  • Northern Rail 10p sale (5p for kids)

    Northern Rail 10p sale (5p for kids)

    180,000+ available

    It's back! Northern Rail has priced over 180,000 tickets at just 10p (or 5p for kids) 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 13 Jan-Fri 14 Feb and Mon 24-Sat 29 Feb - but be prepared to hunt around for them.

    To complete your grand (cheap) day out, see our Travel deals.

    How to get the discounted tickets

    To get the 10p and 5p 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. 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 some examples of the 10p sale on Fri 10 Jan:

    • 20p return - Manchester Piccadilly to Blackpool Pleasure beach
    • 20p return - Sheffield to Manchester Piccadilly
    • 20p return - York to Leeds


    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 5p each. A maximum of two children under the age of five can travel for free with each adult travelling on a qualifying ticket.

  • Northern Rail 10p sale (5p for kids)

    Northern Rail 10p sale (5p for kids)

    80,000 available

    Northern is having a Flash sale where you can bag tickets from 10p on selected routes across its network during the month of September. It says there are 80,000 tickets available at 10p, though finding them might be a bit tricky.

    How to get the discounted tickets

    Sale seats are valid for travel in the month of September, from Sun 1 Sep to Mon 30 Sep. To get the discounted 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. You can't get this offer at station ticket offices or use a Railcard, and return journeys don’t qualify for this offer – you’ll instead need to book two singles, so be sure to check if this makes it cheapest.

    It can be hit and miss as to whether the train you want has 10p fares, so it may involve a bit of trial and error to find the cheaper seats – but there'll be more availability the further in advance you book.

    Northern says the sale tickets will mostly be on off-peak trains, with very limited availability during weekday peak times, so you may need to be flexible on times and dates to get the cheapest tickets.

    There are plenty of northern stations in the deal that you can travel from. On the Northern sale page, click on the 'see all stations offering flash sale tickets' to check if yours is included.

    Top fares we found

    We found some examples of the 10p sale on Tue 20 Aug, although it took some digging:

    • 20p return - Manchester Piccadilly to Blackpool Pleasure beach
    • 20p return - Sheffield to Manchester Piccadilly
    • 20p return - Leeds to Sheffield

     

    It's worth noting that these tickets are only valid for the specific train selected when booking, and are non-refundable.

    Are child tickets included?

    Discounted child tickets are available in this sale for half the price of the adult sale ticket, so they'll be priced at 5p. If you get lucky, a family of four – two adults and two children – could visit Blackpool from Manchester for 60p return - 10p each way for each adult, 5p each way for each child (norm £40.50 return). Up to two children under the age of five can travel for free with each adult that holds a qualifying ticket.
