  • Superfare ticket successful in “Delivering for the Customer” category
  • Cheaper fare offers greater value to customers who can be flexible with their journey
  • Over 40,000 Superfare tickets snapped up since launching in 2023

Avanti West Coast’s innovative low-cost ticket, Superfare, has been honoured at this year’s Spotlight Rail Awards.

The Superfare ticket won the “Delivering for the Customer” category at the annual awards, which celebrate excellence in the rail sector.

Judges recognised the improved customer experience the Superfare ticket has delivered across the West Coast following its launch last year. 

Superfare enables customers to book a journey for a specific date with the choice of morning, afternoon, or evening slots at a cheaper fare – with the exact time of travel selected by Avanti West Coast.

With around 24 hours’ notice, the intercity operator will match customers to an empty seat on a quieter train and advise them of their reservation details and train’s departure time.

The cheaper fare is available for single journeys from London to select destinations on the West Coast – with prices for a one-way ticket costing between £9 and £30.

Since its launch in early 2023, over 40,000 Superfare tickets have been sold for journeys to destinations including Birmingham, Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester, and Preston.

Bookings can be made at least seven days and up to 21 days before travel, and the number of tickets available each day varying by route.

Sarah Copley, Commercial Director at Avanti West Coast said: “It’s fantastic to see Superfare recognised at the Spotlight Rail Awards, especially given its popularity with our customers. The ticket is part of our work to encourage more people to take the train by providing those who can be flexible with their travel plans with a product that offers great value for money.”
