Advance tickets are single (one-way) tickets for selected journeys available in First Class and Standard Class, offering the best available price for each journey.
Tickets must be purchased in advance of travel. They are sold in limited numbers and so subject to availability. In general, the further ahead you book, the cheaper the Advance fare will be.
