TRAIN operator, Northern, has launched a flash sale with over million tickets for journeys across the North of England available for just £1.

The £1 fares are available on bookings made online or through the Northern app, whilst stocks last, for travel between Tuesday, September 6 and Thursday, October 20, 2022. Tickets on Thursday, October 13, are for services originating in Nottingham and The Wirral.

Mark Powles, customer and commercial director at Northern, said: “This is our way of helping to extend the summer holiday feeling by a further six weeks - getting people through until the start of the October half term.

“Whether it’s for a weekend in the historic city of Chester, a night out in Newcastle; a day at the seaside in Scarborough or a walking holiday in the Lake District – these fares will get you where you want to be for less.

“Tickets are on a first come, first served basis – so those looking to take advantage of these great £1 fares should book early to avoid disappointment. When they’re gone, they’re gone.”

The £1 promotional tickets must be booked seven days in advance of travel and are only available online, via Northern’s app and website.

The £1 sale fares are spread across Northern’s nearly 2,000 services a day – with between five-10 per cent of service capacity up for grabs at the ‘flash sale’ rate. Some peak time services are excluded – as are those that are already expected to be busy in line with events across the region.

Northern is the UK’s second largest train operator, with nearly 2,000 services a day to more than 500 stations across the North of England.
