Government repeats Great British Rail Sale

The Government has relaunched its Great British Rail Sale initiative to encourage more people to travel by train.

Passengers can book tickets until 29 January with discounts of up to 50% on some Advance and Off Peak fares.

The 2022 initiative is claimed to have encouraged around 70,000 adults who had not travelled by train since before the Covid pandemic to travel by rail, with an estimated £7 million saved.

Tickets are not on sale when strikes affect individual train operators.
