Yorkshire Regional Newspapers has teamed up with East Coast to bring you an amazing rail offer. There are thousands of discounted Advance fares available just for you, such as Leeds, York, Wakefield, Doncaster and Hull* to London for just £8 and York to Edinburgh for £8 -all one-way Standard Class fares.

 

Or treat yourself to First Class. There are some fabulous fares on offer, such as Leeds, York and Wakefield to London for £33, Doncaster to London for £32 or York to Edinburgh for just £24 - all one-way First Class fares.

 

To qualify for these extra-special fares, you need to collect four tokens from your local paper. One token will be printed every day from 11th October 2010 until 22nd October 2010. What’s more, with one set of tokens up to four people can travel together.

 

The Reader Offer fares are available for travel between 1st November and 17th December 2010, for travel on off-peak services with limited availability on Friday and Sunday afternoons. At such great prices, we are expecting a high response with the biggest demand for travel at weekends, so if you can travel mid-week you will have more choice.

 

To give you greater choice and flexibility all Advance tickets are sold as single fares, allowing you to choose the lowest available prices for every stage of your journey. This means you can select the Reader Offer fare on the outward journey and, if the return train of your choice is unavailable, you can select the best fare shown. This mix and match option will give you even greater opportunities to travel at a great price.

 

Seats are subject to availability and Reader Offer fare bookings must be made 3 weeks in advance, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
