First Transpennine Express have a 50% off offer on all advance tickets on any TPE route for anyone who matches any one of the following 3 criteria:

You are age 16-18 - select 16-18 under railcard option (no railcard needed although you must have ID on you)

You get Jobseekers Allowance (Railcard needed - Jobseekers can get a Jobcentre plus railcard from their local Jobcentre Plus office. It is free of charge and last for three months) - Select Jobseekers TPE DIS under railcard option

You have a 16-25 railcard (normally only 33% off) use promo code Tpestudent - 16-25 railcard needed.

TPE routes only. All tickets have to be booked online and not the app or so it says on the website - although I managed to book a TPESTUDENT m-ticket with the app and got the discount. In the app you can put in the promo code under railcard option but you must also select 16-25 railcard for it to work.

On website there should be a promo code option after choosing ticket but before paying. If you can't find it, use app as explained in the main post

I've found it, thanks. I've been checking a few fares and it's cheaper for me (with Northern Rail) without the discount code for whatever reason.

OK, but probably slower and no seat reservations. A big plus with Northern is you can book advance tickets the day before travel at the same price as 12weeks before travel. The price never rises and they never sell out.

Yeah jobseekers is like a golden ticket to freebies... free dental care, free specs, free shoe supports, free prescriptions, rockbottom landline rental, half price train tickets.

Or listen to your sign-on jobsworth and earn minimum wage at best due to wage compression, lose your free benefits, have tax taken from your meagre earnings, slog your guts out being someone else's profit generating bitch. All for what? To show you are a upstanding member of society, without social mobility? Gimme a break... I don't blame anyone for being a dole scrounger in this day and age.

...btw hot deal OP ;)

Not true at all, if you're on £200,000 a week but you're either 16-18 or hold a 16-25 railcard, then you're eligible.

If I remember rightly. In order to receive a 'Jobcentre plus' railcard you must live within London and be under 24.
It's not available anywhere else in the UK for unemployed people. Very limited terms.

I doubt TPE will have this offer if one can only get the railcard in London as they don't go near London. The TPE and gov.uk both seem to imply it's available nationwide to any age.

anything else job seekers want for nowt?

You also get 4.5% topcashback and nectar points. Always worth checking the northern fares too as said above.

It was available nationwide, then cut-back to London only. London has a much bigger transport budget (x3 per capita) than anywhere else in the UK.
