Changes at Reading for those parking their cars


Due to the redevelopment of Reading Station, the footbridge linking the main car park with the platform overbridge has been closed.  The new transfer deck is now open for access to and from platforms.  Please follow signs for railair.com. Download a map of the station here.


Same good value


All our fares are frozen and will remain the same as they have been since 2012.


This means for the sixth year running, prices of e-tickets purchased online at www.railair.com will be cheaper than obtaining tickets from elsewhere.  Also, our period return tickets are valid for 3 months!


Purchasing e-tickets online couldn't be easier.  Simply enter your travel requirements into the pink box on the front page of our website, fill out the booking form and you will be forwarded to our secure online payment facility.  You will then be e-mailed a receipt and your e-ticket and you simply need to print out your e-ticket and hand it to a member of staff when boarding the coach (please retain for the duration of your journey).


Please remember that all e-tickets must be purchased before 17:00 if travelling the following day.  All e-tickets are available online up to 3 months in advance.  Please see 'Tickets' for details of our online fares.
