c2c line status: Good service

21 July 2015


National Express train operator c2c is providing extra seats and offering children’s tickets for just £1 during the school summer holidays.


The most popular post-peak morning trains are being doubled in length to eight carriages from today until the end of the summer holidays. This provides 4,000 extra seats each day and benefits day trippers, whether they’re heading to London or the seaside.


And until 2 September, children aged 5-15 can travel for just £1 each off-peak as long as they are accompanied by a grown-up travelling on an adult ticket. This includes season ticket holders and people who buy c2c’s advance tickets, which have a discount of up to 40% on the standard price.


c2c has also launched an online ideas generator to give parents and grandparents top tips for possible days out during the school summer holidays at http://www.c2c-online.co.uk/days-out-and-offers/where2next/.


c2c Commercial Director Clare McCaffrey said: “Summer’s here and we know what a popular time it is for a day out, whether sight-seeing in London or a day at the beach. That’s why we’re adding thousands of extra seats to our trains, and running our special ‘kids for a quid’ offer. Combined with our huge discounts on advance tickets, families can find really affordable days out with c2c.”
