Does anyone know of any promotions to get cheap rail tickets from Newcastle to Aberdeen return in August? Checked the trainline website - far too much!

    Use Martin's Cheap Train Tickets guide but as a first off:
    • Did you check for 2 singles rather than 1 return ticket? (https://www.qjump.co.uk actually suggests that on it's pricing page and helpfully splits the journey for you)
    • Were you flexible with your time of day?
    • Did you try splitting your journey, e.g., Newcastle to Edinburgh and Edinburgh to Aberdeen.
    • Check the local press in Scotland if you can because First ScotRail often offer promotions (would help from Edinburgh to Aberdeen), e.g., £15 return anywhere in Scotland (in conjunction with Sainsbury's, now finished).

    Should be able to do it for under £40, possibly £23 return but as suggested above book it as 2 singles rather than a return, Try HERE for a range of fares available on your chosen dates.

    Errr...

    I think Daveyok has probably completed his journey or given up on the idea.

    The original post is dated 2004 :rolleyes:

    Thanks Printedinuk for bringing it to our attention though. :confused:

    Hmm... Believe it or not this is in fact the second time that I have done this in as many days (answering ANCIENT posts...)! Perhaps I should improve my observation skills?! Mind you, Aberdeen is nice (OK, I live there) so perhaps he might want to visit again?
