Update: From the "customer care centre"
Our Address Search database only recognises UK postcodes, so we are unable to accept registration from anywhere outside the UK. Our Development team is working on modifying the web site to accept these addresses in the future.
Therefore, please buy your tickets on the day of travel from the station.
Umm, £140 against £35?
Please, do fuck off Mr. Haines.
