GNER are running a promotion for cheap off-peak fares (Only £25 for London-Edinburgh). As I am having to face the prospect of running up to Edinburgh at some point soon to sort out where I’m going to live when I do my Masters, I thought I’d check it out.
Now, a sensible company running a website and online booking system would surely orientate the system so that it would tell you which trains these nice cheap fares are available on. Instead, you have to enter random dates and times and wait for the frustratingly slow interface to tell you whether there are cheap tickets available for then. After much pissing about, I think that there are no tickets on the days I want for the next 2-3 weeks, but I can’t be sure. I’m going to have to ring them tomorrow to make sure. :-( So much for easy online booking.
