Sweetheart Saver ticket
We know that long distance love can be tough.
In fact, our research found that students in long-distance relationships spend nearly £5,000 a year trying to keep the romance alive - including £163 per month on travel - and are on average 231 miles apart.
In response, we launched an industry-first ‘Sweetheart Saver’ trial ticket, offering ten couples free travel between two destinations for a year – if the trial is successful, we hope to roll out the ticket across the network.
Unfortunately, the competition to be part of the trial has now closed…but keep your eye on our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter channels as we’ll be following up with our winners and their blossoming romances. You can also follow the journey of Jonny and Sofie, the first couple to trial the ticket, by watching the video below.
