    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!

    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
    Titch :)
