Hello there,

I'm currently looking at booking a return ticket to London from Birmingham for next Wednesday, and I've noticed on both East Coasts' and thetrainlines' websites that they show that an Off Peak Return, valid for a month, is valid on all evening peak Virgin Trains departures out of Euston, including the 17:03, 17:23 and 17:43 at a price of £31 with a 16-25 Railcard.

Is this really the case? A prompt answer would be appreciated so I can get on with my ticket bookings. :)

It's correct thanks to Virgin's railcard easement permitting railcard holders (including 16-25) to travel at any time on an off peak ticket when using wholly virgin services.

Different validity will apply to any other TOC though

T'was the case recently at least, Virgin have had that thing with allowing railcard holders to travel at any time, peak or not, on their trains for a long time. Take advantage I would, and don't forget 1K39 if you're returning on a Friday

Apologies - middle management. :p

The peak trains on the EBW route are moderately loaded in standard. There's always a proliferation of railcard holders on board! You can often get reasonably priced Advances if you book quite far in advance.
