Train operator Northern is offering up more than a million bargain price tickets as part of its flash sale. 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 Tuesday 6 September and Thursday 20 October 2022. For services starting in Nottingham and the Wirral, the last day of travel is Thursday 13 October.
Bargain tickets are available for journeys from Manchester Piccadilly, Manchester Oxford Road and Manchester Victoria, offering trips to Blackpool, Liverpool, Leeds and more. Children will also be able to travel for even cheaper at just 50p, with those under five able to travel for free.
Mark Powles, customer and commercial director at Northern, said: “This is our way of helping to extend the summer holiday feeling by a further six weeks – getting people through until the start of the October half term. Whether it’s for a weekend in the historic city of Chester, a night out in Newcastle; a day at the seaside in Scarborough or a walking holiday in the Lake District – these fares will get you where you want to be for less.
“Tickets are on a first come, first serve basis – so those looking to take advantage of these great £1 fares should book early to avoid disappointment. When they’re gone, they’re gone.”
The £1 sale fares are spread across Northern’s nearly 2,000 services a day – with between 5-10% of service capacity up for grabs at the ‘flash sale’ rate. Some peak time services are excluded – as are those that are already expected to be busy in line with events across the region.
Tickets are available now, but all travel must take place between September 6 and October 20. You can find more information about the Northern flash sale here.
