CrossCountry Trains Advance (Single) Tickets - Price Freeze

CrossCountry Trains Advance (Single) Tickets - Price Freeze

Found 4th Jan 2011
CrossCountry Trains is freezing Standard Advance (one-way) tickets bought online (not in stations) on the CrossCountry Trains website at 2010 prices. While it's calling it a January price freeze it's told us there's no end date as it's not a short term promotion. It's also for First Class tickets bought online.

While you can buy other operators' tickets on the site only Advance and First Class tickets on CrossCountry's services are included. Advance tickets include Birmingham to Edinburgh for £29, Reading to Manchester £19.50, and Bristol to Newcastle £27.

There's no booking fee if you choose to receive an e-ticket.

Collecting your ticket at the station costs £1.

Didn't they do this before? So effectively the prices have risen from the 2009 price to the 2010 price?

Blimey, with these deals it's actually marginally cheaper to get the train than it would be in diesel to drive my car on the Reading to Manchester run! Obviously, as with all trian fares in this country, it's still a complete rip-off but compared to the normal cost of rail travel I think this is red hot.

Heat added!
