From 19 April to 11.59pm on 2 May, customers can save up to 50% off selected advance tickets on thousands of journeys across the whole of the UK including the Greater Anglia network.

Martin Moran, Greater Anglia’s Commercial, Customer Services and Train Presentation Director, said: “Customers travelling across East Anglia can now save up to 50% on advance tickets. There is only a limited number and when they’re gone, they’re gone.

“The Great British Rail Sale is a great opportunity for people to explore all East Anglia has to offer – there is so much to see and do. Take a trip to London to soak up the sights, visit one of the many wonderful coastal destinations or explore a new town or city.

“There are even more savings to be had with a railcard. Railcard customers will be able to save an additional 1/3 off a discounted ticket providing the railcard discount is eligible on the chosen journey.”

Great British Rail Sale tickets are valid only on the date and train shown on the ticket or for the journey and train company booked. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis but are not limited to one per person.
