    Not sure how long it's been running but Omio are running 10% discount through Student Beans. Seems like you can get multiple codes & no end date stated.

    Transport for Wales 20% off, but can't be used with Railcards so it's not much use to many of us.
    Use Code ADV20
    Here's the link -
    https://elinkeu.clickdimensions.com...bb/6/666/986bc036-ec04-486f-922c-7f25710fbe38

    Thanks for letting us all know. I saw this just before midnight and quickly bagged myself some sweet cashback

    However, one of purchases tracked at 5% and the other at 16%. Has this happened to anyone else before?

    Hi - no bother, this did happen to me before, the reason is Omio work on European Time which is an hour in front of us in the UK. I raised an incorrect cashback query with Quidco and that got it sorted out.

    Just spotted Cross Country on SEATFROG! For York to Newcastle, from £6. I then tried Manchester to stoke and this wasn't on. A shame when the virgin seatfrog upgrade is £12 between these!

    Surprised it wouldn't carry on as all First TOC's use Nectar.

    I've just subscribed to Virgin Trains website to try entering the First Class Anywhere competition but I can't it anywhere on the site. Can anybody help please with a direct link?

    Also, how do I log off? I can't find that either.

    Thanks for the pointer @_toommm_

    Unsure as to whether this is genuinely an offer, but in the Offers section of the TransPennine website, they're advertising £10 singles from Liverpool to Glasgow from December.

    Who buys a single? I've had a Northern delay repay Single sitting in my wallet for over a year. It's useless on its own.

    I've certainly used them in one direction and got an advance for the other, and also combined 2 singles to use for a return journey.

    If you get hold of another single, you can do something silly like:
    Bamber Bridge - Darlington/Eaglescliffe/Middlesborough, via Barrow & Sunderland
    Advance for Eaglescliffe/Middlesborough/Darlington to York [either Grand Central, TPE, XC or LNER]
    York - Bamber Bridge via Leeds, Sheffield, Manchester, Blackburn (for a roundabout way)

    I've just been to Omio to try to book at ticket with the discount applied, but it then tried to apply a booking fee, so it works out more expensive overall.

    TrainPal have a Black Friday promotion on, think it varies from person to person as you have to do 3 spins - anyway I got £5 off if I spent £20
    and 2x£2 off if I spent £10. Different expiry dates on the vouchers.
