Cracking deal, great timing as im going to a few gigs up in t'north! Voted hot

I cant find any cheap tickets!! Tried allways to many destinations....rubbish

Thanks, booked a couple of tickets. Heat and Rep added.

Cant find any manchester to edinburgh, in fact they have gone up to silly prices, £30.50 there, £50.00 back !!!


now this is wierd , i live in cornwall and have just booked 3 tickets to london 60% cheaper than if i was using first-great-western or virgin trains like i normally do

Rubbish promotion and rip off trains. I'd personally rather get there by hopping on one leg than pay these prices.

I want to go to York , cheapest I can find is £39 return

what a load of rubbish. £27.50 return to york from Newcastle. I dont think so. Very Cold Deal

I found Edinburgh to Newcastle, second weekend in Feb for £9 each way,
but I can get the same on national express using my railcard for £8 each way, so TP express is more expensive due to it not accepting railcards on this promotion, so not really a good deal. But would be for ppl who dont have a railcard. so heat added anyway.:thumbsup:

Heat & Rep from me...
Got 2 tickets Manchester - Edinburgh @ 15 GBP

Voted hot, as I've just gotten a £7.50 return Manchester to Leeds. As it's currently £14.00 YP return to my home station (but TPE aren't doing that one), I used this and will pay the £1.00 difference on the day.

Excellent spot, many thanks!

Thanks just booked Manchester to Leeds £8 return fantastic deal heat added, cheers :-D

Sorted - heat & rep added

Trying to get from Preston to Manchester Airport (single), but it works out cheaper to use a railcard instead; no sign of the 'from £3' fares for that route at all!
