  • 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.

    Northern train sale, eg, Leeds-Manc £3 return

    50% off ALL standard advance fares for 20 Feb-20 Mar travel

    Until 11.59pm on Sun 15 JanNorthern is having a 50% off sale on all standard advance fares across its network in Northern England (see full map), including one-way tickets available between Leeds and Manchester for £1.50 and between Sheffield and Nottingham for £2.75.

    How to get the discounted tickets

    Sale seats are valid for travel from Mon 20 Feb until Mon 20 Mar. To get the discounted seats, you’ll need to book by 15 Jan online at Northern – you can't get this offer at station ticket offices.

    The 50% off is available on all standard advance tickets, but it can be hit and miss as to whether the train you want has advance fares and it may involve a bit of trial and error to find the cheaper fares – but there will be more availability the further in advance you book. To see if the journey you want is discounted, enter your departure station at this Northern link.

    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.

    Once you've selected your travel dates, you'll be shown which trains have the cheapest tickets – sale seats are called 'Northern 50% Off'. For return trips, you'll need to book two singles to get the cheapest fare, so check both are at the discounted rate before booking – return fares are offered but these will be a lot more expensive than buying two 'Northern 50% Off' singles.
