Northern flash sale – one way for 10p
From Monday 19th August until fares run out you can get 10p single tickets on selected Northern Rail routes in September. I’ve picked up a return to visit my mate in Sheffield for 20p, and he’s also booked a family day out to Lincoln for 40p.
There are 80,000 tickets available, so when they are gone they are gone, and not every route is included, for example Harrogate to Leeds is full price. But I could get an onward journey to loads of places for 10p, including Manchester and Blackpool.

Or, even better, you can get any railcard for a third of the price if you have Tesco Clubcard points. You need £10 worth of points to get this or any other railcard in full, though you can part pay with vouchers.
