I have found the Wi-Fi to not be that good :/


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


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.


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.


Will go nicely with your overpriced cup of tea and wilted ham sandwich from on board 'catering'

Try NECTAR50 in the promo code, I got it through my Nectar Ap


Trainline LOL! Enjoy those extra charges! or the actual train operator is ALWAYS your best bet.


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?

IIRC nectar are also offering an extra 500pts on this deal - no use to me as I need virgin west coast instead (so doing via O2 offer) theres also another 500 pts being offered 'when you make your first booking with Virgin Trains East Coast'


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.

Thanks OP. Just booked a couple of 1st class tix to York for £78 return from Stevenage. Now to find a hotel for the night - might be a bit more than £78 though. Oh well, "she's worth it" lol.


Been looking at getting to London on December 18th....Comes up saying those dates aren't available yet, yet that date is in the time frame of using the tickets that can be purchased. Good deal if you can get it to help you.


cheaper than booking via trainline!! and nectar points too

Got myself a single from Kings Cross to Edinburgh for £12:50 on 17th Nov, now just to wait for a cheap flight or train back. National Express have got a single for £3 but don't fancy sitting on a coach for ten hours, might get a numb bum (cheeky)

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.


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!


Are you a new customer? Or first time registering with virgin red? It should be the second picture!


I believe it's for new customers only, should be a pic of a guy with a stuffed shark!

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!


I found 2 well timed trains M-F during the second week of Edinburgh festival @ 38.50 using a rail card, so well pleased. Remember, full catering not available on weekend services.

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.


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.


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. :(


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).


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.


Shame it's not weekend when I am travelling to London. Nice way to sell seats in the exceptionally hot weather when few people will want to sit on a train.


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)

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).


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.


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.


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.


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


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.


Yes this is a bargain/deal website, not a cheese fest.


A facile comment which underlines your thoughts.

How did I miss this? It was not well publicised in the papers or online at all...


I've just booked tickets...£15.50 return from London


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.


The Virgin West Coast sale is not much good to me either, neither is the Ryanair Manchester to Hamburg - good job everyone doesn't moan when a deal isn't good for them...:|


yes and petrol used to be 60p in 1997 too :)

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


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.


​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.


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


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?

I eventually got DON-NCL for £15.50 in and Kings Cross-Doncaster for £19.50, both in first. Used some Nectar points so cost me around £6 in cash. Going to fly cheaply from Newcastle to Heathrow. May take a couple of hours longer, but still saves a few £.

What sort of dates are you looking at to get these prices? I also want Dundee to London for that price haha :)
