As far as I'm aware, after looking on the trainline website, I can't see an option for an NUS discount. So, I don't think so. =(
Haha, I didnt mean discount the trains that would be odd... trainline.com as far as I know sells coach tickets too. So was wondering if I could use in conjuction with the lower prices (i assume) found on trainline.com
Sorry for the late response. I don't believe NUS cards discount trains, the closest thing they can do for that is buy a 16-25 Railcard (1 year, not 3) for a SLIGHTLY discounted rate of 12% (knocks £3.60 off total price). EDIT: After looking, there are a FEW services which offer discounts like Crosscountry and TransPennine Express but that's all I managed to find.
probably a silly question but would this work buying the ticket from trainline.com?
It is cheaper than the train for me £25 for coach with a journey time of 10hrs 30m with two changes as apposed to 6 hrs and one change on train costing £50, I think I would still choose the train in my case. Hot if the journey is short.
