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

website not working

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

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!

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.

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.

mymymy5 h, 1 m ago

I was looking for cakes! T_T



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).

considering virgin are buying up large amounts of your nhs down in … considering virgin are buying up large amounts of your nhs down in England you should start thinking about spending your money elsewhere and avoid giving sir Richard any more money seeing as he's helping dismantle your nhs



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.

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.

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.

I wasn't talking about the cold voting, I was talking about the general miserable and rude attitude a lot of people express. A lot of it aimed at other people who have done nothing wrong.You can have a differing opinion to someone else, but you can have the decency to be polite about it. There are some repeat offenders too, sometimes to the point where you think there might actually be something wrong with them. You have to consider if the community would be better off without them, or even better if HUKD would implement disliking/downvoting comments.



​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.

Have you tried being a cop?



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

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.

He won't be the first or the last Police Officer, servicewoman or serviceman or adult or child that went out to one day and didn't come back. Their families can never say goodbye and this isn't a competition as to who has it the hardest, so let's be respectful and remember what this site is for.

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.

June 3rd is a Saturday. Advance tickets for weekends aren't released until later, because engineering work is scheduled for weekends, and they need to know what's planned before releasing advance tickets. The original post does say weekends aren't included.
The fares you'll be able to see will be the standard walk up fares that will be available from the station on the day.

Can't have GNER 2.0 ;)It's against the current Government's religion to either have the line 'state' run (even though it was quite successful after the GNER collapse, making a £1bn profit,) or invest in the Railways in general, which they don't at all after the fare pot and franchise payments. In fact they make a net gain to the exchequer, for the whole system.

As above, DfT set up train leasing companies in 1994, these companies make MUCH more money than the train operating companies...we pay more in fares and tax for rail privatisation, its a joke. I can have a holiday in Europe sun for a week cheaper than the full price of a Scotland-London return.

Why should I know or care about every detail of their business plan? All I know the fares on the trips I make will have gone up by 22% in under 3 years, making them some of the most expensive fares in Europe.

Just 2 years after taking over the franchise fares have already gone up 15% on the east coast routes. I don't have any printable words to describe this company. Presumably they think they can dupe people and salvage some of their reputation by tossing out a few special offers like this every so often. Cynical beyond belief.
