Hot! And you can use your 1000 Nectar points to get either 2 free Vue tickets or 2 Pizza Express mains from 19th July. Nectar Summer Rewards Offer is on!:D

Beware. I tried to take advantage of a similar offer before. I was very careful to make sure that I met all the conditions and, surprise surprise, no nectar points were given.
You could contact the Nectar chat online and they will add it for you.
This came around for me in January and tracked, got my 1000 pts.

Same deal as CB sites - turn off adblockers, script blockers, refresh the pages then try and click through.

I tried this before on something like this and I got all my points. Since you would be filling in all the criteria in the t&cs I don't see why not!

Train pricing is disgusting in general, its beyond retarded that its cheaper to fly to a different country than to go a couple of hundred miles on a train.

Felt like highlighting the Conservative manifesto promises a back track on rail fare freezes. All profits, and billions in rail subsidies even if you never catch a train, go to the Governments of France, Germany, and the Nederlands - even after we leave the EU - and they'll take even more thanks to the Conservatives wanting to privatise even more.
Whether you're anti or pro EU, it makes sense that money stays here and gets reinvested into our services instead of services abroad.
+1! I drove from Leeds to London, spent an hour driving around in London at rush hour, went home and only spent around £40 in fuel. How is a train more expensive than a car!? Not to mention the comfort, I had lumbar support, legs fully stretched out, AC kept me nice and cool, surround sound music, snacks and drinks were really cheap, not to mention I could stop when I wanted. All I had to do was wiggle the wheel a little!
Because fuel costs are just a small part of the cost of running a car - everybody forgets all the other costs, and they're not all fixed costs either. :|
I looked in to getting an annual bus pass to get to work, in order to weigh up options. I quickly dismissed the idea when I saw that it would easily cost more than the petrol alone, and my car isn't particularly frugal either. Add to that the advantages of not having to wait, put up with drunks and chavs and people playing carp music on their crappy phone speaker, being able to sling your coat and bag on the back seat without worrying someone will nick it etc. As I already pay MOT, Tax, etc etc it just doesn't make any sense.

Privatisation has just led to rampant profiteering.

The contracts are coming up for renewal and that's why May is eager to dispense of the fares freeze, so they are more eager to renew their contracts - as a couple of operators have just walked out on, or threatened to walk out on, contracts lately.

Of course, with VED, servicing, replacement parts, depreciation, MOT, insurance and breakdown cover, all of that equates to less than 10p per mile, with fuel around 8p a mile, so 18p a mile, total of £81 for the journey.
However I am already paying for the VED, MOT, breakdown cover and the majority of the insurance whether I drive 100 miles or 20000 miles, so that 18p a mile is a little inflated.
Taking a train under normal costs would have cost me in excess of £90, not to mention I don't live next to a train station nor is my destination next to one, so taxi or bus fares have to be calculated into that too. Oh and one final mention, I travelled on my own, that journey could have been completed with a full car, with only minimal increases in fuel usage, costing £22.50 a person.

Dear all

I've booked the tickets from London Euston to Birmingham New Street for our family of 4 and decided to stay over one night. Could someone please recommended some good deal on hotel for 1 night stay nearby as it was no point coming back the same day on this deal due to the timings and prices which would make this trip very short and tiring.

I would really appreciate if someone could pls recommend a good cheap deal of hotel nearby and any other tips of what to do there once I reach BHX in the afternoon.

Do they accept Oyster card in Birmingham or how to travel and see the city or sightseeing pls ?

Thanks in advance
KewlGuy

Might to useful to some.

You're getting confused - the tickets you're referring to are standard advance tickets rather than a sale, and are often available on off peak trains at times when most people are unlikely to want to travel.

The actual Virgin Trains sale doesn't start till Thursday 9 March.

Unsure why cold... Good spot OP!
It's probably people who are (rightly) annoyed at the stupid Nectar system of not offering everyone the same deals.
It's frustrated me a fair few times seeing Nectar deals posted here that I'm unable to take advantage of.

I saw the ad before I logged in. Is it definitely account specific?

