The Great GWR Getaway Sale: The best deals as huge discounts sees £27 tickets to London

by Staff

Great Western Railway are slashing their train fares by up to 50% this month offering passengers a chance to “escape the January blues”. The new Great GWR Getaway Sale only applies to tickets booked until January 10, but can include journeys until April 16, meaning the cheaper tickets can be used for the Easter holiday.

Tickets covered by the sale include routes in England and Wales and only include Great Western Railway tickets, not Transport for Wales. This sale comes after the UK Government announced a similar sale last April to help with the cost of living crisis. The Department for Transport hoping the scheme will help hard-pressed households facing rising bills and soaring inflation to afford trips across the UK and boost domestic tourism.

This latest sale is not as widespread as the Government promoted one last year, but does offer very similar discounts – including tickets from Cardiff to London for £27. The Great GWR Getaway Sale is available on Advance Single fares only, so you can mix and match fares for your outward and return journeys. There are around 150,000 seats at the discounted rate on sale between January 3 and January 10.
