Splitting Your Train Tickets on Caledonian Sleeper Trains is allowed and is when you purchase separate tickets for two or more sectors of the Caledonian Sleeper Trains rail route you wish to travel instead of just one more expensive through ticket without affecting your travel options in any way.
Every night except Saturday night, Caledonian Sleeper trains link London with towns & cities all over Scotland, arriving in time for breakfast. It's the most civilised, romantic, time-effective & environmentally-friendly way between central London and the heart of Scotland, for a weekend in the Highlands or business meeting in London.
Brand-new sleeper trains were introduced on the London-Glasgow/Edinburgh Lowland route on 28 April 2019 and on the London-Highlands route from 9 October 2019.
Traveling in First Class with the Caledonian Sleeper is a great way of reclining and enjoying the passing scenery as you head to your destination. You can find First Class options on special trains leaving at night and all First Class tickets come with a sleeping berth (room) for comfort and privacy.
A First Class ticket grants you access to the First Class lounges at Aberdeen, Edinburgh Waverley, Glasgow Central, Inverness and London Euston. Caledonian Sleeper also offer First Class passengers complimentary breakfasts, sleeping packs and an in-room washbasin and towel. The room itself is spacious and has everything you need, from coat hangers to storage units, so all you need to think about is what lies ahead on your trip.
The new Caledonian Sleeper trains offer a choice of Classic, Club, Caledonian Double, Accessible Double and Accessible Classic rooms. All come with soap, towels, power sockets, USB ports & free WiFi. The most popular rooms are described below:-
Classic rooms are compact 1 or 2 bed rooms which can be booked for single or double occupancy. They're identical to the Club rooms in every respect, size, decor and facilities, just without the en suite toilet & shower unit - so see the Club photos below. As a single they have one lower berth, when set up for double occupancy they have an upper and lower berth.
There's a washbasin with soap and towels provided, power sockets & USB ports, free WiFi, and the room has an electronic card key lock so you can lock it securely when you go to the toilet or lounge car. There's a toilet at the end of the corridor, although no shower.
Breakfast is not included in a Classic room, but you can order breakfast items at extra cost on an order form and hang it on the outside of you room door on departure. They will be served at the time you specify in your compartment. Or you can have breakfast in the lounge car.
There is an interconnecting door between Classic rooms 7 & 8 and rooms 9 & 10 in each standard sleeping-car which can be opened if your group books both rooms, ideal for families or groups of friends.
Club rooms are compact 1 or 2 bed rooms with en suite toilet & shower which can be booked for single or double occupancy. As a single, they have one lower berth, when set up for double occupancy they have an upper and lower berth. There's a washbasin with soap and towels provided, power sockets & USB ports, free WiFi, and the room has an electronic card key lock so you can lock it securely when you go to the lounge car.
Club rooms are identical to Classic rooms apart from the en suite toilet/shower, also note that there's no interconnecting door between Club rooms.
With a Club room, breakfast is included, served in the lounge car or in your compartment at a time you specify. You tick the breakfast items you want on an order form and hang it on the outside of you room door on departure.
Caledonian Sleeper Children Tickets
Children under 5 go free, although they don't get their own berth. Cots can't be provided as there's insufficient room, but a lightweight travel cot like this fits on the floor for babies up to 18 months.
A 2 or 3-year old can sleep quite comfortably head-to-toe with an adult in the lower berth, if you can get the little so-and-so to sleep when he's so excited about being on a sleeper train, of course. If you want them to have their own bed, add them to the booking as a 5-15 year old and pay the relevant room rate.
Children under 16 get a reduction on the fare when included in the booking, for example 2 adults in a Classic twin room start at £170, 1 adult & 1 child in the same Classic twin room starts at £140.
