Greater group discounts, extra seats and new journeys for VirginVirgin Trains has announced a new timetable from early December which includes new direct services and over 3,000 more seats daily on their hourly services between Birmingham and Scotland. Ticketing arrangements for small groups booking on the Virgin Trains website have been improved with an increased discount of 20% offered for groups of three to nine people travelling together. Timetable improvements include new direct services from Milton Keynes, Coventry and Birmingham International to Scotland, the Lake District and the North West. Graham Leech, Virgin Trains’ executive director (commercial), said: “Our VHF service has been a big hit with customers but we are always looking at ways to make it better. This has been made possible thanks to our increased investment in both new and longer trains, having introduced four brand new Pendolinos and added a further 62 standard carriages to our fleet last year. With that added flexibility we have been able to introduce these new service enhancements and we look forward to welcoming more customers onboard from December and continuing to deliver speedy and enjoyable journeys.”
