Virgin Trains is slashing the price of a million of its cheapest tickets this Spring starting on 6th April through to 19th May.

The entire Virgin Value range will be reduced by around one-third including our lowest fares for bookings made 14 or more days before travel as well as tickets booked at least 7 or 3 days before travel. Free seat reservations are automatically included with each ticket and Railcard holders receive a further one-third reduction on the reduced price.

Examples of the reductions are:

Journey Normal Virgin Value Price Reduced Price Price With Railcard
Manchester to London £20.00 £13.00 £8.60
Birmingham To London £15.00 £10.00 £6.50
Liverpool to London £20.00 £13.00 £8.60
Preston to London £25.00 £16.50 £10.90
Glasgow to London £29.00 £19.00 £12.55
Birmingham to Manchester £10.00 £6.50 £4.30
Birmingham to Edinburgh £29.00 £19.00 £12.55
Birmingham to Newcastle £25.00 £16.50 £10.90
Birmingham to Glasgow £45.00 £29.50 £19.45
Reading to Manchester £20.00 £13.00 £8.60

Mark Furlong, Executive Commercial Director for Virgin Trains, said today: “Following the success of our recent half price offer when passenger levels on Virgin Trains were restored to pre-Hatfield levels we feel its right to continue the momentum by running another very attractive promotion. With the train service getting back to normal I’m sure many customers particularly those with Railcards will want to take advantage of these ridiculously cheap fares.”

The cut-price tickets can be purchased in person from stations and travel agents, from the Internet on virgin.com/trains or by telephoning 08457 222 333.
