Get in the zone for great value train travel
Train operator National Express East Coast is launching a new bargain fare promotion offering customers one-way travel from as little as £6 following the success of a similar deal earlier this year.
Starting from this Thursday (15 October), the East Coast route from London to Inverness has been split into four zones – with bargain fares set by how many zones a customer travels through.
Examples of some of the great value, low-cost one-way fares include:
London to Peterborough – from £6
York to Edinburgh – from £9
Darlington, Durham or Newcastle to London – from £12
Edinburgh to London – from £15
The low price fares can be booked over the next five days between Thursday 15 October and Monday 19 October, for travel between Monday 2 November and Thursday 17 December.
Customers can take advantage of the reduced Standard Advance fares by booking online at www.nationalexpresseastcoast.com/zones. They should download and print a voucher from this special web page, which must be presented on the train to validate their travel tickets.
National Express East Coast sales and marketing director Rachel Dawson said: “Due to the success of our first zone fare promotion we have reintroduced the offer for customers to benefit from the excellent value for money, low-cost fares.
“The promotion provides an opportunity for customers to experience the many great destinations on the East Coast main line, where they can enjoy short city breaks, do their Christmas shopping somewhere different or enjoy a spot of sightseeing.
“As we expect there to be high demand for the low fares, we encourage customers to book early by logging onto www.nationalexpresseastcoast.com/zones to get the best deal.”
Full details of the offer will be sent by email to those who have registered online and will also be available on www.nationalexpresseastcoast.com/zones.
