Disadvantages: A little tatty
I always use Virgin trains when even I travel for things like holidays. I recently went to Chester for a few days and the train price was very good; £20 return for just over two hours of travelling in total. It was also good that the train station in Chester was over the road from our hotel. However I was slightly disappointed when travelling to Chester because I thought I'd be travelling on a Virgin train when it was actually an Arriva. On the plus side, the train on return was a Virgin train.
I find the trains to be of a reasonable standard for the price. The one I travelled in was a little tatty with quite a lot of dirty seats and a lot of marks on the walls etc. I know this because most seats were empty because our travelling time was just after nine at night. This was also good because it meant our travelling could be peaceful with less stops at other stations making the journey time faster.
Overall, I would recommend Virgin trains to anyone wanting a reasonable price train ticket as long as they don't mind the odd bit of untidiness.
Summary: Cheap easy travel
