Transpennine Express App - Made in India - lol

The only problem with this deal is that their new app is the worst train app out their. And they did a beta app test before it came out and still came out with it even though the results they got were to keep to the old version...

its an absolutely incredible deal, half price even for railcard holders, so 67% off for railcard e.g. Manchester to york first class £5.60. its actually for everyone not just existing customers, as long as code NEWAPP is used. perhaps change title , OP? Thanks

Cold. Their special offer fares should be available through their website not some crappy little app.

Their after sales is a pain, buy only if you are sure you won't ever need to contact them.

Thanks OP. You can't get the normal extra 16-25 railcard discount on top. So for standard class advances with 16-25 railcard, it's the same price. Where it does win, however is on first class advances with 16-25 as normally you can't get extra discount on those.

The TPE and gov.uk both seem to imply it's available nationwide to any age.https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/support-to-help-with-the-cost-of-transport/support-to-help-with-the-cost-of-transport


It was available nationwide, then cut-back to London only. London has a much bigger transport budget (x3 per capita) than anywhere else in the UK.

You also get 4.5% topcashback and nectar points. Always worth checking the northern fares too as said above.

anything else job seekers want for nowt?

If I remember rightly. In order to receive a 'Jobcentre plus' railcard you must live within London and be under 24.
It's not available anywhere else in the UK for unemployed people. Very limited terms.

I think there's some confusion. The link for the offer for 25% off Advance TPE tix bought in next day for specific dates:
http://www.tpexpress.co.uk/special-offers/48-hour-flash-sale/

"The 25% discount applies to TransPennine Express Advance Purchase tickets bought between 12:00 Tuesday 3rd May and 12:00 Thursday 5th May 2016.
Tickets must be for travel between Wednesday 4th May and Saturday 23rd July 2016,
Bank holidays not included and must be purchased through the website link tpexpress.co.uk/flashsale.
Discount is only available on tickets routed TPE Only and TPE & Connections, not valid on any other types of tickets.
Not available on bank holiday date 30th May"

Can confirm it works as already bought Middlesbrough-York tix with 25% off
TPE tickets can be self-printed as A4 size National Rail tickets too for extra convenience for those with a printer handy!

Just tried again and exact same price as trainline £15.20



This offer (as is usually the case with train ticket offers) is only available on Advance fares. There are never any Advance fares available for Scunthorpe to Sheffield tickets, so you won't find any tickets cheaper than the off peak day return.

You can see all ticket types available for Scunthorpe to Sheffield here: brfares.com/!fares?orig=SCU&dest=SHF

The only tickets available are ones you can buy at the station on the day you travel. So there's no advantage buying in advance unless you want cashback or nectar points, which you can get from the Transpennine website.


You should never buy tickets from Trainline. They're ALWAYS more expensive than buying direct from the train company because of the fees they add on. They don't have access to any cheaper fares than the train companies so they're just a rip off, using their misleading adverts to con people into paying more than they have to.

Will have a llok at this

NB: you MUST buy the tickets on their website by Sunday 10/4 and they say "tickets are limited" though whether thats the normal Advance allocation limit, or an extra 50% off limit isn't clear!

"The 50% discount applies to TransPennine Express Advance Purchase tickets only, bought between Monday 4th April and Sunday 10th April 2016 and must be purchased through the website link tpexpress.co.uk/hal…fer

Here's a link to their website's TPE Network map to help you spot opportunities for " TPE Only and TPE & Connections" routes that this Advance tickets offer applies to.

http://www.tpexpress.co.uk/mediafile/100104134/tpenetworkmap_geo_may2014.pdf

In their journey planner the applicable (long-distance) Advance fares appear with a red asterisk
and "*promotional discount"
eg £8.25 from Manchester Picadilly to Glasgow Central (bi-hourly service)
from £10.85 from Liverpool Lime Street to Newcastle-upon-Tyne (hourly service)

When looking on their site for clues as to routes with Advance tickets, also found they have GENEROUS TERMS for advances from their Airports...
"The Airport Advance has replaced the Airport Getaway ticket. It is a single fare train ticket with the same terms and conditions as Advance tickets. Although the ticket is train specific, as a concession, journeys starting at Manchester Airport and Liverpool John Lennon Airport can be made up to 3hrs after the specified departure time, or on the next available TransPennine Express service, if proof of a delayed flight can be produced. This is the only difference to other Advance tickets. Should your flight be delayed, please ensure that you obtain documentation from your airline that this is the case."
Checked and the 50% discount offer DOES get applied to "Airport Advance" tickets too!
[Wish Virgin West Coast did that with Birmingham International fares!]

What I did last time I landed at Birmingham International was have a Virgin Advance valid for about 1hr20m after the plane was DUE to land. Actually landed about 20 minutes early so I was on the platform in time for the hourly train before and was able to ask the train manager if it was OKay for me to get on his earlier train and he said 'get on' and when he came round checking tickets said it was really good to be asked (worst he could have said is NO = where I was already)!

Take the ticket back to the place of purchase if its local to you, or call them up. Explain what happened and you should get a refund, but it has to be within 28 days I think.
