On track for bargain trips

Have your say

A RAIL firm is offering bargain tickets for families to have a day out during the school holidays.

Sheffield to London operator East Midlands Trains said it still has almost a quarter of a million advance tickets available for travel during August, which are half price for youngsters.

Marc Turley, head of marketing at the train company, said: “We know that the summer holidays can be an expensive time for parents and we want to provide an opportunity for an affordable and enjoyable family day out in London.

“We’ve got a wide variety of fares still available for travel during August.

“Our award-winning online Best Fare Finder at www.eastmidlandstrains.co.uk provides easy access to the best fares and the cheapest dates and times to travel and what’s more, anybody with a Friends and Family Railcard can get a further third off the cost of their ticket.”
