LONDON, April 20, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Redspottedhanky.com, the online travel retailer, is now accepting Tesco Clubcard points. This means households can simultaneously receive Clubcard discounts on their train tickets, whilst earning loyalty points from redspottedhanky.com to put towards future travel.
The tie up means Tesco Clubcard vouchers can be exchanged for Clubcard rewards - worth three times as much - to redeem against train tickets purchased through redspottedhanky.com
In addition, customers will simultaneously earn loyalty points from redspottedhanky.com to put towards future travel.
The deal offers fantastic value and flexibility - GBP10 in Clubcard vouchers can be exchanged online at tesco.com/clubcard/rewards for GBP30 in Clubcard rewards to put towards rail travel.
"The cost of rail travel is inevitably rising, and our customers have told us they want a better deal. So we are making sure UK families have access to the best value rail travel in order to keep the nation moving. Unlike other travel retailers, we do not charge any booking or credit card fees or delivery fees (except next day delivery) - and now that we are part of the Tesco Clubcard rewards scheme, there are even greater savings to be made on rail travel," says Andrea Morgan director at redspottedhanky.com.
A return journey by train to London ( http://www.redspottedhanky.com/trains/trains-to/london/ ) from Birmingham for a family of four could cost up to GBP203.50 if booked on the day of travel. But if booked in advance through redspottedhanky.com for an advance fare (http://www.redspottedhanky.com/about-us/80-per-cent-savings-on-advanced-tickets/), the cost could be 93% less. The use of Clubcard points means even further savings.

A Tesco Clubcard spokesperson says: "The Clubcard reward scheme is about bringing people great value on a huge range of days out, experiences, and other indulging treats. For families in particular, rail travel can get expensive so being able to make savings on ticket prices simply by doing the weekly shop is a win win situation."
Redspottedhanky.com also offers its customers loyalty points as part of the site's own scheme, allowing further points for redemption against future rail travel. These can be combined with Clubcard rewards to make significant savings on tickets.
Andrea Morgan, director at redspottedhanky.com, said: "At redspottedhanky.com we are committed to providing the best price on rail journeys. We are dedicated to offering a world class service. By not charging a booking fee and welcoming Clubcard points we are continuing to make booking rail travel in the UK cheaper, simpler and quicker than ever before."
Atos Origin, a leading international IT services provider specialising in hi-tech transactional services, has radically developed its strategy to grow its revenue by venturing into the B2C arena with the launch of redspottedhanky.com, the first consumer service from the IT B2B player.
Redspottedhanky.com is an online travel retailer, providing an easy way for leisure and business travellers to compare and book cheap train tickets (http://www.redspottedhanky.com/ ) online, and to save up to 80% on the cost of tickets booked in advance. Most notably, redspottedhanky.com offers something truly unique when buying train tickets online: it is the first ever British online retailer to offer loyalty points that can be redeemed against future train travel for any journey in Great Britain.
For regular train travellers in these cash-strapped times, participation in the loyalty scheme would allow them to earn points for redemption against future rail travel and be rewarded beyond the price of a single ticket.
