Rail passengers in Gedling borough can now get their hands on cheaper train tickets using a new online tool.
East Midlands Trains has launched a brand new ticket alert tool means customers don’t have to keep checking the firm’s website for tickets. They can simply sign up for email alerts and as soon as Advance tickets become available on a particular route on their chosen travel date, they are notified by email.
Lawrence Bowman, Commercial Director for East Midlands Trains, which has stations in Carlton, Burton Joyce and Netherfield, said: “Advance tickets are the cheapest train tickets you can buy and the earlier you book, the cheaper they are so this is a really positive result for our customers.
“Advance tickets are generally available to buy 12 weeks ahead of time but this can vary which is what makes the alert tool so handy.”
Customers can search for an Advance journey and register for the alert. The database then checks every night until that journey goes on sale. When Advance tickets become available for the dates the customer has searched, they will receive an email from East Midlands Trains.
