Hi,
I am unsure where to post this, as it might be a normal price or a bug (I don't take the train much)
National Express East Coast currently sells train tickets from london - brighton for this summer are at £3 each way.
What is weird is that the nationalrail website price them at £5, but that none of the 14 other train operators has these tickets at £5 (their cheapest is £13 or so).

It might be the same for other south-east or national destinations, but I don't have the time to try. If you try, give us feedback ;-)

So, if like me you're planning a couple of days in Brighton this summer, enjoy!

edit 1: be sure to select 'London Victoria' not 'London (all)'

edit2: also works for Portsmouth and other stations in the south east. Thanks pompeyrich for testing!

Rep added

Excellent spot. Heat & rep, etc

That is an excellent find.

I have been using the advanced booking fares at £10 return.

Which dates are you using? Can't seem to find any for £3!

I'm getting minimum £21 for each way for 19th July, is there anything I'm missing ? :?

click on the Lowest Fares box (bottom left column) when you are on the same webpage as your possible times/schedule.

i am getting £3 if you click the singles from "£3-£19"

Young persons rail card saves me £16 per week on standard peek tickets from July 1st to 31st August every year for only £20 membership.

:!: BEWARE :!: It is still working, but you have to type 'London Victoria' as your departure point. It does not seems to work with 'London (All)'. Do NOT ask me why

Thats what I was missing, was using "London All", Cheers :thumbsup:

Great spot, £3 tickets also available to/from Portsmouth, and other stations in that area, if you choose London Victoria, rather than London (All).

I choose the 'send by royal mail at your place' option. ;-)
I used the machines once, it worked fine, but I am always afraid that something will go wrong and that it won't give me my tickets. I don't want to miss a train because of a silly machine...

it's the ones that have FastTicket on them, self service and bring your printout/codes (just in case you need to refer to at the counter) .. and the credit card u used to purchase the tickets.

voted Hot!
Unfortunately, the forecast doesn't look v.good for a weekend at the beach
Save a further 30p!!!! per booking via Quidco or Cashback King.

i tried the quidco link but it only seems to work for buses not trains. not sure why, i did two purchases and usually it tracks asap, but it hasn't ... and come to think of it, neither have i gotten the email confirmation -- has anyone gotten theirs yet?

You could go to Brighton for £3 then catch train to Eastbourne from there (not sure of cost).

need to make a few decisions first, don't you? what you're asking is too broad / vague

This is because another company runs from London Bridge to Brighton - so the computer will only look for tickets that can be used with both companies. National Express East Coast are selling Southern Railway tickets for £3 fare... for some reason.

Any cheap deals on Spinnaker Tower entry? or any pointers to what to see near portsmouth harbour?

thanks
