    Buying a standard 'saver' ticket for an adult and two children would cost £124.40. However, if you hold a Family Railcard (£20) and buy your tickets at www.thetrainline.co.uk using the promotion code "NOMOREDIY" your tickets would cost £61.65 together.

    I want to travel Cardiff to London, by first class if possible, on 28th July returning the next day. There are three adults and one child (14). We have a junior railcard between us, if that helps.

    Are there any deals at all?

    I used the Daily Mail offer last time - great value

    Hi Folks,

    I wonder if anyone can help me. I regularly travel on business by train between Bristol Parkway and London (Paddington.) First Great Western is the sole operator on this route. Nine times out of ten I have to catch trains during 'Peak Time' (7:30am to 9:30am) and pay the 'Standard Open Return' fare of 112.

    My question is: does anyone know of how I can save any money on this route? I use www.thetrainline.com to book my tickets as far in advance of my journey as possible but there are very rarely any discounts for Peak Time travel. For example, today I looked for a ticket for travel during August but there are no discounts during the time I have to travel. I use the Discount Code 'NOMOREDIY' to save myself a few but no amount of any significance. First Great Western provide no discounts in terms of Railcards, etc.

    Any info/advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    No other codes but for three adults and a child for those dates with a family railcard is £66, when you are buying 2 singles.

    Would it be worth your getting a season ticket?

    The only other thing that I can think of is that National Express Coaches do a very frequent service to central London that is bookable and very much cheaper than the train - can be as low as 5 each way, depending on availability.

    There are 1st class Apex tickets available for those journeys (leave 9 ish return next day 5 ish)

    The First Great Western site has offers for things to do when you get to London but I haven't been able to find any special deals for the journey itself. Sorry!

    Have a read of the second paragraph 'Exeter Central to London' on:

    http://images.thetimes.co.uk/TGD/picture/0,,168556,00.gif

    (You have to enlarge the image to 150% or 200%)

    and see if it is relevant to you.

    Thanks guys, I wish the Daily Mail offer would come back!

    Have tried this on a journey from Southampton to London. Does it only work with railcards?

    by alchemista
    How strange! They have sent me the code JUNE3OFF that only gives 3 pounds off, and it also expires on 5th July. It just about covers their credit card booking fee.
  • alchemista
    For the 5 off 20 you have to have each ticket be 20 pounds, not your total I'm trying to book 2x £12 tickets and was hoping to get £5 off, but it won't discount anything.
