Is there WiFi on a CrossCountry train?

Yes CrossCountry offers WiFi connection onboard their train trips. Though most trips with CrossCountry will have WiFi as advertised, some trips might not come equipped with WiFi, and onboard WiFi can lose its connection in rural areas. We recommend you bring a book or download a film just to play it safe. CrossCountry WiFi is generally best used for surfing the web, checking emails and chatting with friends; you shouldn’t count on the WiFi to binge watch your favourite show.

Are there power points on a CrossCountry train? Are there USB points?

Yes, there are power points onboard CrossCountry train trips. You can generally find one or two sockets per row of seats, so be a good traveller and check if your seat neighbour might want to charge up their devices as well. With the onboard power points, you can charge both a computer and USB devices with a power point USB converter that typically comes with most phones and tablets. Since CrossCountry might sometimes use replacement train vehicles, not all trips are guaranteed to have power points. We recommend to bring a power bank to charge your phone for all trips over 2 hours, just in case.

Yes, CrossCountry offers the option to purchase will call tickets.
