Train tickets from London to York aren't all that cheap at the moment - except this one:

Journey 1: LONDON KINGS CROSS to YORK
Travel on Saturday 29 September 2012
Departs Arrives By
07:48 - London Kings Cross 09:39 - York

£13.60

Journey 2: YORK to LONDON KINGS CROSS
Travel on Sunday 30 September 2012
Departs Arrives By Reservations
10:50 - York 12:44 - London Kings Cross Train

£21.60


Thanks for this info - I have booked, although £13.60 mysteriously became £22.60 when I booked.

Yes. I noticed that amount as well when I enquired. I find that usually East Coast Trains tends to have the best allotment of discounted tickets and allow you to book further ahead than general. Although for the last few months i haven’t been getting the usual heads-up email alerts which tell you that they have a new batch of 5,000 new tickets starting at £13 from London to York, or whatever.

I have been told that this type of thing happens online and has happened to me, somehow the site marks the fare up when you go back to book it a second time and that clearing the cache will stop that occuring.

Being pedantic, it's deleting cookies that may stop that, not clearing the cache.

Or use one browser (eg IE) to check, and another (eg Firefox) to buy.

OK, that may be it, but I was also told to clear the cache

A word of warning!

Just in case anyone is using Raileasy.co.uk to purchase train tickets to get to York........

I was trying to order my ticket to York this afternoon. Each time I got to the final screen it told my the transaction had not been authorised due to either incorrect security code or post code. I was given the option to re-try if the details were correct and like a numpty, I did :oops:

Cut a long story short, the payment has been taken from my account FIVE times.......and still no e-mail confirmation of my ticket purchase! :(

Well, the worst of it is - can you phone someone to resolve the problem?

No.

You have to e-mail the refund section and wait for a reply, then you have to wait up to FOUR weeks in order for the refund to be processed :x
