It's been posted before, but this offer is still on. Just booked myself London Victoria to Brighton on 21st September for £3 each, and coming back on 23rd September also for £3.

It's shown on the National Rail website, but I had a great deal of trouble using their internet booking service, so I'd recommend the National Express East Coast website as it worked best for me. They can post the tickets to you at no extra charge, and no booking fee.

Use London Victoria as the departure station rather than London (All) to find the cheapest fares. This offer is valid on Southern Trains only, and according to their website you can even use some Railcard discounts. Further information here:

Strangely, you cannot seem to use Gold Card or Network Railcard discounts though. So unfair!! Should work for Young Persons, Senior, HM Forces, Family and Disabled.

I've been to portsmouth & brighton availing this offer, when it posted earlier. Took 55 minutes to brighton and 2 hours to portsmouth.

Kids travel for £1

Nationalrail quoted 5 pounds for the Sunday return journey - it then changed to 3 pounds on National Express East Coast, which is a nice surprise :thumbsup:

absolute bargain - my stag do is the weekend of the 20/21st of Sept so i bought 8 returns for 48 quid! bargain!

anyone know of a cheap place to stay over night in Brighton?

Check out [url]www.moneysupermarket.com[/url] which has a hotel price comparison service

Check out [url]www.tripadvisor.com[/url] for hotel review before booking anything, some of the Brighton hotels sound pretty bad.

I've stayed at the Old Ship which was ok - work paid for it, but the rates seem pretty good. This time I got a good deal at the Hilton (£169 for two nights bed and breakfast and dinner on first night), but I don't think that offers available for the dates you wanted.

I'd highly recommend the myhotel - sounds amazing, but not particularly cheap. If you have an AmEx card you can get a good discount. Book through Expedia via Quidco and then you can get Quidco cashback, Nectar points and the discounted AmEx rate. Myhotel is about £100 a night on the AmEx deal.

On second thoughts, on a stag do, you might just want to go for something cheap and cheerful and save the nice stuff for the honeymoon lol

indeed - any thoughts? Everything vaguely cheep seems booked!

Don't know what happened there, I wrote a long message about hotel deals, but it's disappeared now.

Basically it said check out [url]www.moneysupermarket.com[/url] for their hotel comparison service

Check out hotels on [url]www.tripadvisor.com[/url] to make sure they're ok - some of the Brighton ones I read reviews of sounded pretty bad.

Book through Quidco if available.

Did you?!?
Because I did, see ]here :whistling:

Thanks good timely deal for me looking for this trip and could not book it on National Rail- confusing booking system. Rep and heat added.

As far as I can tell, this isn't a particular special offer, it's just the Advance Tickets that are generally available on most train services. You sacrifice the flexibility of just jumping on any train, because the ticket is only valid on the specific service you book for. For giving up that flexibility, you get the fare cheaper.

Saying that, well worth bringing to the attention of those not in the know.

National Rail don't handle bookings, you always have to use the website of one of the actual operators (e.g. Virgin, Southern etc). Sometimes, the National Rail site successfully redirects you, but it is rather hit and miss.

I have used this many times and it works really well but just be aware that you have to travel on the trains you book this for and if you miss the train you have to buy another full price ticket. The tickets don't work in any of the ticket barriers so you will need to show your ticket to the ticket barrier operative to get through.

This is great, thank you very much I'm going to footy (Brentford of course! ) on saturday then hotel for the night for an engagement party - i got return tickets for £4 (inc. young persons). heat and rep added

ps. dammit £5 minimum transaction fee

i added insurance for £1 each way, still only £6 return to london from brighton over two days

it works fine if you use [url]www.nationalexpresseastcoast.com[/url] to book, you can post it 1st class to your house for free, and it cost 3 quid.....tickets still available.

my house?....hehe as I live in Brighton...:thumbsup:
actually dont think my other half would enjoy 8 drunken blokes as much as I would..:x
Do you want something in town or just outside?
as theres quite a lot just outside the town, even some pubs that do b&b too...
Kim

I notice Southern have a DaySave ticket as well. It's unlimited off-peak travel for £10 for a day: southernrailway.com/buy…ils

nice of you to offer Kim, i have booked at st christopher right on the beach - very central and for 12 blokes only 25 quid each !

Does anyone have any ideas on how to travel cheap by rail from London to Northampton? :?:

Original Poster

When to Northampton? Always best to book as far ahead as possible for the best deals.

This trip won't be for a while maybe couple of months from now. The best fare I'm getting is about £29.60 for 2 return, is that the best there is? It's just a day return I need.

Original Poster

What sort of railcard have you got? Is it a weekday or weekend you'll be travelling?

I'm flexible can travel Friday, Sat or Sunday. I've a Network Railcard but the £29.60 fare is with the Network Railcard added.

That's the cheapest I could find too. Not much help, sorry!

Thanks for trying anyway. :thumbsup:
