Darlington to Kings Cross return journey no cheaper with these than many other sites.
Misleading title as it suggests it's a Summer offer, cold from me.

Sorry cold from me. Can't get any decent fares and best I get is when it offers me, for example, the NXEC train service from Leeds to Edinburgh for £13.50 each way but can be bought from the NXEC website for £11 each way.

Can't find any "75% off standard advance fares" fares.

found them to be more expensive.....

and if you cant get tickets beforehand then they will overcharge you by almost double......they did with me but gave a me a refund in train vouchers (annnoying!) as i threatened them with legal action because intiallt they werent gonna pay up - outrageous - the only business that seems to think it can get away with blue murder

massive overcrowding

replacing all the buffet cars with trolleys - total joke - even though i know alot of people who dont like this they carry on - only good for the few who arent able to get to the buffet car or lazy blobs

often late - though they arrogantly deny this - in fact on two occasions they asked people getting off at Reading to get off at Oxford instead and get the next train - that was taking the p - just so they could avoid the fine!!

often dont pay compo for lateness as per their refund policy - but i get it in the end

dont care about customers or listen to them - they think customers are stupid

they make up survey results / train stats (appratently my train wasnt delayed by 1 hour standing at Birm new street station - of course i must have imagined it, the bean counter at Head Office is of course correct)

massive overcharging unless you buy x years in advance
expensive tickets - cheaper to drive eg standard open return fares between reading birm new street went up from £62 to £75 in less than one year - they say 8% (what? obviously they failed maths dumb dumb level)

i hate this company

Interesting to hear nobody can find thes 75% off deals. I have been trying to locate any tickets with Crosscountry that have the NUS Extra card 10% discount advertised on their site fo 3 months! I have complained to customer service and although I had several replies they can only tell me "The ticket (note the use of the singular here)must have gone". NUS extra site do not seem to offer any help but I am wondering whether the Advertising standards or Trading standards agencies would be interested as I feel it is a misleading advert. We bought the NUS Extra card specifically to use to obtain this discount.
