Is it possible to purchase a ticket for someone else?

Train tickets can be used by anyone, even if your ticket displays the name of the traveller or person who booked them.

When you are making a booking, you can request that the tickets are sent to a different UK address.
If you do purchase tickets for someone else, please note that the sales receipt will be enclosed with the tickets. This shows the last four digits of the credit card, as well as the purchase price.
For self-service collection, please remember that the credit/debit card used to make the booking is required, along with the ticket collection reference provided when the booking was made.
