We are contacting all customers who have advance bookings and look forward to the resumption of services.

Groupon Vouchers

The railway will honour Groupon vouchers for a period of 6 months from the date of contact to us by way of exchange for Advance Day Rover e-tickets.

Customers wishing to take advantage of this offer should e-mail us with the following information:

  • Your name
  • The e-mail address you wish for your replacement e-ticket to be sent to
  • The Security Code from the voucher

We will then redeem your voucher and send our replacement tickets which can be used for one day of travel on the railway up until the expiry date shown on them. The same terms as your Groupon voucher apply - not to be used on Derbyshire Countryman dining services, Santa Experience trains or evening specials.

Alternatively you can call us on 01629 823076 - please note our telephone lines are receiving high call volumes so you may wish to leave a message.

The railway would like to encourage customers to take advantage of this offer as soon as possible without waiting until near to the voucher expiration to assist us during this difficult period of trading.

Thank you.
