What is the Business Zone?

Business Zone provides business passengers with all the convenience needed to make the journey both comfortable and productive, and is available on our silver trains (identified by the S in the timetable).

You can upgrade to the Business Zone by paying a supplement and get large tables for working, the widest seats with more legroom than you’ll find on any train service between Birmingham or Oxford and London.

You may use the Business Zone with any standard class ticket valid for travel, on payment of a supplement. This can be purchased with your ticket (if booking at a station) or you can simply upgrade onboard.

On London to Oxford services, the supplement is £15 at all times. On London to Birmingham services the supplement is £30 at peak times, and £15 at off peak times. Peak supplements are payable for use on trains which are timed to arrive into London before 1000, or depart London between 1600 and 1900 on weekdays.
