Why do I need to select gender when booking tickets?

We ask this at the beginning of the booking process as it may be relevant if you decide to travel in our Standard Class or Seated accommodation.

In our Standard shared occupancy rooms, unless both beds in the room are booked by you or your party, you may have to share with another guest. If this happens, we will make sure you only have to share with an adult of the same sex.

Also, if you are travelling alone in our seated coach, we try to group guests by sex. If you ask us, we will always do our best to make sure that you do not sit next to someone of the opposite sex. 

Our First Class rooms are recommended if you prefer to guarantee your privacy.

Please note our On Board Hosts are available throughout the journey.

Why was I asked to add extra security information?

We take security and fraud very seriously; all credit and debit card holders are subject to validation by ourselves and the card issuer when placing orders through
