Could a admin moderator please review my post.

Dealier

It's not a deal. Vouchercloud's description is misleading, probably done deliberately so they can Earn commission. Anyone buying Advance tickets via this "deal" is paying more than they should, so it should be expired.

TheAngryMob

Apart from your last paragraph, all other points were covered in my post, including cashback deals. Also, I mentioned that it was originally spotted on VoucherCloud, and I thought it topical since folk may wish rail tickets for December, like leaving uni, and as I didn't need train tickets currently, there were no suggestions, as I didn't buy any. I didn't know if the 40% was discounted at final stages of checkout, and folk more accustomed to buying rail tickets for themselves may spot the value, and if the 40% off was a deal, as you ask.

Dealier

I'm not sure what this "deal" is supposed to be. It says 40% off advance fares, but I can't see any evidence of these cheap fares, and I think it's unlikely there are any, because Trainline have access to exactly the same fares as all the other ticket sellers. What it probably means is you can save 40% by buying in advance instead of on the day. But that's the same for every other ticket seller. So its not a Trainline offer. Often buying in advance is no cheaper than buying at the station on the day. Sometimes you can save 75% or more. Trainline's fees make them one of the most expensive places to buy train tickets from. So you shouldn't buy from them unless there's a cashback offer that will more than cover the fees. If you plan to buy Advance tickets, try the train company's website first, as they sometimes have offers that aren't available elsewhere. Also check for offers on Nectar, as they often have things like 1,000 bonus points for various train companies. If there's a chance you might want to amend your ticket, buy from Cross Country or Transpennine Express, as they don't charge the £10 fee that is Standard on most sites.

Does seem unfair. I always use Trainline and agree with your tips so heat from me! Maybe it was the timing of your post. Lots of disgruntled commuters on stuffy trains and expensive season tickets perhaps?

Email them at help@vouchercodes.co.uk with your student email and tell them how long you've waited. They responded to my sister and said if still no email just send in trainline confirmation and they could try to do it. They seemed quite helpful and as there's a few of us hopefully vouchers will be honoured.

to be honest though, I quite like the app, the push message telling me platforms was worth the 25p booking fee alone.... in honesty I tried to book through a no fee train operator site but it was blocked on works computers, the train line site wasn't so work paid for the fee and tickets but it did allow me to test the app. do the other sites have comparible apps?

Repeating the same crap doesn't make it accurate. Trainline ALWAYS CHARGE a booking fee unless it's tickets for same day travel! The train companies don't usually charge and sometimes even have their own special offers.

and in my case, when its quidco who have screwed up by making a mistake, then why should the affiliate network pay, and why should I lose out?

Wattsy12

TCB owed me £162 for a total of two contracts opened up with sky. this would have resulted in a rather good deal. it took me 6 months of constant arguing and proof being sent backwards and forwards and after all that they only gave me £52.80 back last week and didn't even apologise. Quidco usually give around 5%-10% less but there tracking and reliability really is worth it. Someone will probably tell me they are owned by the same company but regardless they do a better job.

pinkstacey

Because they are owed money! Take them to court and pass on what is owed

daalphamale

agreed never had a problem with either site...i set up on Quidco in 2007 and have spent 12,000 through the site getting just under two grand in cashback..never once have i not been paid ..but sometimes had to log a ticket...so all in roughly 10% over the years..other have trumped this i know..but I'm not even that consistant ..usually only use it for big purchases...my advice is always clear cache/close browser/start from scratch - we often have hot deals open and may go to the site by mistake then shut that window and go through T.C /or Quidco which will cause issues...

I really cannot understand why anyone would use trainline. They charge for everything and not sure if it's virgin in drag. Just use one of the train operators, I use trans pennine express, 1% quidco and nectar points for ALL bookings. occasionally I use virgin east coast for london as they give online discount for their advance tickets but they only give nectar points if you use their trains. Big difference is with these two is no credit card charge and no charge for collecting tickets at station. So do doesn't matter where you are in uk you can use these companies. From memory East Midlands trains are similar and also on quidco

Newbold

As the guy above says, you just don't get it - why on earth are you continuing to bang on about it? Tickets bought on the East Coast website will ALWAYS be 10% cheaper than the same tickets bought on Trainline. Not just one ticket, not a few, but EVERY SINGLE ticket, regardless of time, date and journey. You will not find one ticket that Trainline is cheaper for - simply because they charge the standard prices (plus fees) and EC reduce those standard prices by 10%. Can you not grasp that?

