Except -- not.

But I managed it in the end (even though you've opted to collect your tickets from the machine, you won't be allowed to proceed without an address in the UK -- and then when you get to the checkout, it won't validate your card details because the address is not the one your card is issued to, is it? So then you have to go through 5 more steps to get the address changed and accepted even though it's not a UK address, and all of this you have to figure out yourself because the web designers didn't think of it -- and then it tells you that the saver ticket you had selected half an hour earlier is suddenly no longer available, and you'll have to postpone your journey by an hour...), although now I'm not 100% sure whether the discounted ticket I bought is valid for the later journey's railway provider...

Anyway -- I expect that from today, my LJ will go on hiatus, so here's my usual disclaimer:

which, if everything goes as planned, should be in two weeks time!

I hate Q-Jump. I can't use their website because the stupid thing doesn't recognise my address (because the building is so new) and it doesn't give you the option of manually overriding it. I now have to go to the station if I want to buy tickets *eyeroll*

Oh, that's wonderful, considering you're the one that sent me the link in the first place! Haha!

It worked fine last Septembr, but I think they've revamped the site since then, and made it much more user-unfriendly. I was about ready to give up this morning, and just show up at the station on the day, but then I thought 'Saver Ticket, Saver Ticket' which gave me the incentive to try it one more time.

Yup, I used to use them all the time and then when I went to book my tickets for Liverpool I just couldn't

So, I apologise for sending you to a crap site. LOL

Well, I managed to order my ticket in the end, so I forgive you!

I didn't think you were coming here to sleep!

See you soon.

as a believer in karmic principles, i suspect your initial ticketing troubles means that you'll have a great holiday. i'll surely miss your posts; there's very few in LJland i read/hound these days.

I'm flattered :-)! I'll be back with regular -perhaps even daily- updates in 10 days or so.

Thank you! Common Rotation tonight, so I can safely say that fun will be had! ;-)

Cheers! No complaints so far...

Have fun, sweetie! And let's make a date for when you get back...it's been too long!
Apr. 21st, 2005 01:18 pm (UTC)
It certainly has been. I'll give you a call as soon as I get back!
