Virgin Trains offer some great opportunities for traveling and seeing the United Kingdom along with your pet. Hop aboard and let the journey begin to some great places such as London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, York, Inverness, and Harrogate. According to Virgin, “Up to two dogs, cats or other small domestic animals can jump, hop and bound on board without having to pay a penny. Good job really, they never carry cash.” However, Virgin adds, “For each additional pet, you’ll have to stick your paw in your pocket. It’s half the adult fare for the type of ticket you’ve got, up to a maximum of £5 for a single and £10 for a return.” If you’re traveling with an assistance dog and need help, you simply call their Assisted Travel team in advance at 03457 225 225 (lines open every day from 8am – 10pm). Virgin Trains welcomes assistance dogs, and well-behaved dogs, on leads to catch forty winks or chill out (with their owners) in our First Class Lounges.
