Avanti West Coast has extended its Superfare ticket to more routes to mark the popular low cost fare’s first anniversary

A one-way ticket to London from Birmingham International is one of 10 more journey opportunities in the West Midlands and Lake District that have been added to Avanti West Coast’s wide range of Superfare tickets.

More than 50,000 customers have already snapped up bargains on the Liverpool, Birmingham New Street, Manchester, Preston and Glasgow routes, with many opting for rail over other forms of transport as a result.

The Superfare ticket enables customers to book a journey for a specific date with the choice of morning, afternoon, or evening slots at a cheaper fare – with the exact time of travel being selected by the intercity operator.

With around 24 hours’ notice prior to the day of travel, Avanti West Coast will match customers to an empty seat on a quieter train and advise them of their reservation details and train’s departure time.

From today (Tuesday, April 30), customers from Rugby, Coventry, Nuneaton, Birmingham International and Wolverhampton can travel to London for £9.

Each week thousands of Superfare tickets are made available and from May 1 will be available to purchase much earlier, with bookings possible from eight weeks before travel to allow customers to plan even further ahead. Bookings must still be made at least seven days before travel.
