The Seatfrog app enables customers who have purchased a London North Eastern Railway standard Advance ticket to bid for an upgrade to First Class for their journey, when they are travelling on an eligible service which has First Class availability. Customers who hold the highest bid when the Seatfrog auction ends, will win the First Class upgrade for the journey they are making.
Yes! Make sure you update to the latest version of our app to access our group bidding feature. You can choose how many seats you’d like to upgrade once you’ve added your booking reference. The number of upgrades in each auction are subject to availability, and while we’ll make our best efforts we can’t guarantee everyone in a group will be seated next to each other once upgraded. Find out more information about group bidding here.
Yes! If you’ve purchased a London North Eastern Railway Advance weekday ticket through a supported third party website and you’re travelling on a service operated by London North Eastern Railway, then you will now be able to bid for an upgrade. Simply forward your booking confirmation email to email@example.com from the same email account you used to register with Seatfrog and any eligible services will automatically be loaded into your Seatfrog account.
As Seatfrog provides last-minute upgrades, we cannot guarantee the availability of accessible areas in First Class coaches. Travellers who require assistance should contact the London North Eastern Railway Journey Care team and check availability for their journey prior to participation in a Seatfrog upgrade auction.
