Here’s a few tips to make your journey as smooth as possible if you are travelling over the festive period.
Plan your journey
Book your train tickets in advance and reserve a seat for your journey.
We recommend using E-tickets where possible so you can travel paperless and skip the station queues. You can easily and securely store your e-ticket in the Hull Trains app.
How long will it take to get from A to B? Our handy Hull Trains app can help you plan your journey door-to-door. You can download our free mobile app here. Plan, book and check travel updates on the go with the Hull Trains app!
Before you board
Give yourself plenty of time to reach your departure station and to board your service. To help you plan your journey with us, use our Live Trains tool to see how busy each carriage is in real time. Carriages are highlighted green, amber or red in accordance to how busy they are. You can find out more about our Live Trains tool here.
We offer an at-seat trolley service for our passengers travelling in Standard Class, more information can be found here. For passengers travelling in First Class, we have a selection of freshly made sandwiches, light refreshments and hot and cold drinks, subject to availability.
Over the festive period, many passengers will be travelling with luggage. Our Paragon fleet has improved luggage storage including luggage racks at the end of each carriage, deeper overhead storage and space beneath seats. On busier services, luggage storage space can be limited so our on board luggage allowance is 3 items per person - a maximum of one large suitcase, a carry on bag and a small bag. Remember to never block any doorways, aisles, reserved seats or wheelchair spaces. Find out more about luggage on board Hull Trains services.
Our modern and new Paragon fleet is made up of 5 state-of-the-art Hitachi trains. Learn more about our trains here.
Keep yourself occupied on your journey with our free 4G WiFi. You can also charge your devices with our 3-pin plug and USB sockets at every seat.