Polite response Batezy I give you that. But what I wrote stands entirely accurate in the zero detail given until people questioned it, particularly given Virgin themselves state a show ticket is required, as do TM terms and conditions. That's why I believe it's an offer just for those who receive the offer email or bought a show ticket previously.
Constructive suggestion: why not re-email TM: all you need to ask is can anyone use the 25% discount link, without having a show ticket at their destination? And until when (that screenshot says it ran for three months)?
And to MrMini- of course he's had pushback, as mentioned Virgin and TM terms contradict what he's said, which is no joke when you risk your ticket being invalid! That's why this needed carefully checking before posting. I had to get a show ticket and another guy had to change his ticket after the offer was first posted and assurances were made no show ticket was required. Noone is going to use this deal if they don't have faith they won't get fined on the train. If the OP really wants to be helpful, he could resolve this very easily.
Don't be put off posting them batezy - this was a good deal particularly with the legwork you've put in to support it (emails etc.) which I would've showed to the inspector had they asked

Here's what I think is going on here. The OP receives a personal to him offer from ticketmaster for 25% off Virgin fares, but with no show ticket needed. Probably due to having bought tickets from TM before or being on their mailing list. TM have an offer for anyone at the moment allowing 25% off fares, to a Virgin destination provided you are going to a show at one of TM/NEC group venues/bought your ticket from TM. But the OP's offer doesn't require a show ticket. The OP shares his discount weblink here, without mentioning TM nor explaining where the offer comes from and puts up his offer screenshot. But it's only legitimately usable by him. Two people, including myself, at posts 17 and 18 query the deal, the OP doesn't answer the questions but just posts TM's email to him where they confirm HE can use it for any journey without a show ticket. Clearly noone else can use it! Why would Virgin and TM run a deal allowing anyone to get 25% off Virgin fares for no reason! This thread really should be closed. It could have been avoided if the OP had checked properly before posting and once people started to get confused and query it. Virgin have said you need a show ticket (ie everyone else), which is what I then did to cover myself. If you don't have one nor the offer email to you from TM, worst case is you end up having to buy a completely new ticket at on board fares!





Oh and I did check. You can see it above. Btw thanks for all of your contributions to the site.

Pete thanks for the theory but really you are wrong. I'm on the mailing list and that is about as cryptic as it gets. Can't believe the amount of rubbish I have got for posting a deal. It's real. The evidence is above. Can't really do anymore. You either use it or you don't.

Wanting to book for April and its giving me the £160 family ticket, but you can only book your outbound journey, what do you do for the return? What if its fully book on your return?


it's an open return I.e. flexible any train. If you know which train you want for the return,
it might be possible to reserve seats at the station.

I don't understand why it is cold either. If you bring a child and get the family ticket it is cheaper than buying an adult return ticket.
All I need now is a child . ..
What would happen if you purchased a family ticket but travelled alone?
It would be considered as if you travelled without a ticket.
Seems very harsh. Suppose your children were too unwell to travel?
if they were to allow it without kids if kids are too unwell, all peak passengers kids will "suddenly" be ill.

May be so, but that doesn't mean it's like travelling without a ticket when you actually HAVE a ticket



It's like using a Edinburgh to Glasgow ticket to go from Birmingham to London. Yes, you're travelling with a ticket, but you'll be prosecuted as if you didn't have a ticket.

As a daily commuter in Birmingham they can keep their gifts I would just like a seat occasionally

That's what companies like Virgin don't understand. All customers actually want are punctual trains and a SEAT! Anything else is just smoke and mirrors trickery. I.e. Stuff your presents Virgin and please concentrate on providing a proper train service.

great find but so unfair should make it national anything in wiltshire you know of

Noticeable that Virgin only consider Christmas cheer is deserved by London and Birmingham and Northeners, Welsh, N Irish and Scots do not deserve a treat - really good customer relationship building and company branding - possibly a real loss leader.

How many times are the same people going to walk past?!

I wouldn't think too many unless they have the whole day to waste. When I walked past yesterday, there were over 200 people queuing up. Probably took over an hour to clear that lot. Sadly, I didn't want to miss my train, so no gifts for me. :(

Obviously different cost/booking & usage terms to this expected Sale (can book Advances upto around 10/2/17 currently).

