Well I didn't mean it to be taken literally (flirt)

AshleyAlexanderWatson

Not necessarily true. If you know when you're going, you can get a 1st class ticket from Edinburgh to London for £40. Also some of the rail discount cards will give you good deals.

ciare32

I think it does, wifi worked fine for me when I travelled in first class, but when I'm in standard the wifi sometimes won't even work for me until about half an hour out of Euston, and even then keeps cutting out.

It is. From the first post: "3. 50% discount can only be used by the recipient of this email using their registered Virgin Trains East Coast email address "

This doesn't work-think it's specific to the recipient of the email

Trainline is NEVER cheaper than buying directly from the train operator. Unless you're buying on their app they're always more expensive due to their fees. Which journeys were you looking at?

humanracer

what does this mean exactly Stagecoach and Virgin are working in partnership to operate the East Coast and West Coast inter-city routes under the Virgin Trains brand. Together, they are on track to revolutionise rail travel across the UK. The combined network connects some of the nation’s most iconic destinations including Glasgow, Liverpool, Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Leeds, York and London.

Is this still working, tempted to sign up on my wife's phone and use it again. I managed to book 2 one way tickets, anyone get anymore? My commute to work is in peak so could only use it on my return home journey.

Thank you, just saved £20! There's a separate section for 20% off on East Coast, it has a photo of train seats. App crashed repeatedly although on wifi but persisted and booked ok.

adam_1001

Just used this! Thank you! Saved me £30+ on train fares. It's for new customers it seems. Had to register on the app, hit the 20% off trains jobber then it takes you onwards to a pin / link to book via the app (couldnt seem to do it online) Make sure your mobile network or wifi is steady though, it was painful in places but due to my connectivity!

Similar has happened to in the past on Virgin West Coast (minus bananas and plastic cups). I complained. I got rail vouchers for the amount I spent (wasn't going to quibble about this given how often I use trains), plus a free return first class journey anywhere on the network.

Did 1st Class last week Manchester - London. Abysmal service. Lounge was shut in Manchester, train hadn't been cleaned, two toilets working on the whole train and it stank of ****. Food going down was a banana and a cup of tea in a plastic cup. save your money!

Booked outbound standard and return 1st class as standard sold out. £55 return between London and Edinburgh for a weekend travel still a bargain! voted hot.

humanracer

It makes sense for Virgin to do this. People wanting to travel last minute are likely to fly so it's good for Virgin to offer cheap fares for seats they likely won't sell.

macadee

Its surprising how disappointing it is to read into the deal and find its *just* train fares and not train fares with free hot cakes included. :(

xenole

From last week, myself and someone else mentioned they couldn't use vouchers redeemed from Nectar points against these promo fares. The one way around this is to add a normal fare of £5-£6+ (need to check the exact amount) ad then you can use vouchers. Fine if you've loads of vouchers but not if you've only say £10 as you'll only get £3-£4 value unless you actually will use the VTEC ticket. Also works with Transpennine Express tickets etc (previously paid £35 or so from Manchester Airport to Cleethorpes and added a random £6.50 VTEC ticket and offset the entire cost with vouchers).

Realhoneyman

I agree that what Virgin Care is doing to the NHS isn't welcome (suing the NHS is just fundamentally wrong). Can me a sucker for a good deal here though. This is the same price I pay to go from Wakefield to Leeds return twice (often via Virgin Trains as those are the express ones that pass through the station). Sorry if I sound like a hypocrite but I don't support or easily accept the actions of Branson for capitalising on a nationally-funded service.

Breakfast was pretty much yoghurt, fruit, pain au chocolat or a muffin as said in the menu link above. Thought they might of had something simple and hot like a bacon bun but no. Came round 4 times I think between Doncaster and Kings Cross.

Really useful deal for those wanting a day trip on the east coast line this weekend, many thanks for posting.

re "Weekend" First Class, recognise it's a slimmed down offering versus weekday - eg no free booze (and similarly watch out for cut-down on bank holidays too) https://www.virgintrainseastcoast.com/the-east-coast-experience/first-class/menu/this-week/?mq=menu4#menu4

Shame, I was going to use it for when Leeds Utd get to the play off final but it's not available then: Travel is from 18 April to 30 June 2017 (inclusive), excluding 27-30 April, 1 May and 25-29 May 2017 (inclusive).

bargaindeals

You missed out Retford from your list of stopping points and there are fewer than 4 Leeds service trains a day that stop at Newark but then all of this is irrelevant to the original subject matter.

Dealier

There are Advance tickets, and the conditions for these tickets state you must make the journey you've booked, on the train you've booked. There are ticket barriers at Newark, so your ticket wouldn't get you in or out of the station, and you could be asked to pay the full anytime fare. Train companies generally now let people off if they get off a stop early if they're not doing it to save money, but that obviously wouldn't be the case if you're using a Leeds special offer ticket from Newark.

snow18

Comment The Leeds to London route do stop at Newark. Maybe not every train, but the route usually goes like this: Leeds, Wakefield, Doncaster, Newark, Grantham, Peterborough, stevenage, London.

bargaindeals

If you're trying to be funny you should make it clear. Unlike your post, I tried to make my remarks very much tongue in cheek. Actually I find Yorkshire folk very friendly, maybe because they welcome the input of my English Pounds into their economy or perhaps the women who find it refreshing to meet a male who treats them like ladies and are not 'tight wads' I'm not aware that it's a requirement to post a deal to visit this site. For your information I visit this site to find out what others have found and for others to make sensible comments upon. Unfortunately I have to suffer postings from people like you who think it clever to make inept remarks.

​That is still not trolling, trolling has nothing to do with opinion. If someone disagrees and is rude about it, they are just rude. Realistically this is just feel good fodder for everyone and or a marketing ploy for the company, and also a karma grab for OP. Let change our avatars whilst were at it to something related, may just fix some of this ****......

Try being a robocop - the treatment that guy received was appalling. <3

citibadger

It's just our rather sad society today who will put distasteful and ignorant comments about this. Virgin want to do it for the Police and good for them. Maybe it'll spur the other train companies to do the same. Not just for Police but others who die serving their country in different jobs. Shouldn't we be united? There are good and bad Police officers, Army, Paramedics etc etc. By all accounts this bobby was one of the better ones, so let's support him and his family for his (ultimate) sacrifice. Just let it go and say thanks Virgin.

Wow, didn't expect those responses :( I only meant why would virgin hold an east coast sale but only from one station, it doesn't make sense to me. Although I am pleased some people are able to benefit from it, if not me and hope they decide to hold a proper sale sometime soon.

I get you. I assumed offer was just for those routes listed. ;)

fabsaver

I think you've misunderstood. If they run the sale again on their East Coast route then the destinations can't change. They operate fixed routes on train tracks! Maybe there is some confusion over those example routes shown above? They are just examples and not the only journey options available. This sale applied across the entire East Coast route - you just had to click get deal and find out the price for your specific journey if not listed above.

sgandtg

​Think you've misunderstood the comment. He/she means the weekly offer will be for different destinations, not that your actual booking will suddenly change.

scunny

What dates? because I'm thinking of going to see her too (_;)

UncleWilly

Why would the destinations change? Virgin East Coast run a specific route, they don't suddenly decide to run trains in a completely different part of the country from one week to the next. Why not check the map below before you start making stupid comments? https://www.virgintrainseastcoast.com/contentassets/862bef31fd25452e9687874eb55576b5/vtec-route-map-2015-dl.pdf
