Millions of train tickets are currently on sale from just £1 each, as Northern has brought its popular ‘Flash Sale’ back for 2024.

A whopping FIVE MILLION of them, to be exact.

For the last couple of years, the rail operator has made life a little easier for train travellers by giving them the chance to grab one of several million tickets from prices as little as 50p – and now, with the cost of living crisis sadly continuing to make its impact felt, Northern has decided to kick off the new year by slashing prices once again.

It means that millions of people will have the opportunity to make a cut-price journey across the North of England before March.

There’s plenty of Greater Manchester journeys included in the sale too.


With the company’s regular ‘Flash Sales’ having gone onto become a somewhat legendary event at this point, it probably comes as no shock that you’ll need to act fast if you want to be in with a chance of get your hands tickets.

Tickets are already on sale now, and are available until 4pm tomorrow (Friday 5 January).


Some of the sample Greater Manchester destination journeys include from Bolton to Manchester Victoria, and from Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria to Manchester Piccadilly – but there’s loads more to pick from too.

“The ‘Flash Sale’ extends to every corner of our network, with £1 tickets up for grabs for both local and longer, cross-country journeys,” explained Mark Powles, who is the Commercial and Customer Director at Northern, “and we hope it will inspire people to get out and about across the region for those moments that matter most.”

As always, Mr Powles said customers should look to book their tickets early to “avoid disappointment”, as unfortunately “once they’re gone, they’re gone.”
