Train ticket deals and offers

Save on fares and railcards.

Ticket discounts

Some regular offers will get you money off your train ticket, and I’ll share the best here.

LNER: £5 credit

Sign up to LNER’s Perks scheme and you’ll get £5 credit. You can use this for bookings made on the app. You’ll also be able to earn 2% credit back on bookings.

Ticket sales

Flash sales and offers run throughout the year on different rail networks here in the UK and sometimes overseas too. I’ll list the best ones below.

Eurostar: £78 returns

You can book return fares from London to Paris, Brussels, Lille or Rotterdam for £39 each way, making a return possible for just £78. Travel is from 6 September until 14 December 2022. Limited availability at weekends and there are some excluded dates. While reduced fares last.

Railcard offers

Rail cards are valid for 12 months and should save you a third on most fares if you fit the criteria. You’ll also soon be able to have a digital version of your card on your phone. Most will cost you £30.

Railcards include:

  • Friends & Family Railcard
  • 16-17 Saver (from 20th August)
  • 18-25 Railcard
  • 26-30 Railcard
  • NetworkRailcard (South East trains only)
  • Disabled Persons Railcard
  • Senior Railcard
  • Two Together Railcard

Offers to save more run regularly through the year, and I’ll update here if I spot any.

Trainline: 33% off digital railcards

Trainline is offering 33% off digital railcards while stocks last. You need to enter the code SUMMER33 at checkout. Ends 31 August or when 400,000 railcards have been sold.

Tesco Clubcard: Two-thirds off railcards

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.
