- Excellent ServiceBy 04 March 2015aged 45 to 54Female
Using Tesco Clubcard Vouchers means I am able to afford to travel by train. Red Spotty Hanky give an excellent service, the booking process is very easy and so is using your vouchers. If you choose to have them posted to you they arrive within 2 days. I certainly would recommend that others use this service and product.Date used : 01/03/2015
- Missing TicketBy Oddball02 March 2015aged 55 to 64Male
I have used the Red Spoted Hanky service a few times and have been pleased how good it is.However on my last purchase I went to retrieve my tickets from the machine and I was one ticket short.Theprocess of retrieving the last ticket is not simple.I could not get it from the station.You have to get in touch with Red spotted Hanky and download a form and send it to them with the relevant information.After posting it to them I waited a week and called them to find out that they had not received it.I was then informed I could scan it to them.Ok for me because I have the scanner to do it maybe for people who do not might prove more difficult.Date used : 02/03/2015

I really like using Redspottedhanky and Clubcard Boosts, unfortunately I did not realise there was a time limit on the boosts within Redspottedhanky, therefore I have put my boosts in too soon for my intended train journey. Looks like I may be using them to venture to alternative places earlier and unexpectedly. If only there was a way to reverse this boost.
- Room for ImprovementBy Overdee26 Febuary 2015aged 55 to 64Male
I recently came across Red Spotted Hanky and realised I could use Tesco vouchers to gain credit against the fares quoted. In principle this is a good idea based on 2X face value that is applied. In practice, you cannot use the Tesco vouchers right away, you have to wait a few days for them to be applied to the Red Spotted Hanky account. In my case I spotted an advance ticket which was a very low price but by the time the Tesco vouchers had been applied and I was able to purchase a ticket using the credit from the vouchers the ticket prices had increased by £12, thereby destroying a hefty percentage of the benefits of using the vouchers in the first place. If you could use the vouchers directly it would be a huge improvement.Date used : 16/02/2015

I have used this service for a few years helping pay for fares for my student sons. I have just converted £50 into £100 of rail tickets IN ONE TRANSACTION for a journey for my husband and myself. On purchasing the train tickets I had £22 left over which I learned would be lost if it wasn't used up on this purchase - I bought a couple of London travel cards for the future, to use up the balance. What I now understand is that it is more useful to make several smaller purchases. The RSH vouchers last for several months.Date used : 19/02/2015

Wished to visit a friend near Gerrards Cross from Norwich. Due to warning of bad weather decided to go by train rather than drive, What a good decision. I worked out my travel plan and various changes on the underground and main line station and it was so easy. The train from Norwich was on time and all my changes happened with very short waiting times. The only minus would be if you had heavy luggage as there were a few stairs involved. The whole journey took just over three hours which would have been the same if I had driven, that's if there weren't any hold ups on the M25! Plus the stress! And the final massive plus was I used my booster points from Tescos which halved the price. Certainly would have cost a lot more to drive. Plus again the stress!Date used : 26/01/2015

This is a good way to use your vouchers - but now redspottedhanky have added on booking fees and postage it is not quite so good as it was. What about doing occasional offers where you offer 3 times the value -maybe just for a limited time.

Ultimately the deals worked and I got my train tickets. However, it took over a week to get any kind of action from redspottedhanky.com.

A painful experience, and unlikely to use this one again.Date used : 21/01/2014

Used myTesco vouchers a number of times with Redspottedhanky. I have done both types of deal a number of times. Either I've covered the total cost of tickets using the vouchers or done a partial payment topping up with a debit card payment on the balance. Both ways have been great. Redspottedhanky offer discounted tickets anyway so you start by paying less than the going rate for the tickets.......then the Tesco voucher scheme kicks in reducing it even further. Saves you money twice over. Easy-peasy! What's not to like?Date used : 28/01/2015

I always save my Tesco Clubcard vouchers and use them to purchase train tickets from Red Spottted Hanky. Train fares can be so expensive, so for me this is a great offer as most of the time it means I can travel for free. The Red Spotted Hanky site is quick and easy to use and the e-voucher usually appears in my account within a day or two. I would recommend this to anyone and I am already looking forward to having enough vouchers to book another trip.Date used : 25/01/2015
- Poor systemBy murrayt25 January 2015aged 65 or overMale
My experience is different from most of the others. I got my credit on the redspottedhanky site after 7 days, not the “up to 72 hours” they talk about. (Goodness knows why it should take 72 hours to get a credit on the site in the first place.) When I had rung after the 3 days to ask what was happening, they admitted they were having problems with Tesco vouchers and to take screenshots of the prices then available, so that if I suffered loss the matter could “be put to management”. I did manage to make the bookings I originally intended and so far as I can remember, the prices were the same, so I did not lose out, but there was the hassle. The one other time I used the redspottedhanky site, again redeeming Tesco vouchers, a year or two ago, the site was not then working properly (just plain over-loaded I think) and I was on that occasion given some credit to compensate me for the hassle. Quite apart from my unfortunate experience on the two occasions on which I have used redspottedhanky, I don’t find their site as easy to use as some other train booking sites.

