This locked topic will be updated with details of the dates for which Advance Purchase tickets are available for GWR services.  It is worth remembering that sometimes a walk up return ticket can be cheaper, or only slightly more expensive, than two Advance singles and offer greater flexibility so it is always worth checking both prices and not automatically going for an Advance ticket which restricts you to a chosen train.  Also note if travelling at weekends and wishing to go first class, it is sometimes more economical to buy a standard class walk-up ticket and upgrade to Weekend First on board.

February 2018 update: As the GWR website now gives regularly updated booking horizon dates it is now simpler to direct you straight to their page, rather than repeating the same thing verbatim here.

Unusually, I'm going to give this particular topic a 'bump', simply because advance tickets for the Christmas and New Year period are now available.

My thanks to my colleague bobm for his updates on this topic.  Wink

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.
