To qualify for these extraspecial fares, you need to collect two differently-numbered tokens from the Daily Record and attach them to the collector voucher printed today. We will print the final token tomorrow. With one set of tokens up to four people can travel together.

The reader offer fares are available for travel between May 8 and July 9, 2010 for travel on off-peak services with limited availability on Friday and Sunday afternoons. At such great prices, we are expecting a high response with the biggest demand for travel at weekends, so if you can travel mid-week you will have more choice. May 28 to June 6 inclusive and July 1 to July 2 inclusive are excluded from the promotion.

Tickets To give you greater choice and flexibility all advance tickets are sold as single fares, allowing you to choose the lowest available prices for every stage of your journey. This means you can select the reader offer fare on the outward journey and, if the return train of your choice is unavailable, you can select the best fare shown.
