virgin rail tickets sale £10 to london etc

Recommended Posts

On the surface it appears a great sale, and as long as you want to travel when the sale tickets are available, you can save an awful lot of money.

But in practical terms, talking as someone who uses the train a lot, the sale is meaningless. Tickets are all one way, so you can never get a single back, for the same reduced price, you can never get a train when you want it, and because of the crap way the train companies are organised these days it's likely most journeys will involve trains run by two companies, so you can't get a ticket for your whole journey !

Am I being a cynic in thinking this isn't a sale at all really, because they are just trying to shift seats on trains that aren't normally sold.

How does the saying go "You can't polish a turd", but if you reduce it enough, someone will buy it :lol:
