These tickets are for groups of up to six consisting of a minimum of one adult and one child and up to two adults and up to four children.

Tickets must be booked in advance of travel and are subject to availability.

Advance tickets are valid only on the specific booked train, but can be changed before departure of the first reserved service.

Change of Journey

Changes to time or date of travel must be arranged before departure of the first reserved train printed on the ticket, after which the ticket has no value and a new one must be purchased. Customers will need to present the ticket(s) and reservation(s) when they request a change.

Changes to tickets cannot be made on-board the train. If customers board a train without a ticket and reservation for that service, a new ticket must be purchased.

The origin, destination and Train Company or route shown on the ticket(s) must remain the same.

The difference between the price paid and cost of the next suitable fare for the journey is payable.

An administration fee of no more than £10 may be charged per ticket (per group) for each change to a journey. If customers change to a train on which a cheaper fare is available, the difference will not be refunded.

Please note: Where an Advance ticket has been purchased online and the ticket has either been self-printed at home or downloaded to a mobile device this may alter the rules for changing the ticket. The relevant conditions will be made clear when the ticket is bought. These terms and conditions (“terms”) apply to the discounted fares offered by GWR for Families travelling with this ticket.

These terms apply in addition to GWR's full ticket terms and conditions, and in the event of any conflict between any of these terms and the full ticket terms and conditions these terms will prevail.


Advance tickets are non-refundable.

Validity and reservation requirements

Reservations are required on the outward journey only by this ticket type, but may still be forced by a selected return timetabled mandatory-reservations train service.
