Waiting List Tickets

Waiting List tickets are available to purchase from all SAR stations when the train you plan to travel on is fully booked.

Waiting List tickets are ideal for those customers who need to travel on the next available service, but all seats have already been taken.

Our Waiting List tickets are available to purchase from one hour prior and until 10 minutes before the train departure time in either Business or Economy Class from the Station Ticket Office.

Tickets are allocated without a seat number in the applicable class of travel, and Waiting List ticket holders must wait in an identified area of the station until the boarding gate has closed (5 minutes before departure), when provided the number of Waiting List ticket holders is lower or equal to the number of non-boarded passengers, ticket holders will then be permitted to board the train.

Once onboard the train, Waiting List ticket holders will be directed to an unoccupied seat in the equivalent class of travel by the Train Captain.

In the event that when the Boarding Gate closes, there are more Waiting List ticket holders than non-boarded customers, you will be able to obtain a 100% refund on your ticket or moved to the next available service.
