Any Virgin Train codes please ?

We are travelling from Rugby to London the 29th May, using the first Virgin train out, and need an open return for the same day.
I am trying to find any way of reducing the £168 cost of 4 adult tickets. Typical, that our child has just turned 16 we so cant use the Family & Friends anymore.


I have tried Google but cant seem to get any codes or offers.


Really appreciate any help. Thank you.

    There aren't any discount codes for any train tickets.

    The options are: double up your Tesco Clubcard vouchers at Red Spotted Hanky (note £1 booking fee).

    Or, travel with London Midland. An off peak return is £28.00 per adult. They also offer GroupSave: one third off when 3 to 9 people travel together.

    If you bought your F&F railcard before the child turned 16, you are allowed to use it with that child until it expires or the day before they turn 17, whichever is sooner.

    Another option (if you can), is to travel from Kettering or Northampton, where there are earlier, cheaper services which include a 1 day travelcard.

    The Public Transport Forum might be a better place to ask - I know people do take trains for leisure purposes but it really falls outside of "Going Out"!

    Have you explored any split ticketing options? Again, that is well discussed/explained in a Sticky there. :)

    Ahhh - because I was so focused on my horrible Anxiety and worrying about travelling, I never got round quick enough to buying a ticket . Bangs head on table and cries...


    I have now reduced the cost by going for a specific train back, and using the Virgin Group booking. At least that gives us a the ability to reserve a specific table for the return journey.
