it's back for Autumn 2010 !!
this time the offer has already started and runs to the end of Novermber (or mid December for ATW).
Companies involved are once again Arriva Trains Wales
and First Group
which covers Scotrail, Trans-Pennine Express, Hull Trains, Capital Connect and Great Western.
ATW have a flat rate of Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£15 return, Scotrail is Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£18 return, Hull Trains is Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£25 Hull-London return and the others are a bit variable but London-Plymouth is only Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â£25 return. They all seem to be knocking a couple of quid off if you have a senior railcard and there don't seem to be any quotas or time restrictions.
ATW are offering flat fare add ons for some popular journeys that go a bit off their patch with companies who aren't even running the offer. TPE are offering the ATW ticket as an add on for anyone who wants to join the two networks up (they meet at Manchester).
These prices may not appear if you use ordinary journey planner/ ticket sales sites - you need to go through the links above. Tickets can also be bought at stations and, where permitted, on the trains.
