  • Northern Rail £1 sale (50p for kids)

    Northern Rail £1 sale (50p for kids)

    1,000,000+ available

    Expired

    It's back! Northern Rail is selling over 1,000,000 advance single tickets for £1 (or 50p for children aged 5-15) in its 'Flash Sale'. You'll find them on selected routes such as Blackpool to Leeds, Manchester to Liverpool, and Newcastle to Darlington, for travel between Mon 6 Sep – Fri 22 Oct, but be prepared to hunt around for them.

    How to get the discounted tickets

    To get the £1 and 50p seats, you’ll need to book a single adult or child (5-15 years) ‘Standard Advanced Ticket’ on the Northern website or via its app (Android/IOS). You won't be able to get this offer at station ticket offices. Return journeys don’t qualify so you’ll need to book two singles - be sure to check if this makes the total journey cheapest.

    As the promotional routes cover various destinations and dates, it will be trial and error finding the cheaper seats. There'll be more availability the further in advance you book and it helps if you can be flexible on dates and destination.

    Last time Northern ran this offer, it applied mostly to off-peak trains, with limited availability during weekday peak times, so be aware that this could be the case this time round.

    Top fares we found:

    We dug around and found there were over 200 stations included in the sale.

    Here are some examples we found on Tue 24 Aug:

    • York to Leeds
    • Newcastle to Durham
    • Blackpool North to Manchester Airport
    • Doncaster to Chesterfield

    Some of the destinations offering 'Flash Sale' tickets:

    • Nottingham
    • Stockport
    • Rochdale
    • Buxton
    • Doncaster
    • Newcastle
    • Harrogate
    • Manchester Piccadilly

    These tickets are only valid for the specific train selected when booking, and are non-refundable.

    How about children?

    Discounted child tickets are available in this sale for half the price, so they'll be 50p each. A maximum of two children under the age of five can travel for free with each adult travelling on a qualifying ticket.
