Which ticket do you have?

Lumo offers three train ticket types:

If the price of your new ticket is more expensive, you'll need to pay the difference.
  • LumoAny: can be used on any of our Lumo trains on the date on your ticket (or for return tickets, to come back any date within a month). Your reserved seat is only valid on the selected service at time of booking. Fee-free refunds and change of journeys are included with a LumoAny tickets, however, any changes made after your date of travel will incur an £10 admin fee. 
  • LumoFlex: tickets are our affordable alternative if you are after that added layer of flexibility. You can refund your ticket and change the date and time of your ticket fee-free before your date of travel. If the price of your new ticket is more expensive, you'll need to pay the fare difference.