callum9999

THE TICKETS ARE EXACTLY THE SAME. If a ticket is available for £14.60 + £1.50 booking fee at TheTrainLine then it is available for £13.00 with no booking fee at East Coast. PERIOD. If a ticket at TheTrainLine at 1pm, 3pm, 5pm, 11pm, 5am is £14.60, then it's £13.00 on the East Coast website. The example I gave was the first ticket available for this price. Just like TheTrainLine have tickets throughout certain days at the price, East Coast has them too. If you still can't grasp it then show this post to a 5 year old. Hopefully they can explain it to you...

yorxman

Who the **** wants to set off at that time of day? The deal I posted gives you the option to travel through most of the day for the sake of another 3 or 4 quid

callum9999

I don't understand how you can't find them? Find your £14.60 fare on thetrainline and do a search on eastcoast for that ticket and it will be £13.00. E.g. 18th Feb 20.45 Leeds-London = £14.60 (+£1.50) at thetrainline and £13 (+£0) at East Coast.

I'd put the spade aside if I was you. To repeat the point booking with the trainline etc is more expensive than with the train companies period. This site is about paying less, not more, so you will get rubbished if you can't accept that. BTW £6 is the regular Chiltern advance fare so its no deal either. When they were doing it for 25p and LM were doing it for £2 those were indeed HOT DEALS ...

pasheast

Carry on kidding yourself.

callum9999

How is advising people of alternative websites that are always cheaper of questionable value as a contribution? And you do realise this is a text-based, not voice-based website? Capital letters don't mean I'm physically shouting at people... It makes it stand out... I'm glad you've finally managed to grasp the concept of train ticket plus £1 being more expensive than train ticket plus £0 though...

pasheast

Chill out, son. Take a pill and lie down. I guess I should have known better than to get into exchanges with someone who starts off his 'contribution' to this deal by shouting.

callum9999

YOU CAN NOT BE THAT THICK!?!?! The TRAIN TICKETS are often cheaper with the train companies. The TRAIN TICKETS are never more expensive with the train companies. The Trainline ALWAYS adds a booking fee. The train companies NEVER add a booking fee. Therefore, it is ALWAYS CHEAPER to book with the train companies. Worst case scenario is that the TICKETS are the same price, which would make the TOTAL COST £1 cheaper than if you booked with The Trainline. Jesus Christ... In case you STILL can't get it (are you 5?), find me a SINGLE ticket with the Trainline that can be purchased cheaper or at the same price as any train operator. I GUARANTEE it isn't possible.

IMHO Chiltern is best. Faster than LM, tables, power points and free wifi. Moor Street is nicer too and even more convenient for the Bull Ring. I also always book direct and get self print tickets. Saves having to go to the station and remember which CC you used! Don't touch Trainline

UncleWilly

Cold - once you've paid The Trainline's exhorbitant booking fees, the prices aren't much cheaper than the normal ones. As others have suggested it's cheaper to book direct through either Chiltern or London Midland's own websites, which don't charge booking fees.

teerex

Good to know

discoinferno

Great price but this is ongoing. London Midland and Chiltern offer many £6 single fares between the Midlands and London. In fact, until recently, Chiltern offered a £5 fare and London Midland offered a £3 fare in their recent half price sale.

I use http://www.southernrailway.com/ Same excellent website engine as red spotted hanky, no extra fees whatsoever and a massive 6% cashback (Quidco and TCB) - the hanky loyalty scheme effectively works out at 1% as £1 spent gives you a loyalty point worth 1p - pretty poor if you ask me... Plus Southern have a full money back guarantee on unused tickets!

I forgot to mention, you can also double up your Tesco clubcard vouchers for redspottedhanky vouchers. It used to be 3x but they lowered it :( http://www.redspottedhanky.com/ ^^ I've spend over £1,000 on train tickets and never had a problem.

Trainline is just easy, I've had emails from them prompting me to get a refund for tickets I never picked up as I thought they were non-refundable.. Although the perks of company suggested sound good if correct

Personally I'd use a site such as Southern Railways site as I've never had to pay them anything extra. http://tickets.southernrailway.com/sn/en/JourneyPlanning/MixingDeck They have a lowest fare finder grid (lower left of the results screen). Over on the right is a 'Show help' button which includes helpful "bubble help" for the first time you use it too. Remember to click "other routes" to check if even lower fares for restricting to one particular route, or one particular company - eg a c£45 single on whoever from Milton Keynes to Portsmouth becomes as little as c£5 via Kensington Olympia & Southern only. There's a helpful guide over on MSE too at http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/travel/cheap-train-tickets MKD
