    As I say its my own fault, tight old git, £75 would not have broke the bank, hopefully I'll be O/K going forward, and I get a new scarf to boot ;).

    Can I ask - is this on the app only? I’ve looked on a few sites (inc LNER, National Rail, Trainline.com) ans it’s coming in at around £75pp minimum

    The website I use is https://www.nationalrail.co.uk/

    If you scroll down to the bottom of the page in the left hand column there is a further link ‘Cheap Fare Finder’. Try that one.:thumbup:

    I have priced from Leeds to London, rather than Bradford as it is often cheaper to do it that way.
    The price is for one Adult and one Child going down and returning on 3/12/2022.
    Did you hit the ‘Cheap fare finder’?
    If you look at the screen shot top left you can see that this price has come up just before 2.00pm today. I am sure @StaffordBantam@StaffordBantam can confirm it, or may know of an even better deal.

    Yes, agreed that both the above are as cheap as is currently available.

    However, if the current industrial disputes are still going by then, I should caution everyone that Saturday's seem to be very popular strike days with the unions involved.

    Also, issues such as Sky selecting the match or the kick off being brought forward (energy saving) could also interfere with plans.

    Well whoop-dee-doo just got confirmation of our new memberships being accepted and our loyalty points total is now 1000 each, as we already had 980 and 970 on Wednesday when I purchased the membership, as I was under the impression buying a membership automatically added 100 points to your total.
    I rang the ticket office who are usually very good with regards queries and was told they don't have anything to do with this new membership scheme and to send an email to ticketingsupport@bradfordcityafc.com.

    Has anyone any information with regards bringing this to who ever runs this new membership scheme.

    Yeah it was coming out at nearly £300 using the cheap fare finder for one adult, one 16 year old and two u-16s.
    That said, I was looking at Halifax to London so maybe need to skip the Halifax leg for pricing!
    Will re visit!

    Two things to consider. Firstly use a railcard, in your case family and friends

    https://www.familyandfriends-railcard.co.uk/

    This has an initial cost of £30 but saves 1/3rd for adults and up to 60% for under 16s. Read the T&Cs for full understanding

    Secondly, u are right, the Halifax leg is costing you. IMO, book Halifax to leeds and then Leeds to London. Use the following site, which I use regularly :

    https://v3.trainsplit.com/

    it finds the cheapest way to get from a to b. In many cases you stay on the same train but may have multiple tickets.

    Details here https://v3.trainsplit.com/about

    By adopting railcard and train split, I can the whole thing for around £90 for your peoples.... Screenshot_20220923_224449_com.android.chrome.jpg Screenshot_20220923_224530_com.android.chrome.jpg

    Thanks for the offer Vin but I’m sure you must have mates who need one. If not and you still have one, great, I’ll buy it!

    Did you buy a new membership? I've a suspicion the 100 points for that may have been removed.

    Yes I did but if that was the case I would have expected 100 to disappear although I do know someone who this morning realized he's 100 missing so you could be right.
    At the end of the day it's a shambles.

    Harrogate & Salford points have been added overnight. If you purchased those, then your net loss would be 60 points.

    We go to London a couple of times a year and always set alarms on the Trainline for cheap tickets, they come up 13 weeks in advance and rarely pay more than £15/£20 per person each way. We too have found it is often cheaper to book from Leeds and just get a standard single from Bingley to there.

    Grand Central are often the cheapest from Bradford Interchange, but that journey takes an hour longer as it doesnt join the main line until Doncaster, going via Halifax, Brighouse, Mirfield & Pontecarlo.

    That sounds very plausible,to be totally honest I'm absolutely sick and tired of this points fiasco.
    I like many others just want to watch my team play but because we are up against small away allocations ticket schemes sadly have to be implemented.
    It's a shame ours is sadly failing at administration level in my opinion.

    You should now have your 'missing' points back.
