Big savings for small groups

A great excuse to get away with the gang

If you’re travelling with a group of 3-9 people you can all enjoy 25% off Virgin Trains East Coast Advance tickets. That’s more to spend on lunch, coffees, rounds, or whatever else takes your fancy when you’re there. Plus, with a whole host of exciting destinations – including London, York, Edinburgh, Leeds and Newcastle – there’s plenty for family and friends to enjoy across the entire East Coast route.

How it works

  • Low cost group fares are only available online through this site for groups of 3-9 people.
  • Look out for the G symbol next to the fare when choosing your tickets.
  • The offer is applicable to all Virgin Trains East Coast Advance fares in both Standard and First Class – so you can make an even bigger saving.
