As predicted by the Eye way back on the 6th January National Express is to start charging for reservations.
From 17th May both National Express East Coast and National Express East Anglia will introduce a £2.50 fee for certain seat reservations.
The Eye understands that the reservation charge will only apply to standard class tickets where reservations are not already required.
So if you want to secure a seat - you pay.
At the moment it looks like season ticket holders can continue to book rezzies with impunity.
Status pass holders - no chance!
UPDATE: This from an 'Anonymous' reader...
One piece of good news.
NatEx have finally given in to customer demand and started accepting American Express Cards as a means of payment.
As AmEx charge a higher amount to the retailer perhaps passengers can vote with their credit cards when paying this additional travel tax?
That'll do nicely!
