Transpenine xpress website no need to phone Virgin for bikes

Postby Bonroute » 14 Jun 2018, 12:45pm

I have previously been booking myself and bike on Virgin trains through their call centre for routes on the west coast. Have now found that I can do all this via the Transpenine express website as they sell tickets for Virgin trains! May be of use to other cyclists.

But do they sell the cheap special offers?

In my expedience, the answer to that will be a straight no.
And couldn't give a ****

edit/clarification - I meant Virgin couldn't give a **

I did recently get a special offer virgin ticket and get a bike on the same train but it was a terrible pain.
