Train company launches ‘sensational’ ticket sale with seats from £5
LNER has launched a ‘sensational seat sale’ with thousands of tickets available from as little as £5.
The train company is making 200,000 bargain fares available for travel between 6 September and 15 October on routes along the East Coast Main Line connecting Scotland and North East England with York and London.
Reduced fares range include £5 for a single journey between destinations such as London King’s Cross and Peterborough, Durham and York and Edinburgh and Berwick.
York, Newcastle and Edinburgh are proving to be amongst the most popular destinations for those booking and traveling with LNER.
Since April 2021 over four million journeys have been enjoyed with LNER, more than the total number of journeys completed for the previous 12 months combined.
Journey searches on the LNER website have also seen an increase of 11 per cent compared with July as people increasingly plan and book ahead. There have been more than 750,000 journey searches on the LNER website since lockdown easing on 19 July.
David Horne, Managing Director at LNER, said: “Our sensational seat sale offers incredible value fares on some of LNER’s most popular routes so people can enjoy some of the fantastic destinations on our route.
“Our services are consistently above 90 per cent of pre-Covid levels as we see more people returning to the railway to travel.
“We continue to monitor demand and this latest offer, combined with making tickets available for Christmas and New Year travel, are just some of the ways we’re welcoming people back to LNER and enjoy all we have to offer.”
The offer is live on the LNER website and app until 9am on 1 September.
