Register with National Rail Enquiries to Win the Latest iPad
LONDON, April 18, 2012/PRNewswire/ --
Registering with National Rail Enquiries is the free and easy way to instantly access
personalised information about train journeys, and until Sunday 6th May, everyone who
registers for the first time will go into the draw to win a latest generation iPad, one of
10 Kindles or 75 iTunes vouchers worth GBP15.
Each weekday hundreds of thousands of people visit the National Rail Enquiries website
[http://www.nationalrail.co.uk ] to check train timetables, plan journeys and find cheap
fares on train tickets, but many are yet to take advantage of all the benefits that come
from creating a personal profile, including their own personalised homepage with instant
access to real time information about their favourite journeys.
Head of Online at National Rail Enquiries, Jason Webb, is keen to spread the word:
"Registering with National Rail Enquiries provides a convenient and easy way for people to
quickly find up-to-date information about their favourite train journeys, and we are
delighted to be offering some excellent prizes
[http://marketing.nationalrail.co.uk/tickets ] to encourage our customers to take advantage
of this free service."
The National Rail Enquiries website automatically creates a personalised homepage for
everyone who registers so they can instantly find the information they are most likely to
want each time they visit. Customers can save their regular and favourite journeys, and
create their own live departure board which provides real time travel information about
whether a service is running on time.
"Creating a personal live departure board is really easy. Customers can save up to
five of their favourite stations and then instantly view live departures and arrivals for
each train service, including details of any disruptions," explains Jason.
Everyone who uses the National Rail Enquiries website can sign up to receive real time
travel alerts if a train is late or a service has been cancelled, and registered customers
have the added benefit of being able to manage and check their alerts - whether text,
email or direct Twitter message - all in one place for greater convenience. Registered
passengers can also change the website's preferences to better manage the information they
receive on train times and fares.
"Innovation is high on the agenda at National Rail Enquiries. The team are constantly
looking for new ways to make travelling by train easier and to save people time and money.
We developed the personal profiles to make it even simpler for customers to find the
up-to-date information they need to catch the right train," concluded Jason Webb.
Passengers can register with National Rail Enquiries now for free at http://www.nationalrail.co.uk [../2011_EDB/www.nationalrail.co.uk ]. A name, email address
and password is all it takes to get started and all new customers who register before 6th
May 2012 will automatically be entered into a competition to win a latest generation iPad,
one of 10 Kindles or 75 iTunes vouchers worth GBP15.
