20% OFF Train tickets to any NEC group venue @ Virgin Trains
Train tickets can be more expensive than flights, so a 20% can be helpful to some I hope. I came across this deal through an event I'm planning to attend at one of the NEC venues s… Read more
Mon99

It's a good deal no doubt BUT when I (a Disabled Railcard Holder) applied I was told that NO RAILCARD DISCOUNTS apply for any RAILCARD so it's a valuable offer for non-Railcard holders. Most such Railcards offer about ONE-THIRD off ,so IF you are planning to visit an NEC, use your Railcard if you have one. That said thanks o/p for the post which will be greatly appreciated by all.

Rudess

I put all relevant details from the deal. Nobody is checking if you have a ticket to event at NEC venue.

jmeegan1

I have used this for over two years - can't say anyone ever asked to see an event ticket, the virgin ticket simply says 'corporate discount'

Haircut_100

Perhaps in the title you may want to mention that the offer states that you need to have a valid ticket for an event at the NEC to claim this promotion.

£12.50 on the Virgin trains app, or at the station too.

abbi84uk

Cheapest i'm getting online is £19.50. The 'deal' or whatever anyone wants to call it, is there for people that DO want to go first class but didn't know it wasn't hundreds of pounds to do so

Nerchio1

First Class at weekend basically consists of a slightly larger seat, and that's about it. Clearly not worth the upgrade money

hodondo

Crewe to Manc [Virgin Only] Return is £12.50 standard. £38 for 1st isnt a deal ,when apart from the lounges at either end, you cant always guarantee any food or drinks onboard as it only takes 35 mins each way. On the return they quite often dish those out after Crewe. They stopped the breakfast service a couple years ago between the 2 stations, and you cant guarantee alcoholic drinks either from experience. They have also introduced free wifi in Standard recently which also removes some of the perks of First

Its free on LNER trains too. Until recently you got a code when you booked tickets on the LNER website. But now its free for everyone no matter where they bought their ticket ( no code needed).

The WiFi should be free anyway, especially when you're paying over the odds for a train ticket.

Increasing the loading gauge requires checking and rebuilding every bridge, tunnel, station, overhead gantry and other railway structure, plus re-laying the track further apart from neighbouring lines and redoing any electrification. Apart from some freight lines, it's never going to be done - no one would accept the cost or disruption involved.

cjabingham

Get the Europeans in to fix ours then;

terrestris

Not necessarily - advance tickets can be bought the day before, so the cost could be quite low. As for double decker trains, no UK railway line (except HS1) can accommodate them as our loading gauge is too small - you can blame the Victorians who built the railways for that.

terrestris

Indeed it does - but no UK government over the past 10-15 years has made that a priority. We've only once had a transport minister who was actually a fan of the railways in that time (Lord Adonis) - everyone else favours the car.

cjabingham

That would cost far more in the UK and be far less comfortable and less modern

Actually, Virgin have also been increasing their definition of 'peak' for years (only know of Euston departures). It used to be much later, whereas now it's around 3pm or even earlier.

Dealier

GWR don't run the Delay Repay scheme, as they're an older franchise that started before Delay Repay existed. So they're not as generous as most train companies, and they often won't pay anything, if the delay wasn't their fault. All newer franchises have Delay Repay schemes that pay after 15 or 30 minutes delay (usually 30), and it doesn't matter who is at fault for the delay.

teh.arn

Virgin Trains delay-repay is good. I got 100% refunded after an hours delay, a lot of train companies don't refund until you hit at least an hour. I put in a claim for Great Western for a 43min delay and it was rejected because it needed to be a minimum of an hour.

Dealier

Weekends are off peak anyway, so presumably you mean the other four days of the week. And delay repay is not about whether trains are cancelled, but how late you reach your destination. So if your Virgin train is cancelled but getting the next one means you're 20 minutes late, for example, you wouldn't get anything back. If your train isn't cancelled, but you're 30 minutes late, you're would get a partial refund. The minimum delay to get something back from London Northwestern is 15 minutes, but with Virgin, and most other companies, it's 30 minutes. If your train is cancelled and you decide not to travel, you should be able to get a full refund of an unused ticket from all train companies. But that's nothing to do with delay repay.

duncanb1973

like the other companies they charge a fortune, London to Manchester £89.90 return, or the best part of £360 for a family of four, it would cost under £40 in petrol in an average car. bargain

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

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

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!
