Train operator Northern is offering up five million bargain price tickets as part of its flash sale this January. The discounted tickets, which are available now on a first come first served basis, can be booked online or through the Northern app.
The discounted fares are available for journeys across the north of England and travel must be between January 10 and March 1, 2024 on Northern services only. The flash sale runs from today (January 3) and closes at 4pm on Friday (January 5).
Bargain tickets are available for journeys from Manchester Piccadilly and Manchester Victoria, offering train trips from £1 to Northern towns and cities stretching from the Lakes to the Peaks. Better still, you can make even bigger savings a the rail company is offering half price children’s tickets available for 50p (and under 5s are free).
Some of the journeys included in the ‘Flash Sale’ are trains from Manchester Piccadilly to the likes of Buxton, Chester, Crewe, Hadfield, Manchester Airport, Sheffield, Stoke-on-Trent and Wilmslow. Plus, from Manchester Victoria you can travel to Blackburn, Chester, Clitheroe, Leeds, Southport, Wigan North Western and Windermere from just £1.
Mark Powles, commercial and customer director at Northern, said: “The ‘Flash Sale’ extends to every corner of our network, with £1 tickets up for grabs for both local and longer, cross-country journeys.
“We hope the ‘Flash Sale’ will inspire people to get out and about across the region, for those moments that matter most – days out with the family, catch-ups with friends or for no reason other than to enjoy the beautiful countryside and coastlines our region has to offer.
“As always, customers should book early to avoid disappointment. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.”
There are five million £1 tickets up for grabs with this flash sale from Northern. Tickets are available now, but all travel must take place between January 10 and March 1, 2024.
All flash sale tickets must be booked seven days in advance of travel and are available online, via Northern’s app and website, which now features a new ‘Cheap Fare Finder’ tool. You can find more information about the Northern flash sale here.
