If you are lucky enough to have Olympic tickets then National Rail are offering cheaper rail tickets to and from the games.

You do need to have tickets to buy these discounted rates.

An example : Peterborough to London on Friday 3rd August 8.11am train for only £12.50 - normal advance price £28.00

Good for long distances.

For those who are unaware, if you have an olympic ticket you will be provided with a free zones 1 - 9 railcard, so you only need to arrange travel upto your nearest station within those zones potentially saving you a few pennies.

Cold, considering that the only people who actually got tickets were 4 close friends of Seb Coe.

Because that's a really deserving reason to vote the deal cold...

Railcards can also be used with this deal so another 1/3 off is possible.

just tried to book tickets to Manchester for Manchester games...and the price is coming out £10 more expensive that through the trainline!

Not as cheap as the group discount you can get. If, there's more than 6 people in a group travelling together. Worked out more for me from Margate to Victoria.

For me and my mum travelling (with her Senior railcard) from Peterborough to the games works out far cheaper than any other way... I know the deal is not for everyone but worked for us.

It's also worth bearing in mind that if your event is running late then your train ticket is still valid for up to 3 hours later... most normal tickets are time specific trains.