Does it come with a free Corbyn?
Nah, just a guarantee that all the seats are already booked and they'll happily hand over security camera footage of you to the press.
Not true though. Seats weren't all booked. CCTV is property of Virgin Trains. T & C's will enable the use as they see fit. Don't like it, don't use them.
Every image I saw showed booking slips in the back of seats? Now I know a lot of people ignore them and sit anywhere, and the train staff don't give a carp about this, but personally I don't sit in reserved seats.
And yet he agreed afterwards there were free seats, but he wanted to sit with his wife. Oh, the story was written by one of his supporters and offered to numerous papers. Only the Guardian took them up on it, even the Huff Post saw it for what it was.http://www/news/night-jeremy-corbyn-stood-in-honour-of-dead-ira-terrorists-1-7008757http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/05/03/hamas-welcomes-jeremy-corbyns-refusal-to-condemn-islamist-group/.newsletter.co.ukhttps://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwiz69HLvPHPAhXHIMAKHWzsBHkQtwIIHjAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DQfiMF4ekN5Y&usg=AFQjCNH32CoWsf4pAyXpQegQwNtGkOKiHA&sig2=vkfaZvfGyug_VzCXjJaoQQ&bvm=bv.136593572,d.d24http://www.spectator.co.uk/2016/06/way-to-go-jeremy-corbyn-root-out-those-jew-haters/

First 2 say url not found, last one says he supports Palestine over Israel but so do I so hardly bothered. Not watched the video as running short of data, where is the evidence on the train seats?

Would that be a problem? Infinitely preferable to a Gove, a Johnson or any one of the other similarly loathsome and untrustworthy individuals of that persuasion. 8)
Jew hating, IRA supporting Hamas supporting, British Troop hating Hypocrite Corbyn you mean?
I think you need to get out more, and read a proper newspaper.

how do you actually book this? Can you only book it on a friday or do you have to book by friday?
Do I need to select a certain option to get this?
You can book any day or time up until the Friday before at 6PM. Just search Manchester to London. It's called a Saturday Day Travelcard. Find the price that's £41.20 return. You will then be able to select an outward and return train. You must get on exact train for outward. For the return you'll receive a reservation but you can ignore it and get any train coming back.
Cheapest I can find is £41.20 each way

Despite numerous so called sales, I've never actually found a fare that is cheaper than a normal advance fare. Is Virgin hoodwinking us?
Crewe > Edinburgh 2 Adult First Class return £108. Thats a bargin.
I was able to go straight to the website and find the same for £87.40 without any sale, with a normal advance ticket for 2, so my point stands.

The cheapest first class advance ticket from Edinburgh to Crewe on VTWC is £38.50 when there isn't a sale, so £77 return for one person. So no way could you get two for £87.40.

Cheaper tickets are available on Transpennine for as little as £33.10 each way. So if there are two people getting those fares, both using a railcard, it would come to the figure you quoted.

But it's not a fair comparison. Transpennine first class gets you a small snack and a drink in a paper cup - if you're lucky and there's a catering trolley on the train. With Virgin you get proper meals, proper drinks, alcohol and use of the first class lounge at the stations at both ends, where you can get free snacks and drinks.

I cant find any such thing. Current pricing now is £101.40 for 1 adult return traveling standard class.
The price difference between Standard (Advance) and First Class is almost double when not on sale. Compare that with a difference of £20 during the sale!

virgin trains logoFrom Music and Soft Drinks to UK Train Travel

The Virgin Group, the company behind Virgin Records, and an assortment of other companies like Virgin Cola and Virgin Galactic, decided to enter the rail business during the privatisation of British Rail. Virgin bid on a number of different franchises and was successfully awarded Virgin CrossCountry and Virgin West Coast in 1997.

To most travellers Virgin Trains simply means any train with the Virgin logo on it, but Virgin Trains is actually just the name for the company that operates on the West Coast of the UK, between London and Scotland. Virgin's operations on the East Coast operate under the name Virgin Trains East Coast and they run a separate website at www.virgintrainseastcoast.com.

The Virgin Rail Group is the name of the company that manages Virgin's individual rail company. Combined, the Virgin Rail Group offers train services to some of the UK's most popular cities including London, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, and Liverpool. Tickets for the different rail franchises can be purchased on their online store at www.virgintrains.co.uk.

New Virgin Trains Website

Buying Tickets for a Virgin Train

There are several ways to buy a Virgin Trains train ticket:

  • The old-fashioned way – Simply queue up at the train station and purchase a ticket at the ticket counter.
  • Fastticket machines – These machines allow you to purchase your ticket via a machine, which can sometimes be quicker than the old-fashioned way. You can also use Fastticket machines to pick up tickets that you've purchased online or via another method.
  • Online at virgintrains.co.uk – Tickets can be purchased online at Virgin's website. Purchased tickets can then either be sent by post or as an e-ticket. If you have an e-ticket, you will need to print it out and show it along with some ID when you board the train. Alternatively, you can opt to collect a standard printed ticket at the train station.
  • On the Virgin Trains app – Known as m-tickets, these tickets are stored on your phone and mean you don't have to worry about printing or collecting the tickets at the train station.

