    Yes I think it did experience some problems yesterday as I also had problems with it all day. It seems to have been fixed overnight.

    East Coast are doing a competition at the moment to win twelve pairs of First Class tickets throughout the year.

    Not only that but if you enter by 31st August 2011 then you will be e-mailed vouchers on the first day of the month for a 20% discount on First Advance fares valid for bookings made by 14th September 2011.

    Not sure whether this means one voucher or several but if you are thinking of going first on EC at some point in the future then it should be worth getting.

    Link is here:

    Which they're describing as "A year's free 1st class travel on East Coast" - that *did* get me excited until I read the details.

    London Midland will be having another half price sale (presumably to coincide with the summer holidays)

    http://www.londonmidland.com/tickets-and-fares/half-price-summer-rail-sale/

    This time it's on off-peak tickets (SVR and CDR) and appears to cover their whole area both local and intercity.

    Valid from 23/7/11 - 4/9/11 but tickets may be bought now as long as travel falls between those dates

    I wonder if an SVR bought for the 2nd of September under this promotion will still be valid to the 1st of October.

    Worth checking before you buy what the expiry date is.

    I have trouble getting ones valid into next year at Keighley Bus Station and have never managed to buy one there with validity into the year after. Annoying if you're trying to stock up before a price rise or take advantage of
    offers like this.

    Here's something I posted earlier before I discovered this thread.

    -----

    First Capital Connect are offering a limited-time 10% discount on some of their off-peak tickets, subject to the following T&Cs (copied verbatim):

    1. The 10% discount is available on the following fares:

    - Off-Peak Day Return or Off-Peak Day Travelcard
    - Super Off-Peak Day Return or Super Off-Peak Day Travelcard

    2. The 10% discount applies when booking Off-Peak Day Return or Off-Peak Day Travelcard for travel Monday to Friday and Super Off-Peak Day Return and Super Off-Peak Day Travelcard for travel Saturday or Sunday.

    3. The discount is only valid when travelling to London stations.

    4. Also for travel from City Thameslink; London Blackfriars or London Bridge stations to Brighton

    5. All bookings must be made online via the First Capital Connect website.

    6. Railcard and Groupsave tickets are also valid offering even further value for money.

    7. The travel dates for these discounted tickets will be 6th August to 20th August 2011 only.


    The promotion code is FCCSUMMER.

    Slightly annoyed and confused here. Today I picked up a couple of First Advance tickets for Newcastle-York next month. Ordered yesterday, so I missed the latest offer. The tickets show a 25% discount not the normal 10% web discount. Haven't seen that offer mentioned anywhere.

    The FCC 10% discount I mentioned earlier (see post #81) has now been extended to Bank Holiday Monday.
