When travelling down to London I often pay more than £50 so this is a cracking deal.

This is for advanced bookings up to the 26th May 2010

Or you could just go to your local station ticket office, the trainline do not have the monopoly on these sort of tickets - in fact if you pay for delivery you pay more using thetrainline than your local ticket office.
Also, tickets at this sort of price are nothing new, and for mid-long distance journeys are available anywhere in the country.
Only a few weeks ago I told a passenger who had paid an obscene amount of money to go from London to Glasgow via the trainline that if they had come to the ticket office we could have sold her a ticket for £8 single.
As a general rule book 4-6 weeks before you wish to travel for the very best prices, however its always worth going to your local ticket office the day before if necessary as sometimes there are still great deals available.
Ticket office staff are usually well trained and know how to get the best deal, and are duty bound to sell you the cheapest possible ticket.
Thetrainline is a nightmare for rail staff as they do not make clear the restrictions on these tickets and people buy them because they are cheap not realising that they are of no use for the journey they are making. If a ticket is bought from the trainline then there is little the train company can do if the ticket is not appropriate for the journey being made.
Edit: this price will be available beyond the 26th May as this is a permanent price not a promotion. However as I say these prices only become available 4-6 weeks before the date of travel, so from the middle of may you can buy tickets for june etc.
MSE have a good article on how to get the best price here: http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/travel/cheap-train-tickets

I booked Liverpool to London - for next Tues about a month ago, there was lots of £11 each way trains available coming back the next day - hotels expensive though - premier inn double room cost £124 for the one night!

MSE says to book 12 weeks before travel, which I've always done if I know about travel in advance. Are more tickets released nearer the time of travel?

i use eastcoast.co.uk (no delivery or card fees and option cheaper than trainline) and have occasionally bought tickets the night before (and picked up the station), all for far less than i wouldve paid on the day. im travellin from newcastle - london in a couple of weeks for £7, and can often get to harrogate from newcastle for £4.60 (a single just to harrogate from york is £4.65 i think if bought on the train). i do have a young persons card which saves a third but its still not bad and I cant justify getting a car for these trips just yet.

from my experience, the east coast lines seem to have much better reductions on tickets than the west. some long distance lines dont even sell discounted advanced fares ive noticed.

That is true, that was my mistake.
I usually tell people to book 4-6 weeks in advance as this is usually enough - not many people know they are travelling 12 weeks in advance.
No more tickets are released closer to the time, as I say it was my mistake.

I was thinking at one time of sending my daughter there for University , after reading the comments regards the city I realised that contrary to popular belief they where indeed safer in Liverpool !

Dont book throught the trainline, they charge you a fee!!!

If you want cheap trains either go to [url]www.nationalrail.co.uk[/url] and then choose virgin trains on the final page or go directly through virgin trains! You can also choose tables and power supplies on the Virgin site.

The train line have no cheaper fares than any of the above two sites they all you the same availablility system for tickets!
#17
I always pay £11 each way when travelling to Liverpool, if I book long enough in advance.

Do not book Trainline as they charge postage and CC fees. Just book on Virgin trains and you pay just the train fare only.

It is a good deal, but thought most people who travel this way know about it. It's not a special offer, just what it costs if you book early enough.
#18
i can't find the same fare in nationalrail.co.uk but only on the mobitix website. is there a way i can also apply the railcard discount as well?
#19
i want to book for july but the calender on their site doesnt go that far

If you're travelling from Liverpool I recommend London Midland trains. Takes longer than Virgin but it's cheaper. I can get a flexible return for £15.85 for travel tomorrow and return anytime within a month. That is with a railcard however. To get those prices you have to click "show other routes" and then London Midland trains only. In April they even had an offer on where it was only £6.60 return with a railcard.

Virgin charge nearly three times as much for that same ticket. It all comes down to whether you want speed or cheap.

While the Train Line deal is a bit cheaper if you can book in advance, if you can't I'd certainly recommend you use London Midland. Unfortunately their trains don't run to Manchester.

Went to Liverpool 2 years ago, no problems, in fact quite enjoyed the place. Been to Manchester twice and had car broken into once ... the other time it never stopped raining! Bloody miserable place if you ask me. Good to go to by train though ... as long as you don't get off !!! :lol:
