Virgin Trains offers First Class opportunities
Wednesday 14, July 2010
As the summer holiday period approaches leisure travel is on the increase at the same time as there are slightly less business travellers and that means there is more room in first class.
With that in mind to give passengers the chance to try out the first class product, two money saving offers will soon be available.
A seat sale of 10,000 first class single tickets will be available for exclusive purchase through a special page on the Virgin Trains website. They are available for purchase starting 14 July until 18 July, or until all the 10,000 tickets have been purchased, whichever comes first so it’s very much a case of first come first served for first class!
Travel can be undertaken between 24 July and 5 September and must only be on those specific Virgin Trains services for which the ticket is booked. Examples of these bargain single fares are Manchester or Liverpool to London Euston £25.00, London Euston to Birmingham £20.00, Lancaster or Bangor to London Euston £28.00 and Glasgow to London Euston £35.00. Full details including terms and conditions are set out on virgintrains.com/fcseatsale.
First Class weekend upgrades will be available on the Euston – Birmingham – Wolverhampton route between 24th July and 5th September for a knockdown price of just £10 compared with the normal £15. These can be purchased from the virgintrains.com website, at a ticket office or even on the train from the Train Manager. Just take a seat in First Class and pay the Train Manager during the journey.
First Class is a stylish way of travelling offering an array of complimentary goodies, with high quality food and drink served at seat and on some trains at weekends from the on board Shop, free Wi-Fi internet access, larger reclining seats with more legroom and individual power points. Of course, those purchasing first class products through the website can then use one of the Virgin First Class station lounges where passengers can relax before starting their journey.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
