How do I use my vouchers?

At the station

Ask for your Back a Winner by train money off voucher when you buy an adult return rail ticket at any of the stations listed below. If you have bought your ticket online just show it to the booking office. They are not available on-train from conductors. If you are unable to obtain a voucher when starting your journey, please ask for one at the station ticket office on arrival (with the exception of Aintree, Cark & Cartmel or Pontefract which are unstaffed and Hexham which is closed on Sunday). Vouchers issued in this manner will need to be validated with the destination station stamp and endorsed with the name of the station you travelled from.
