BT’s trainline portal is now offering the convenience of print your own (PYO) ticketing for selected routes and ticket types. This new service lets you print an A4 sized ticket from your home or office desktop, via the trainline portal, for a number of key train routes.

PYO is currently restricted to advance tickets only – where a seat reservation is mandatory – on Virgin Trains, Greater Anglia, Cross Country, Grand Central, First Hull, and some routes on First Great Western and East Midlands Trains. East Coast routes will be included shortly.

Currently, PYO tickets can’t be exchanged, so you should only use this method if you are sure you will be travelling on the specified train. Also, when you travel, you will need to carry with your PYO ticket some form of identification specified when booking – usually either the last four digits of a credit or debit card, a driving licence or passport. You can find more information by visiting the BT travel pages.
