Do CrossCountry trains have WiFi?
Yes, CrossCountry offers WiFi on their trains. Although most trips with CrossCountry will have WiFi as advertised, some trains 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 movie 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 favorite show.
Are there power points or USB points on the train?
Yes, there are power points onboard CrossCountry trains. 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.

Will call tickets are an option that allows you to book the tickets ahead of time online, then pick up the tickets from an agent or kiosk once you arrive at the station.
