East Midlands Trains launches new low price ticket tool

  • East Midlands Trains launches new ticket alerts tool
  • Easier way of searching for Advance tickets
  • Enables customers to search for Advance tickets that are not yet on sale and register for email alerts

East Midlands Trains customers can now search for tickets before they are even on sale and make sure they don’t miss out on booking their favourite journeys at the best prices.

The brand new ticket alert tool means customers don’t have to keep checking the website for tickets. They can simply sign up for email alerts and as soon as Advance tickets become available on a particular route on their chosen travel date, they are notified by email. 

Lawrence Bowman, Commercial Director for East Midlands Trains, said: “Advance tickets are the cheapest train tickets you can buy and the earlier you book, the cheaper they are so this is a really positive result for our customers.

“Advance tickets are generally available to buy 12 weeks ahead of time but this can vary which is what makes the alert tool so handy.”

The ticket alerts tool is easy to use. Customers can search for an Advance journey and register for the alert. The database then checks every night until that journey goes on sale. When Advance tickets become available for the dates the customer has searched, they will receive an email from East Midlands Trains.
