Making the commute better

As more people start to use the trains again after the pandemic, Virgin Trains Ticketing has completed a study looking at the UK’s commuting habits. 

Half of commuters admit their journey is the worst part of their working day, so Virgin Trains Ticketing and Virgin Red are trying to make it just a little bit more rewarding for them, with points for travel, and free hot drinks this winter. 

Mark Plowright, director of Virgin Trains Ticketing commented: “Commuting is a necessity for many working adults, and as the research shows it's often the source of much frustration. 

“But it shouldn’t be such a nightmare – indeed travellers are likely to have lots of things they enjoy about their journey, it’s just that certain occurrences can ruin what should be a time to relax. We hope that booking via Virgin Trains Ticketing can make things just a little bit better for customers, as they earn points on their everyday travel, to enjoy on rewards.” 

So, whether it’s caffeine for the day ahead, hot chocolate to warm your cockles, or a cheeky latte, it’s on Virgin Red and Virgin Trains Ticketing this November. With thousands of hot drinks to be claimed there’s no better time to book your train travel.  

So, get booking with Virgin Trains Ticketing and enjoy a hot drink or three on Virgin Red, because being part of the Virgin Red family is all about making everyday moments a little bit sweeter, one little win at a time.
