Barclaycard Unwind


25% discount on Virgin Trains travel with The Ticket Factory

Due to a market first, getting to events and shows across the country is about to get a lot cheaper following The Ticket Factory’s tie up with Virgin Trains to offer 25% discount on train tickets.

The leading ticket agency is able to offer the discount following the announcement of a new and exciting partnership between the Ticket Factory’s parent company, the NEC Group and Virgin Trains that entitles all Group customers a 25% discount on Virgin Trains’ Advance Fares along the West Coast Main Line.

The discount is redeemable online when purchasing through

When you add this to the unique ‘Fee Free Friday’ initiative where people buying from The Ticket Factory with a Barclaycard don’t pay any booking fees; then it’s another way that The Ticket Factory is trying to help cash-strapped Britain have a good time and still afford to have some memorable experiences.

Stuart Cain, The Ticket Factory’s MD said: “We know that it’s tough out there, but people still want to go out and enjoy themselves.  Whilst we don’t control the price of a concert ticket – that is set by the artist and promoter – we are trying to do our bit by finding innovative ways of cutting the cost of going to a gig.

“For example if you book on a Friday with Barclaycard then get your cheap travel with Virgin, it could save you a chunky sum.  This isn’t a couple of quid we’re talking about, it’s potentially £10-£30 on a night out – that should cover some of the beer money!”

Discounted travel tickets are available to anyone that purchases event tickets through The Ticket Factory’s website for an event or show in a destination that Virgin Trains serve, as well as anyone that attends an event at any of the NEC Group venues - the NIA, LG Arena, ICC and NEC. 
Customers that purchase event tickets through The Ticket Factory will receive a link through to the dedicated Virgin Trains’ website with their confirmation email. Customers will need their event ticket purchased through The Ticket Factory when prompted by the Train Manager on board to validate the travel discount, whilst trade and conference visitors will need to show their event registration along with train ticket in order for the discount to be valid.
