Collect Nectar points every time you buy train tickets online with TransPennine Express and then redeem them on a range of offers and attractions. Not a bad deal, right?
Visit My Account and link your card by entering your Nectar number. Every time you buy train tickets online you'll automatically collect 2 Nectar points for every £1 you spend.
You'll even earn Nectar points on Season Tickets - 50 points for a weekly Season Ticket, 200 points for a monthly Season Ticket and 2,500 points for an annual Season Ticket.
You'll only get Nectar points when you buy train tickets, not extras such as car parking, bus tickets or additional travelcards.
Yes. Download the TPExpress app and sign in or create an account. So long as your Nectar card is linked with your account, you'll automatically collect points on app purchases.
The Nectar app is a great way to check where else you can collect Nectar points, what your points are worth and where you can spend them. Get the app and see what's on offer this week. And next week. And the week after that.
Once you start regularly booking train tickets with us, your points balance will grow even quicker. You’ll soon be spending your points on anything from romantic meals, family days out and even flights abroad (don't forget to buy an Airport Advance train ticket to help you on your way).
You'll need a Nectar card to collect points. If you don't already have one, you can sign up for a Nectar card here