Types of Ticket Available at Virgin Trains

  • Standard ticket – Just a ticket to get you from A to B. Depending on the route, First Class options may be available.
  • Group travel ticket – If you're travelling with 3 or more people, a group travel ticket may be more cost-effective than several individual tickets.
  • Family travel ticket – Family tickets offer savings for up to two adults and two children.
  • Railcards – Railcards offer significant savings off the cost of rail travel in the UK. The most common rail cards are the 16-25 Railcard, Senior Railcard, and Disabled Persons Railcard, however, there are other specialist railcards, for example, the Two Together Railcard which is designed for couples or best friends that frequently travel together.
  • Season ticket – Season tickets give you unlimited travel on a specific route of your choice. It's ideal for commuters who make the same journey several times per week.
  • Eurostar tickets – If you fancy the idea of travelling by train to another country, then this could be just the ticket.
  • Sleeper train tickets – Sleeper trains, for example, the Caledonia Sleeper, are an experience in themselves and offer a more comfortable experience for long distance journeys.
  • Ferry tickets – Although Virgin Trains don't normally specialise in ferry tickets, it is possible to book some ferry tickets to Ireland through Virgin Trains.

Saving Money at Virgin Trains

Train travel in the UK can be expensive but there are a few ways to cut down on the costs. One of the easiest ways to do so is to travel on the ticket that offers the best value for money. For example, if you're travelling in a group you should consider purchasing a group ticket. Or, if you commute by train, a Season Ticket may make financial sense.
Booking tickets far in advance can offer some savings as can travelling at off-peak times, particularly when it comes to upgrading to first class. Normally, first class upgrades can cost nearly as much as the ticket itself, however, if you are travelling at a non-busy time you may be able to get an upgrade for less than £20. First class benefits include more space, food and drink, and free Wi-Fi.

If you're flexible about when you travel, Virgin Train's fair finder can help you find the most affordable train ticket. Railcards offer significant savings on ticket prices such as 1/3 off the ticket price. Some, such as the 16-25 railcard, come free with student bank accounts. If you travel regularly, a railcard might be a worthwhile investment. Virgin Trains have participated in Black Friday in the past so it's always worth keeping an eye on their Facebook page or email newsletter to see what deals are announced.

Virgin Trains Reward Program

Virgin Trains have a rewards programme named “Traveller”, an exclusive rewards programme that's invite only. It offers perks such as free first class travel on any weekend, priority seating, and complimentary drinks at the First Class lounge in London Euston. To be in with a chance of getting invited, you will need to be a frequent first class traveller.

Alternatively, every time you travel with Virgin Trains, you can collect points with a number of different reward schemes. For example, if you have a Nectar card you can collect points each time you book a ticket with Virgin Trains. You can also collect points with Virgin Atlantic Flying Club and these points can be used to cut down the cost of holidays abroad in the US.

Virgin Trains Payment Methods

Virgin Trains accepts the following payment methods: Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, American Express, and Diner's Club.

Ticket Delivery at virgintrains.co.uk

If you have purchased a ticket online and requested that it be delivered by post, there are two postage options: First Class and Special Delivery (next working day). First Class postage typically costs £1, it depends on your address how long the delivery will take, and Special Delivery costs £6.45. Alternatively, you can collect your tickets from a train station for free or have the ticket delivered to your app or email address.

Virgin Trains Refunds

If your train is delayed by 30 minutes or more, you may be entitled to compensation. Delays of 30-59 minutes are normally entitled to a 50% refund while delays of more than 1 hour may be entitled to a 100% refund.

The process for claiming a refund depends on how you purchased your ticket:

  1. Online: Go to “My account” by clicking “Login” on the navigation bar. From there, request a refund online.
  2. By Phone: Call the Virgin Trains refund team on 03445 565650.
  3. At the station: You will need to visit the train station where you booked your ticket.

Please note that advance tickets are non-refundable.

Virgin Trains on Social Media

Booking your train tickets and checking timetables is easy with the Virgin Trains app on your mobile device. Just download the app for your iOS, BlackBerry, Android or Windows device and you can book tickets up to 10 minutes before you depart.
