Seat Toad!

Bid for first class, for as little as 5p

Our innovative Seat Toad allows you to bid for empty first class seats from as little as 5p.

Ever want to be spoilt rotten with a CELEB endorsed sandwich, crisps and drink (worth AT LEAST 3!!), sitting in a comfortable seat, remembering the times when we used to have a reliable catering service?

To be eligible for an upgrade please be aware of the following rules:

  1. Eligible tickets must be purchased from window 2 at Kings Cross ticket office on Tuesday's between 08:00 and 08:10, or at Peterborough ticket office window 1 between 09:59 and 10:01. We are working to support tickets purchased by other means in the near future.
  2. To upgrade send your ticket and enclose an SAE with a cheque for your preferred bid amount. If your bid is accepted we will send you a new first class ticket valid on this service.
  3. Please allow 20 working days for processing. Virgin Train's East Coast on the east coast can not be liable for tickets lost in the post or those which we are unable to process in time.
  4. If we accidentally provide a full catering service on the train your upgrade will be void and you will have to return to standard.

It's as simple as that! Good luck!

Most stations have a Burger King in or near them for a good reason, make use of it!
