  1. It’s not true that ALL funding circle investors can save 20% as senior rail cards not acceptable.

    • Bristol – Derby isn’t operated by Virgin – you would have to book a trip on one of their routes, such as London to Manchester

  2. Doesn’t work, I had already booked a train ticket so I thought I would try this and it came out at the same price.

  3. No difference in fare between Edinburgh and London… Not much of an offer, are you sure it’s working?

  4. London to Leeds is exactly the same price! How do you get Virgin to apply the 20% discount?

  5. Hi Becky, just been trying to do this, but the price for the journey I want to do, on a advance Virgin train I want to go on is giving me no discount. Same price as I can get normally. Please let me know what to do?

  6. Password doesn’t work with Virgin since they’ve changed their site. Raised it with them several times but nothings happened. All a bit of a let down….

    • Hi A Miller. Thanks for getting in touch. We’ve looked into this and it should work fine. The only thing to note is that the password is the first box and company name second.
