Business Travel

The route to success

Reconnecting business

We’ve invested £500 million to transform our services, introducing new trains, free Wi-Fi and more benefits to match your business needs. As we start to reconnect and get back to business, take the train and use your time onboard by preparing for your meeting, getting ready for that big pitch or simply just relaxing.

Great value fares 

The easiest way to get great value fares and make the most of your budget is by booking in advance. You can save up to 50% by booking an Advance Purchase standard single compared to an Anytime Standard single based on over 300 TransPennine Express journeys purchased before the day of travel. 

Book an Anytime ticket to give you full flexibility when you’ve not confirmed your exact travel plans or for those last-minute meetings, we also offer Advance Purchase on the day tickets^ which can be bought up to 10 minutes prior to departure, offering you even better savings. Whatever you need, our services open for bookings up to 24 weeks before departure, which is when you’ll get our best value fares. 

^Excluding Manchester Airport and Manchester to Huddersfield/Leeds stopping services.
