TRAIN operator Avanti West Coast will offer a ticket from Glasgow to London for £30.

The company is extending its low-cost ticket initiative for customers making cross-border travel.

The Superfare ticket enables customers to book a journey for a specific date with the choice of morning, afternoon or evening slots at a cheaper fare with the exact time of travel selected by the operator.

This can now be purchased for journeys between London and Glasgow.

With around 24 hours’ notice, Avanti will match customers to an empty seat on a quieter train and advise them of their reservation details and departure time.

Available for single journeys, the ticket costs £30 and comes after the launch of the cheaper fare to other destinations on the West Coast route, including Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester and Preston.

Weekday travel dates from Monday, April 24, are available to book now. From May 20, Superfare tickets will be available seven days a week.

Sarah Copley, executive director for commercial at Avanti West Coast, said: “We’re excited to rollout our Superfare ticket on our Anglo Scot route, so more customers who have flexibility around travel times can enjoy cheaper fares to another destination on the west coast.

“Customers simply pick the date and time of day they wish to travel, then 24 hours before their journey we match them to an empty seat onboard a specific train with a reservation.

“By offering a quick and easy way to select even more cost-effective fares, we hope to make it simpler for customers to find the right ticket for their needs, while encouraging others to take the train.”