- Not as good as they used to beBy Ginnymay01 December 2014aged 55 to 64Female
I have been using my Tesco vouchers to obtain rail tickets for some time. Originally, you could get 3 times the value of the vouchers in ticket prices, which was a brilliant deal. I also seem to remember the tickets being a bit cheaper than other sites if you booked in advance, and they lasted for ages before expiring. Now you get twice the value of the vouchers in ticket prices, the prices are the same as all the other train websites, and they expire after a much shorter time. In the past, I used redspottedhanky even if I didn't have any Tesco vouchers left to use, but would probably not do so now as they have started charging a booking fee, which makes them dearer than the other sites. It is still a good deal from Tesco, just not quite as good as it was. The redspottedhanky site is easy and quick to use, very user-friendly. You do have to allow a bit of time for your deal to go through, though. It usually comes by next day, and you can get your ticket with a code at the station, but you'd be panicking waiting for it to go through if your had to travel the next day. One drawback is the need to use your credit card in the ticket machine at the station to get the ticket, though no money is taken from it. This means that if you want to book for someone else, eg a teen, you have to give them your credit card to get the ticket, which is not a good thing. I haven't worked out a way around that, there may be oneDate used : 11/11/2014
- Red Spotted Hanky (RSH) + and -By bucketlistman201430 November 2014aged 65 or overMale
I use this method for train travel all the time because obviously with rail fares being so extraordinarily expenses these days (Nov 2014) anything that can reduce the costs has to be good. At one time the irritating thing about RDH was that they were slow in getting the notification to the client (us) that the E-voucher was in the RDS account - but to be fair to them - that has much improved and it may be as quick as a day. I have had occasion to speak to a customer service rep once or twice and I got the same girl each time (maybe they have few staff or just coincidence) and frankly she had an attitude problem in that she made it obvious by her manner & approach that anything asked was an irritation for her. She was condescending and dismissive in manner and clearly was trying to put over that the punter (you & me that is) was an idiot for asking anything and that she would condescend to casually answer it without any respect to the questioner. I almost got the impression that it was because I was a Tesco customer (i.e. getting freebies). Of course we all pay for I one way or another. I work in I.T. and the RSH website is a bit un-user-friendly in my view (not very well designed) and to find the e-voucher section is not a walk in the park by any means - so please RSH - look at a redesign to highlight easily where to view one's e-vouchers. The concept of RSH's tie-up with Tesco is brilliant however. A BIG TIP for all rail travellers whether RSH or otherwise. To save money (or vouchers) really research online your journey options and consider splitting the journey ticket-wise and mostly 2 singles are cheaper than returns. There are many websites now that specialise in journey splitting etc. The RSH website does NOT always offer the cheapest fare - trust me on this! Trouble is you are obliged (to get the deal) to use them of course! Overall rating for RSH = 8 out of 10.Date used : 14/11/2014
- A good way to use your points.By Lukeye29 November 2014
The exchange website is slightly confusing as to whether the figure chosen is the total of Clubcard Card points being submitted or the total of Red Spotted credit required. I have noticed that Red Spotted removes the booking fee if you book trains using only credit from Tesco points. Therefore I shall only use them when I have such credits, as I do not like booking fees. I do not go to my local Tesco and expect to be charged an extra "purchase fee" at the till. The public seem to like to use heavily advertised sites such as thetrainline.com which charge hefty fees, and they do not appear to know that there are many train booking sites which charge nothing. These may be the same people who buy advertised branded medicines for five times the price of the identical non-advertised substance on the same pharmacy shelf.
- EXCELLENT USE OF TESCO POINTSBy Goodgie29 November 2014aged 55 to 64Male
My wife and self have had several really good days out this year getting train tickets via red spotted hanky, with double value for the points into the bargain. On top of that we have senior Railcards so get about one-third off the usual price too. As you can also obtain the railcards with Tesco points it's even better.

There is a small booking fee now but the fact I'm using "free" money doesn't bother me. I would definitely recommend this to any clubcard users.

The obvious advantage of using Clubcard points to pay for train tickets is that it is money off. I am an occasional customer of redspottedhanky, choosing to only use it now when I have Tesco vouchers to use. Otherwise I use the train operator's booking site as they do not charge a booking fee, plus they give Nectar points on purchases. redspottedhanky have only recently started charging a booking fee. Their ticket prices are the same as other on line sites, including the train operator's booking site but the difference is the booking fee.Date used : 31/10/2014

Before using your clubcard vouchers to buy Red Spotted Hanky vouchers, would suggest you look at other companies first.

I am basing this review on my purchase last year and that was excellent. However after reading the other reviews I'm concerned about a couple of things.

