News from East Midlands Trains

04.12.2008

From the New Year passengers can visit more destinations with East Midlands Trains for a crazy credit crunching price of just £1!

In an extension to its hugely popular megatrain.com budget rail service, this week sees tickets go on sale to a number of new East Midlands Trains destinations.

Thousands of megatrain.com tickets, priced from just £1 (plus 50p booking fee), are already available for travel to London, from Sheffield, Chesterfield, Derby, Nottingham, Loughborough and Leicester. And from 5 January passengers will be able to use megatrain.com tickets to travel with East Midlands Trains from Sheffield, Chesterfield and Nottingham to Peterborough and Norwich too.

Another benefit is that passengers buying a ticket from megatrain.com travel using either an e-ticket or m-ticket (an m ticket is a booking reference issued by text directly to your mobile phone, an e ticket is a booking reference e mailed directly to your e mail account). This method of ‘no paper ticketing’ is kinder to the environment and helps to keep administration costs down.

East Midlands Trains Commercial Director, David Horne, says:

“We started selling bargain rail tickets for travel on our route to London earlier this year and they have proved incredibly popular. Over 75,000 passengers have travelled with us using these tickets. With prices starting at just £1, the concept now extended to include even more destinations and with the current economic climate, I can only see this trend continuing.

“megatrain.com offers a one stop shop for those looking for a bargain break as it also provides a hotel booking service on its homepage.

“For passengers who can book in advance and be flexible about their travel plans, there are tickets at crazy prices up for grabs at megatrain.com.”
