Types of First Class ticket

Our Gatwick Express services have first class accommodation and this is clearly indicated by signage on the relevant carriages.

If you have purchased a first class ticket, your journey is entirely on the Gatwick Express route and:

  • The first class accommodation is declassified, or
  • The first class accommodation at the front of the train is full and you are unable to find a first class seat

You can claim the appropriate difference between the standard and first class fare using our First Class claim form.
