With UK holidays increasing in popularity this summer, Virgin Trains is gearing up for an abundance of children traveling on their new services this school holiday. With this in mind the West Coast rail provider has engineered a new offering for the younger passengers to make journeys as fun as possible and to ensure the parents also have a hassle free trip. 

Emergency Packs
Containing all parents need including disposable nappies, nappy sacks, baby wipes, baby milk and disposable bibs - they will be available in times of emergencies such as during delays and shortages or in case busy parents have forgotten those essentials! Contact a member of the On Board Team in the case of such an emergency.
