Gatwick Express machines allow eurosPassengers can get tickets with leftover currency
02 October 2008
Passengers travelling on Gatwick Express trains can now buy tickets at the station with their leftover euros.
Eight ticket machines at Gatwick Airport and two machines at Victoria station in central London have been upgraded to accept euro notes.
Euros on board
Gatwick Express passengers can already purchase tickets on trains in euros but now it will be easier for passengers to buy tickets in both sterling as well as euros before boarding the train.
Head of Customer Services for Gatwick Express said: ‘We’re always looking at ways of making travel easier and now customers will be able to save time and buy tickets from our machines using euros.’
Heathrow and Stansted
Other airport services also offer the dual currency choice. Stansted Express customers have the option to pay in euros either on board the train or at the ticket office but cannot yet buy tickets from machines in euros.
A spokesperson told Which? Holiday that this is being reviewed and machines are likely to be modified to accept euros in the future.
The Heathrow Express accepts euros, dollars and yen at their ticket offices but not on board trains or at ticket machines.
