Virgin Trains: Can’t get a millennial railcard? Virgin Trains ‘avo’ solution

Published on : Wednesday, March 14, 2018

unnamedCan’t get hold of the new millennial railcard due to high levels of demand crashing the railcard.co.uk website? Fear not, as Virgin Trains may just ‘avo’ the answer. Try the #Avocard for size.

Customers aged between 26 and 30 buying tickets for journeys with Virgin Trains on the West Coast from today until midnight on 20th March can qualify for the same discount as offered by the 26-30 railcard, so long as they bring along a vital ingredient… the millennial staple; an avocado.

Passengers who meet the criteria to qualify for a 26-30 railcard can bag themselves a discount on their journey with Virgin Trains on the West Coast by simply presenting an avocado at the ticket office, instead of the usual railcard, along with photo identification. And after buying their tickets, the #Avocard can be enjoyed as a healthy snack!

Journeys booked using the #Avocard must be completed by midnight on 20th March.

The combined network connects some of the nation’s most iconic destinations including Glasgow, Liverpool, Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Leeds, York and London.

Virgin Trains is committed to delivering a high speed, high frequency service, offering shorter journey times, more comfortable travel and excellent customer service. Customers consistently rate Virgin Trains as one of the top long-distance rail franchise operators in the National Rail Passenger Survey (NRPS) commissioned by industry watchdog, Transport Focus.
On the East Coast route, £140m is being invested to create a more personalised travel experience. We have already invested over £40m in our existing fleet, including £21m refurbishing interiors and £16m towards improving the engines of our trains. Customers can now benefit from 48 additional services between Edinburgh and London every week, and an extra 22 Saturday services between Leeds and London – a total of 1.74 million additional seats since May 2015. 2018 will see the introduction of completely new Azuma trains being built in the UK by Hitachi.

The West Coast route has a proud record of challenging the status quo – from introducing tilting Pendolino trains, to a pioneering automated delay repay scheme and becoming the first franchised rail operator to offer m-Tickets for all ticket types.
