What is 'Upgrade Now'?
Good question. 'Upgrade Now' is a pre-set price that immediately secures an upgrade. This is an excellent option if you want a quick upgrade without the risk of being pipped to the post in an auction.
If the 'Upgrade Now' option is available, you'll see this on your auction details screen.
Is 'Upgrade Now' an add-on to my original ticket price?
Again, good question. And yes: the 'Upgrade Now' price is the upgrade sale amount, which is additional to your original ticket purchase price. You have to pay the extra amount.
Is 'Upgrade Now' always available?
No. If available, the 'Upgrade Now' icon will appear on the Seatfrog auction details screen up to three days before your train's departure date.
I've placed a winning bid but would like to buy an 'Upgrade Now'. How can I do this?
Okay, don't panic—it's easy. Tap the 'Upgrade Now' button where you can see the confirmed 'Upgrade Now' price. Doing this will override your current bid, and you'll automatically receive the upgrade. Once the payment is sorted, we'll make you disappear from the auction (just like magic).
Is Seatfrog's 'Upgrade Now' feature cheaper than buying an upgrade on the train?
Well, pricing is influenced by several factors, including train capacity and seat availability. Instead of paying for a full-price ticket onboard, buying a Seatfrog' Upgrade Now' ticket usually works out cheaper.
