The Great Rail Sale

Author: Chloe Smith, Updated: 21 April 2022 11:25

This week the Government is slashed the price of over 1 million rail tickets by up to 50 per cent. 

Tickets went on sale from 19th April with discounted tickets available on journeys from 25th April to 27th May. 

We fully recognise the extra difficulties families face following the global increase in the cost of living and rising inflation – and we will help however we can. 

In the first ever Great British Rail Sale, cutting the cost of rail travel helps encourage people back onto our railways to connect with friends and family across the country. 

The discount will be available on selected Advance tickets from participating train companies or Off-Peak tickets as an alternative on some routes. Customers can find out more by visiting 

To make sure more passengers can benefit, Railcard customers will also be able to save an extra third off a Great British Rail Sale ticket. This means that under 30 year olds, over 60s and disabled passengers will travel for even less. Passengers who need extra support to find or buy discounted tickets will be able to contact their preferred retailer direct and purchase their tickets over the phone or at their nearest, staffed, ticket office. 

For residents of Norwich North, this includes being able to save 50% on selected Greater Anglia Standard Class Advance tickets, their cheapest fare, between 19th April to 2nd May. Journeys from Norwich/Ipswich to London Liverpool Street are now just £5 per adult, reduced from the previous price of £10. 

I am sure constituents will be pleased to hear of this valuable opportunity, to help give everyone a chance to see friends, families, or take a well-deserved break.
