Arriva Trains Wales have brought back it's Club 55 offer for 2010. I recieved an email from them Saturday morning and saw posters and leaflets in Cardiff Central this morning.
This is the text from their website:
With Club 55 you can travel anywhere on the Arriva Trains Wales Network for just £15 return. To get this great deal all you need is proof that you’re 55 or over.
There's something for everyone on the network whether you want to go shopping in Manchester, take a leisurely break at The Imperial Hotel in Llandudno, visit a National Trust property, Portmeirion Village or if you're feeling brave, visit the children in university. Rail Travel has never been this easy.
Senior Railcard holders and Disabled Persons Railcard holders, over the age of 55, can get an additional £2.00 off the fare.
