  • The 'Great British Rail Sale' - over a million train tickets 'up to 50% off' 

    The 'Great British Rail Sale' - over a million train tickets 'up to 50% off' 

    Plus trick to get an extra 5% off via TrainPal or 10% credit back via Uber


    The 'Great British Rail Sale' gives 'up to 50% off' over one million selected advance and off-peak rail tickets. In the sale, English and Welsh Government-contracted train operators are offering discounted tickets until 11.59pm on Monday 29 January, though they're likely to go quickly, so don't hang about. 

    The 'up to 50% off' fares are for selected routes throughout England and Wales, as well as those that cross the Scottish border, for travel between Tuesday 30 January and Friday 15 March and you need to book at least seven days in advance of travelling. 

    The sale is part of a Department For Transport (DfT) initiative. The DfT told us most rail operators in Britain are included in the sale, but that ScotRail, Caledonian Sleeper, Lumo, Hull Trains, TfL rail and London Overground are excluded. There are a few ways to book...

    • Book via third-party booking site TrainPal to get an extra 5% discount. Select your discounted tickets, then log in or sign up to TrainPal*, and enter the code BRS5 at the checkout to get an extra 5% off – the code is for both new and existing users. There are no fees when booking via TrainPal and you'll receive digital tickets (same as booking direct).

      You can only use the discount code once per account, and it's valid for 14 days from the date you add it to your account, so even if you decide not to use this code for Great British Rail Sale tickets, you can still use it on a different journey booked via TrainPal.

    • Or, book via Uber to get 10% back in credit. The Uber credit will appear within 10 days, and will be valid for a further six months. This could be a good option if you regularly use the Uber app for travelling as you're essentially getting cashback to use towards your next journey.

    • Or, book via the Great British Rail Sale website without the extra discount. As the Great British Rail Sale routes cover various destinations and dates, it will be trial and error finding the cheaper seats for when you want to travel. There'll be more availability the further in advance you book and it helps if you can be flexible on dates and destination.

    Sale fares cannot be used alongside railcards. The sale isn't for travel within Scotland, or in Northern Ireland, but it will apply to routes that cross the English and Scottish border, such as London to Edinburgh.

    Here are some examples of popular train journeys and how much you could save:

    • Portsmouth to Penzance – £21 (was £43)
    • Birmingham to Bristol –  £15.30 (was £30.60)
    • Manchester to Leeds – £4.30 (was £8.60)
    • Leicester to Sheffield – £3.60 (was £7.30)

    What does 'up to 50% off' mean?

    The DfT told us the majority of discounts are around 50% against an off-peak ticket or an advance purchase price. Though, in the case of advance purchase, the (non sale) prices of these tickets may vary, so you may see more or less of a discount compared to what you usually pay.

    See our cheap train tickets guide for more ways to save.
