Virgin Trains Are Accepting Avocados In Place Of The Millennial Railcard

Avocado Millennial

Travel First Hass with Virgin Trains.

The hotly-anticipated ‘millennial railcard’, which gives 26-30 year olds 30% off train tickets, went on sale earlier this week. With demand so high, and only 10,000 cards on sale – the offer is currently being trialled – the website quickly crashed, causing much consternation from frustrated customers. And then the cards all sold out anyway.

There’s a glimmer of good news for those who missed out, however – Virgin Trains will, for one week only, be accepting avocados as an alternative railcard. Seriously.

Avocard

With the #avocard, you’ll get all the perks of the 26-30 railcard. Simply present an avocado in place of the railcard at any Virgin Trains West Coast station to get a 1/3 off our fares.

Virgin Trains West Coast destinations include Birmingham, Manchester, north Wales, Liverpool, Blackpool, Glasgow and Edinburgh; plenty of options for trips to the North, then. But if you’re veg-phobic or decidedly un-millennial, worry not: there are other offers to jump on at midnight tonight. The Virgin Trains Spring Sale is also launching at 00:01 on Thursday, March 15, with over 50% off standard and first-class tickets to the same set of destinations – you can book train tickets to Scotland for just £18. for example.
