Good deal but suprised you have to pay for children too, my little one is 10 days old, it doesn't ask the age, does anyone know what age children are free? Thanks
#9
Sorry found the details now, under 5's free if not on a seat!
#10
Just tried clicking on the buy now link and it brings up a previous search and the previous costs.

I thought these tickets could not be booked until tomorrow?

Are only certain dates available?

Fantastic deal.. off to see my girlfriend for january! £10 from leeds return
#14
What a deal, Just booked most of the weekends available up to Edinburgh from London, saved soooo much as I usually pay between £35 and £50. (gutted that I'd already booked one of the wkends in Feb for £36 just last week)

This has made my week, and made up for my Dell mini 9 being cancelled as long as the same doesnt happen to these! (Dell would have come in handy for the journeys though)

Its a bit early to ask, but has anyone else had trouble booking the last weekend this deal is available in Feb? It wont give me any return journeys... will have to try again tomorrow..

Thanks so much elmo1314

Might still be cheaper to use £5 voucher for other webiste - so check both out
#16
HOT thx booked a journey in Jan total £20 return for 2! £5 each bargain!
#17
Seriously good deal - London to Edinburgh and back including a bicycle reservation for only £10. I'm almost tempted to go twice at that price....
#18
How annoying, I thought I was being organised by booking tickets from york to london in Feb last week for £10 each now they're available for a fiver :(

I should be able to get the return tickets back at the cheap price, if NXEC ever release them (for sunday travel!)

THANKS FOR THAT - I thought it was just me! I've NEVER booked a train ticket online before and i've been studying this offer for over an hour now - cant work out where I'm going wrong!! Your comments have made me feel better, must be the website! I'll ring them in the morning. :)

I'ts because these places are not on the National Express East Coast line. The offer is for that line only I think. Here's the map:
