Summer offers from the three TOCs - updated Wednesday 24th July 2013

+Virgin Trains has a First Class seat sale for travel between Monday 29 July and Sunday 1 September. Booking in advance is required and advance booking for the sale closes on Tuesday 23rd July. Fares between Birmingham and London start at £18.50 and seem to be available most days after 9.30. Fares from London to Birmingham also start at £18.50 but seem to be available only in the morning and evening Monday to Fridays (though all day on Saturday and most of the day Sunday).
The Sale has ended but £23.50 First Class Advance Single tickets seem to be fairly widely available in August both ways outside the Monday-Friday peak times

+Chiltern Railways ' Evening Standard £2.50 offer ends on Friday 26th July with the last day for booking being Thursday 25th July. Full details in a previous blog post. Don't forget that the Chiltern 'Summer of Surprises' promotion promises "Everything from special travel offers and fantastic discounts on hundreds of amazing attractions to exclusive competitions and giveaways" during the six week break...
The first 'Summer of Surprises' email has now been distributed and features...

Win a day of hospitality at the Women's Ashes at Wormsley Cricket Ground near High Wycombe Station

+London Midland are waiting for the Royal Birth before 'The Kate Escape' begins... The promise is 1% off LM advance and off-peak tickers for every pound the new baby weighs (eg 8lb birth weight will mean 8% off). You have to be registered for LM marketing emails to get the 'special' link, and the sale is not likely to last for long...
The arrival of the Prince has enabled LM to email their registered web users with details of the 8% discount on Advance and Off-Peak LM fares. Advance bookings to be made or off-peak walk-on tickets bought through the web site by Sunday 4th of August; outward travel must be by Sunday 1st September.

Finally, +London Midland are looking for volunteers to test a new iPhone and Android app - visit for more information.
