cent credit back on LNER journeys and £5 credit for signing up. Extra benefits and further exclusive offers have recently been introduced to members with more incentives to come.
Seat reservations are recommended for more comfortable journeys, with enhanced cleaning at LNER managed stations and onboard trains providing added reassurance. Further information and the best value fares can be found at lner.co.uk
