Yeah...but still very pricey for something that is already expensive.


Shouldn't have to do that,we in the UK have the most expensive rail network/fares in Europe :{


Fly or split your ticket, it'll be a fraction of that


Exactly, first class people tend to subsidise the service too or it'd be even more expensive!


Hey I wonder if these tickets come with a seat? I’m my experience they don’t

Thanks OP. Family ticket to Edinburgh from Wigan all booked. Extra £30 for 4 people than standard cattle, but better seats and I really like their breakfasts.


Virgin trains are the only ones with sale prices. Please see my post two above yours.


Poor sale. Trains from Bham to Euston appear to be the slower train and not on the Virgin trains.


Yes, I'm always on the Rynairs from London to Brum LOL


There are some Virgin first class £17 fares. It's just coincidence that West Midlands Trains charge the same price for some of their first class advance tickets. For example, Virgin first class £17 fares are available from Birmingham New Street to Euston on 22/8 at 10:30, 10:50, 11:30, 12:10, 12:50...etc

Nothing free with Virgin


Have made 3 return trips to London in 18 months. WiFi worked on 1/6 train journeys (poo)


With East Coast/LNER you receive your Wi-Fi registration code in the confirmation email when booking online, I'd imagine this will end up the same. Just enter your code after registering at the splash page when you first connect. Decent Wi-Fi service, no streaming allowed though :( Tried to stream the England v. Sweden match through BBC iPlayer but it periodically drops your traffic, every 10secs or so. Can't complain though if it's free!


The app doesn’t work though? Look at all the reviews for it!

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)


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.

Beware. I tried to take advantage of a similar offer before. I was very careful to make sure that I met all the conditions and, surprise surprise, no nectar points were given.

Train pricing is disgusting in general, its beyond retarded that its cheaper to fly to a different country than to go a couple of hundred miles on a train.


I looked in to getting an annual bus pass to get to work, in order to weigh up options. I quickly dismissed the idea when I saw that it would easily cost more than the petrol alone, and my car isn't particularly frugal either. Add to that the advantages of not having to wait, put up with drunks and chavs and people playing carp music on their crappy phone speaker, being able to sling your coat and bag on the back seat without worrying someone will nick it etc. As I already pay MOT, Tax, etc etc it just doesn't make any sense. Privatisation has just led to rampant profiteering. The contracts are coming up for renewal and that's why May is eager to dispense of the fares freeze, so they are more eager to renew their contracts - as a couple of operators have just walked out on, or threatened to walk out on, contracts lately.


Of course, with VED, servicing, replacement parts, depreciation, MOT, insurance and breakdown cover, all of that equates to less than 10p per mile, with fuel around 8p a mile, so 18p a mile, total of £81 for the journey. However I am already paying for the VED, MOT, breakdown cover and the majority of the insurance whether I drive 100 miles or 20000 miles, so that 18p a mile is a little inflated. Taking a train under normal costs would have cost me in excess of £90, not to mention I don't live next to a train station nor is my destination next to one, so taxi or bus fares have to be calculated into that too. Oh and one final mention, I travelled on my own, that journey could have been completed with a full car, with only minimal increases in fuel usage, costing £22.50 a person.


Because fuel costs are just a small part of the cost of running a car - everybody forgets all the other costs, and they're not all fixed costs either. :|


+1! I drove from Leeds to London, spent an hour driving around in London at rush hour, went home and only spent around £40 in fuel. How is a train more expensive than a car!? Not to mention the comfort, I had lumbar support, legs fully stretched out, AC kept me nice and cool, surround sound music, snacks and drinks were really cheap, not to mention I could stop when I wanted. All I had to do was wiggle the wheel a little!

Dear all I've booked the tickets from London Euston to Birmingham New Street for our family of 4 and decided to stay over one night. Could someone please recommended some good deal on hotel for 1 night stay nearby as it was no point coming back the same day on this deal due to the timings and prices which would make this trip very short and tiring. I would really appreciate if someone could pls recommend a good cheap deal of hotel nearby and any other tips of what to do there once I reach BHX in the afternoon. Do they accept Oyster card in Birmingham or how to travel and see the city or sightseeing pls ? Thanks in advance


You're getting confused - the tickets you're referring to are standard advance tickets rather than a sale, and are often available on off peak trains at times when most people are unlikely to want to travel. The actual Virgin Trains sale doesn't start till Thursday 9 March.

Polite response Batezy I give you that. But what I wrote stands entirely accurate in the zero detail given until people questioned it, particularly given Virgin themselves state a show ticket is required, as do TM terms and conditions. That's why I believe it's an offer just for those who receive the offer email or bought a show ticket previously. Constructive suggestion: why not re-email TM: all you need to ask is can anyone use the 25% discount link, without having a show ticket at their destination? And until when (that screenshot says it ran for three months)? And to MrMini- of course he's had pushback, as mentioned Virgin and TM terms contradict what he's said, which is no joke when you risk your ticket being invalid! That's why this needed carefully checking before posting. I had to get a show ticket and another guy had to change his ticket after the offer was first posted and assurances were made no show ticket was required. Noone is going to use this deal if they don't have faith they won't get fined on the train. If the OP really wants to be helpful, he could resolve this very easily.


Don't be put off posting them batezy - this was a good deal particularly with the legwork you've put in to support it (emails etc.) which I would've showed to the inspector had they asked


Oh and I did check. You can see it above. Btw thanks for all of your contributions to the site.


Pete thanks for the theory but really you are wrong. I'm on the mailing list and that is about as cryptic as it gets. Can't believe the amount of rubbish I have got for posting a deal. It's real. The evidence is above. Can't really do anymore. You either use it or you don't.


Here's what I think is going on here. The OP receives a personal to him offer from ticketmaster for 25% off Virgin fares, but with no show ticket needed. Probably due to having bought tickets from TM before or being on their mailing list. TM have an offer for anyone at the moment allowing 25% off fares, to a Virgin destination provided you are going to a show at one of TM/NEC group venues/bought your ticket from TM. But the OP's offer doesn't require a show ticket. The OP shares his discount weblink here, without mentioning TM nor explaining where the offer comes from and puts up his offer screenshot. But it's only legitimately usable by him. Two people, including myself, at posts 17 and 18 query the deal, the OP doesn't answer the questions but just posts TM's email to him where they confirm HE can use it for any journey without a show ticket. Clearly noone else can use it! Why would Virgin and TM run a deal allowing anyone to get 25% off Virgin fares for no reason! This thread really should be closed. It could have been avoided if the OP had checked properly before posting and once people started to get confused and query it. Virgin have said you need a show ticket (ie everyone else), which is what I then did to cover myself. If you don't have one nor the offer email to you from TM, worst case is you end up having to buy a completely new ticket at on board fares!

It's like using a Edinburgh to Glasgow ticket to go from Birmingham to London. Yes, you're travelling with a ticket, but you'll be prosecuted as if you didn't have a ticket.
