School summer holidays are often the time where travel prices soar, but Stansted Express are bucking this trend to introduce a summer-only offer, with fares cut by up to 60%.
Stansted Express is the fastest way to travel between central London and Stansted Airport. The company has brought in a new Family Offer Ticket which is available until the end of September.
The great value ticket, introduced in time for the great summer getaway, means that one adult and up to three children can travel from London to Stansted Airport for just £29.90 return – a saving of up to £44.85 on Standard Class Return.
For two adults and up to three children, the price is barely more than £10 per person at £52 return – a saving of up to £52.65 compared to the price of a Standard Class Return.
These special offer fares are available until Monday 30 September for journeys starting from London Liverpool Street, Stratford or Tottenham Hale to Stansted Airport.
The offer is available online only, from the Stansted Express website, and families must travel together on the train.
What did the officials say?
David Metherell, Head of Commercial Development at Stansted Express said:
“We know how costs mount up when going away with your family, especially in the school summer holidays.
“But we’re pleased to be making travel in the summer much cheaper for families – and travelling by train to the airport is so much easier than taking the car. You don’t have to risk the traffic, find a parking space, and then make your way to the terminal.
“Our Stansted Airport rail station is right underneath the airport terminal and just a few minutes’ walk from the entrance.
“We’re offering people the best start to their holidays.”
