Simply go to the website and use their cheap fare finder to get the £7.50 fare. A great price as some of their tickets sell for over £70 and it is the fastest train (around 1 1/2 hours).

Don't forget any £back opportunity - eg 0.5% TCB
and if you have a Virgin Atlantic Flying Club membership you can collect some miles too.

While Virgin's site's fare finder may be helpful, it isn't only Virgin's site selling those £7.50 fares
and typically get higher £back via other sites - eg RedSpottedHanky 1.5% (and double Tesco Clubcard value).
Though if you like to print your own eTicket [totally non-refundable!] then Virgin site has that benefit.
[If travelling from London watch out you do select a Virgin 1.5hr trip and not the possibly cheaper London Midland 2hr+ trip]

You're absolutely true, but only the virgin website will show the monthly calendar to show the reward fare, unlike redspottedhanky which mixes in london midland that takes twice as long! It could be a good idea to look on virgin first and then book through sites like redspottedhanky (with whom you can use £5 clubcard vouchers for £10 train travel). Thanks!

Hopefully not as explained above and recognised by OP - because you can instead use say TopCashBack to say RedSpottedHanky
get say 1.5% of TCB so 11.25p
which you then get 5% bonus on payout in TescoClubcard points = 11.81p worth
Which you then covert to RedSpottedHanky at double = 23.62p worth of train travel at RSH
ie over 3% and all those 24p's addup! [eg if 2 of you are going up/back we're at £1 already]
PLUS you get some RSH credit in THEIR rewards/loyalty scheme too!

[Though personally I use Virgin Train's site every now and then to keep my Virgin Atlantic Flying club miles alive - eg they expire after three years without any activity on the account - such as credit for buying a Virgin Trains ticket on Virgin's site. Beware though you ONLY get Flying Club miles for Virgin Train ticket journeys, not other railco's bought via Virgin Trains site.]

TCB is good, as long as there's no processing fee (almost booked a ticket to London with Southern last week, but got to payment page and there was a £1.50 charge - bought diect from station instead. Another ticket site was £2.50)
Good post - hot

London Midland do tickets for £6 each ways
The trains take about 40 minutes longer, though.
