Hopefully this will make our roads safer getting OAPS to take the train instead
Age 55 is NOT an OAP, jb66

Arrogant twonk!
they think so we don't have to
accidents by age group, DOT 2012 report
70+ =4,882
what i did not see was what percentage of each group was actually involved in an accident.
OP: Offer expires 28/2/15
Your text is right but HUKD expiry is one month premature - ie the offer does NOT expire in 1 week 5 days time (ie 28/1) but on 28/2 for outward travel, with the ticket being valid for 8 days ie +7 days for return (ie 7/3) [subject of course to the 'Friday' included/excluded version you buy, or can £5 Excess if you end up returning on Friday].

Just to emphasise something people often miss - although the promo is an Arriva Trains Wales ticket - within their main area of operation [blue on their Club 55 map] you can use a Club 55 on any operator's trains - eg FGW along South Wales coast, Virgin Trains along North Coast.
"Where can I travel?
"You can travel throughout the Arriva Trains Wales network (blue coloured routes on the map here using any rail operator.,"
ie It's only the bits beyond the 'blue network' where you can OPTIONALLY pay for the add-on ticket to use other operators beyond the blue lines on the map.…ap/

This is all subject to the same peak hours restrictions (and major exceptions).
And unlike Scotrail (who with TPE are the other TOCs that do Club55 tickets from time to time) you may break your journey, subject to normal break of journey rules.

Scotrail also have a Club 55 offer running across Scotland (+Carlisle/Berwick) for outward travel (again not restricted ONLY to Scotrail trains) to 31/3/15 - see…782

Another example of inflation-busting rail prices! Was £17 when I used it 2 years ago. That's a 35% hike!
