Default Cheap rail travel?

Does anyone know of how to get cheaper rail tickets (than advertised on trainline etc). Any promotions on at the moment I haven't heard about? I need to get from Newcastle to Aberdeen in August but don't fancy driving and the only flights seem to be BA (120+).

Thanks :P

I got on the old 'dog and phone' and spoke directly to GNER; result - 28 return. It just shows that the net is not always cheapest!

Default Cheap Train Travel?

I am looking to travel from London to Newcastle in september. I saw they were advertising 20 return but now the best price they have available is 60. Does anyone know of any promo codes, or ways to get cheaper fares?

I regularly travel from Birmingham to Newcastle and use qjump to purchase tickets.

Use the site to try several dates and times - you can get better deals if you travel off-peak.

Hello, I have booked the cheap fares and the times seem to be : the 11.30am from Kings Cross, then the 10.00pm from Kings Cross and the 18.22 from Durham to Kings Cross, I have successfully booked at 20.00 pounds per person (actually somebody published a pound off voucher code on here, but it expired 31st July) - hope this helps

Default Free rail travel vouchers (to and from london)

theres a thread in the grab it while u can forum, detailing the free rail travel vouchers that were published in the evening standard, earlier in the week:
http://forum.moneysavingexpert.com/c...num=1091526720

from info in that thread it seems that its ok to print out downloaded versions of the vouchers, so no need to worry if u missed out on buying a copy of the standard

Afternoon all,

Just on the off chance, does anyone have any train ticket codes for Virgin or "thetrainline" ?

Why would I want to go to Blackburn on News years day? :

We are playing Villa AWAY - hence the ticket purchase to be made from Watford to Brum....

But thanks anyway
