Thanks for the heads up

Agh I just went and spent £150 with virgin west coast!

So long as their not advanced tickets you can get a refund for a £10 admin charge

No i expect it to go mega stupid hot, it's 2 weeks before anybody knows what prices will be available and doubt anybody will get the £5 each return tickets.

No one will get £5 return tickets in this sale. The sale is for Advance single tickets.

There's usually a decent number of the cheapest tickets available - but don't wait until it's supposed to start, the cheap tickets often become available the day before the sale officially starts.

It's no good for 9th December, the first day of availability is 18th December.

If you want cheap tickets for the 9th you should probably have bought them by now. It might be worth looking at London Midland and Chiltern, they're usually cheaper than Virgin.

Does anyone know if this will be just London to Manchester, or will also include Manchester to London? Or is that a really stupid question?

Anyone with an o2 account/priority app. You can google some ways around it, using payg card.

Uhh you don't need o2 thing at all do you? Someone above posted the link last night, a pre-sale for 24 hours. I got a few Manchester>London trips for £11 each way

virgintrains.co.uk/sal…ity

The link was available to O2 priority customers, but anyone can use it as it does not require any proof of an O2 account

Sale appears to be Live now... Just booked a ticket to Edinburgh from Preston for £11rtn.

Just booked! Birmingham to Edinburgh for £22 return!

Does anyone know when the strike dates are? And if there is a strike can we use pre-booked tickets for the next day?

Many thanks.

Strike dates are rumoured to be nearer Christmas for maximum impact. I heard this second hand from one of their drivers who is a union rep, currently in the Caribbean (not joking either)

Original Poster

Strike dates announced for 15th and 22nd December and 5th, 8th, 26th and 29th January

They are here on Virgin Train's website and as expected, nearer Christmas and on a Friday and a Monday to give the strikers a nice long weekend.
