Tesco shoppers set to save on travel

UK travellers can now save more money on their rail travel thanks to Tesco’s new partnership with online travel retailer redspottedhanky.com

The tie up means Tesco Clubcard vouchers can be exchanged for Clubcard rewards - worth three times as much - to redeem against train tickets purchased through redspottedhanky.com

In addition, customers will simultaneously earn loyalty points from redsottedhanky.com to put towards future travel.

The deal offers fantastic value and flexibility – £10 in Clubcard vouchers can be exchanged online at tesco.com/clubcard/rewards for £30 in Clubcard rewards to put towards rail travel.

“The cost of rail travel is inevitably rising, and our customers have told us they want a better deal. So we are making sure UK families have access to the best value rail travel in order to keep the nation moving. Unlike other travel retailers, we do not charge any booking or credit card fees or delivery fees (except next day delivery) – and now that we are part of the Tesco Clubcard rewards scheme, there are even greater savings to be made on rail travel,” says Andrea Morgan director at redspottedhanky.com.

A return train journey from Birmingham to London for a family of four could cost up to £203.50 if booked on the day of travel. But if booked in advance through redspottedhanky.com for an advance fare, the cost could be 93% less. If you use your Clubcard points, this means even further savings.

A Tesco Clubcard spokesperson says: “The Clubcard reward scheme is about bringing people great value on a huge range of days out, experiences, and other indulging treats. For families in particular, rail travel can get expensive so being able to make savings on ticket prices simply by doing the weekly shop is a win win situation!”

Redspottedhanky.com also offers its customers loyalty points as part of the site’s own scheme, allowing further points for redemption against future rail travel. These can be combined with Clubcard rewards to make significant savings on tickets.

Andrea Morgan, director at redspottedhanky.com, says “At redspottedhanky.com we are committed to providing the best price on rail journeys. We are dedicated to offering a world class service. By not charging a booking fee and welcoming Clubcard points we are continuing to make booking rail travel in the UK cheaper, simpler and quicker than ever before.”
