You might want to remove the London bit from the title. For London you have to pay an extra £20.50!

Don't get me wrong this is a good deal but Arrriva Trains are just awful. Dirty, cramped, lack of seating, lack of luggage space. A real shocker of a train company IMO. I'd happily pay the extra money to travel on Virgin.

Agreed. Travel regularly to Aberystwyth. Noisy diesel ALWAYS late. Sometimes hours late! Tricky if you have to make a late connection in Birmingham. Also from Swansea to Carmarthen. Their 'Sprinter' train has to be endured to be believed. Even noisier and with just 4 wheels per carriage it screeches like hell on every bend. Oh, and last time I got to Carmarthen I caught the connecting Arriva bus. It broke down in a cloud of smoke 100 yards from the station. Luckily there was a mechanic on hand. He had been fixing the earlier bus which had also broken down ...

Oh and Arriva have just hiked the APEX fare to Aber by a cool 250% so no deal at all. This company is a disgrace to public transport. Only good thing to say is they are efficient in refunding fares for late trains ...

i wonder if you would get I.D'd if not quite 55 mmm

Disgrace, I'm disabled and much more "in need"...hypothetically than any 56 year old, I have a disabled rail card but am not worthy of this offer.

To be honest, concessions for anyone disabled\old\past it should be done away with in any case.

Don't use the pull down flaps on arriva trains for food or drinks some are cracked and the hinges and sides are full of food Crumbs and Bacteria
The trains are just dirty take a look
