Cheap family rail ticket offer just for summer holidays

Wednesday, 10 July 2019

School summer holidays are often an opportunity for travel companies to put prices up - but Stansted Express has bucked the trend and introduced a special summer-only offer cutting fares by up to 60 per cent.

Stansted Express is the fastest way to travel between central London and Stansted Airport - and now the company has brought in a new Family Offer Ticket which is available until the end of September.

The great value ticket, introduced in time for the great summer getaway, means that one adult and up to three children can travel from London to Stansted Airport for just £29.90 return – a saving of up to £44.85 on Standard Class Return.

For two adults and up to three children, the price is barely more than £10 per person at £52 return – a saving of up to £52.65 compared to the price of a Standard Class Return.

These special offer fares are available until Monday 30 September for journeys starting from London Liverpool Street, Stratford or Tottenham Hale to Stansted Airport.

The offer is available online only – from www.stanstedexpress.com – and families must travel together on the train.

David Metherell, Head of Commercial Development at Stansted Express said: “We know how costs mount up when going away with your family, especially in the school summer holidays.

“But we’re pleased to be making travel in the summer much cheaper for families – and travelling by train to the airport is so much easier than taking the car. You don’t have to risk the traffic, find a parking space, and then make your way to the terminal.

“Our Stansted Airport rail station is right underneath the airport terminal and just a few minutes’ walk from the entrance.

“We’re offering people the best start to their holidays.”

Stansted Express is the fastest way to travel between London and Stansted Airport, taking just 47 minutes. Trains depart every 15 minutes on weekdays.
