Hi all,
Travelling from Gatwick Airport to Swindon and back on 6th August, travelling out at 0803 to arrive 0959, back at 1741 to arrive at 1950. I have a 16-25 railcard so currently advances are £5.60 each way.

My question is, how do I go about reserving seat A73 (or one of the seats on that row) from Reading to Swindon? On the way back I might just sit in the unreserved coach as I always like to be as close to the front as possible. Can I select a certain seat on any booking engines, or would I be best placed to try telesales?

Telesales were actually really helpful last Sunday when I booked tickets for my Mum and Grandparents to go to Paignton, reserving me seats near the doors as my Nan can't walk far.

Thanks in advance

Telesales or book at a station. I'd imagine an 9 am down train on Saturday to be pretty quiet though unless there's a big event on, so the far end of coach A is unlikely to be taken.

Best bet is to pop round your local staffed station and book there.
