And we’ve got over 80,000 available for travel in September. Plus, kids travel half price so your little ones can go for the very little price of just 5p.”
Members of money-saving community LatestDeals.co.uk couldn’t believe their eyes, commenting: “Fantastic deal worth a look” and “I think it is a brilliant idea and for people like me who travel by rail a lot is a good saving !!”
Tom Church, Co-Founder of LatestDeals.co.uk, commented: “10p train tickets! I can't believe my eyes! I don't think I've ever seen UK train tickets so cheap. It's practically free and the 10p is probably just to cover the transaction cost of booking the ticket. If you live in any of the locations and can get on board this is a brilliant opportunity to save.”
Wendy Simpson, a member of the site said, "Played around with days and stations and got Blackpool South to Manchester Piccadilly 10p, and Manchester Oxford Road to Blackpool North10p. So day trip to Manchester 20p return each roll on 9th September."
Sandra Ward said, "Omg not sure what the catch is but booked a return journey for 20p per person, who does like a bargain and an adventure."
However, many people struggled to find tickets at the discounted price and vented frustration.
