and live on Freeview channel 276
The operator is now allowing passengers to buy Superfare tickets for travel between London and ten more destinations in the North West of England: Stafford, Stoke-on-Trent, Crewe, Macclesfield, Wilmslow, Stockport, Runcorn, Wigan North Western, Warrington Bank Quay and Lancaster.
The Superfare ticket allows passengers to book in advance for a specific date, choosing morning, afternoon or evening slots, with the operator notifying the passenger the time of the particular train they will travel on.
Avanti will allocate the passenger a seat and advise them of the reservation details and departure time around twenty-four hours before they travel.
The new Superfare tickets are on sale from July 25 for travel from August 1, with passengers able to make bookings at least seven days and up to twenty-one days before travel.
Prices range between £12 and £30 depending on the destination.
The number of Superfare tickets available on a route each day will vary.
A survey found that two-thirds of Superfare ticket holders would not have travelled or would have travelled by a different mode of transport had the fare not been available.
Sarah Copley, commercial director at Avanti West Coast said: “Our customers have really taken to the new Superfare ticket. It's innovative, low cost and most importantly, encouraging more people to take the train, so we're delighted to extend the Superfare ticket benefits to ten new destinations.”