I have used this twice now and found it quite easy so long as you read all the small print and don't rush it. The voucher code came through in a couple of days so I could pick up the tickets from the machine. I would recommend going to pick the tickets up before the actual journey in case there's a glitch. I would also recommend ringing the helpline in the Spotted Hanky "contact us" bit if you're not sure about anything because they are very helpful and answer quite quickly. Would definitely recommend this deal- would have given it five stars but I lost my left over points on spotted hanky, they'd either expired or the policy changed but I don't remember getting any warning about it, so make sure you exchange points as near to the ticket price amount as you can to avoid losing out.

- Great Service from Red Spotted HankyBy sedberghuk06 November 2014aged 55 to 64Male
We've been using Red Spotted Hanky for a few years and found the system easy to use and a great saving on train fares. We also have a Two Together rail card which we use in conjunction with the Tesco savings. In fact, we keep an amount in the Red Spotted Hanky account in case we need train tickets in a hurry. Being able to pick the tickets up from the station avoids the postage charges and I've often collected tickets from a station close to my place of work rather than collecting them on the day from the station I'm travelling from, just in case we are on the last minute getting to the station. I've booked a cycle space on many occasions and most train companies allow you to do this and the cycles spaces can be booked via Red Spotted Hanky. We've taken a tandem on Virgin Trains on a couple of occasions too. Great service.Date used : 02/10/2014
- Excellent train ticket providerBy SteadyS05 November 2014aged 55 to 64Female
Easy to use website, good prices and tickets arrive by post quickly. Used them several times before and always efficient. Tesco tokens go straight to your red spotted hanky account , although may take a day or so, easy to then use towards your tickets.Date used : 14/10/2014

- Less money, More visits!By Salza02 November 2014aged 55 to 64Female
My daughter lives in London and the rest of the family in Devon. I always use my Tesco vouchers for Red Spotted Hanky as this means my daughter gets her train travel for a lot less enabling her to visit more often. The vouchers are usually credited to RSH within 48hrs at the most from when I order them. She is visiting at Xmas and only has to pay 15% of the actual fare!Date used : 19/08/2014

- Beware faulty ticket machines!By Mumofteenager31 October 2014aged 45 to 54Female
The exchange of vouchers and ordering of tickets all went very smoothly. However, when my son tried to collect the tickets at the station, due to some technical fault, he was unable to do so. Although redspottedhanky do provide a number to call in such instances they were of no help at all, suggesting that he go to a different railway station and attempt to collect his tickets there. I have no idea whether this is any worse than any other internet ticket sales company but I would far rather have paid full price and avoided the stress, hassle and inconvenience that redspottedhanky's lack of customer support caused. An unfortunate first solo train journey for my teenage son!Date used : 24/10/2014

- Not as good as it wasBy alerick28 October 2014
Easy website and does provide some discount but disappointed that you are now are charged £1 booking fee and have to use all the voucher at once.
- Changed for the worseBy JohnK27 October 2014aged 65 or overMale
I was very disappointed to find that redspottedhanky have started to charge a booking fee and a fee for posting out tickets. This removes two key advantages they had over other booking sites. Worse still, you do not find out about the fees until you have almost completed your booking. They also do not always find the best options for routes and prices. I will continue to use them when I want to use Clubcard tokens for my rail travel, but I would not use them for cash purchases.Date used : 02/10/2014

This was the first time I have used this exchange facility. The process was very easy. You do have to remember exchange clubcard vouchers for RSH vouchers well in advance of travel, but otherwise it is a fantastic deal and in combination with the exchange of clubcard vouchers for a railcard this saves on clubcard vouchers too- absolutely surperb!Date used : 20/10/2014

- Easy way to cheap train travelBy Teejay1324 October 2014aged 45 to 54Female
I have twice exchanged vouchers to use at Redspottedhanky and it couldn't be easier. The vouchers were easy to double up on the Tesco site and confimation came through very quickly. The points were on the Redspotted site within an hour and booking with them is very simple. We saved just over £30 both times and would do it again.Date used : 06/10/2014
- Could be betterBy minesacider24 October 2014aged 55 to 64Female
I used Tesco vouchers recently to buy a day return ticket and was happy with the ease of booking and the facility to pick up the tickets at my local station. However I was not so happy when I discovered the friends I was travelling with had paid far less than I had for their tickets - in one case half as much! So much for the 2 for 1 offer; I might just as well have got my ticket somewhere cheaper and used my clubcard voucher to buy groceries!Date used : 05/10/2014
- Good purchaseBy Lovetosave22 October 2014
I've used my vouchers in this way on a few occasions now and it has always worked well. It's a pity you now only get twice the value when it used to be four times when the offer first started, but it's still a good saving. Disappointed red spotted hanky have started charging a booking fee - the fact that they didn't gave them an edge over the train line. Their customer service has always been good.
- Let the train take the strainBy Cygnus22 October 2014aged 45 to 54Male
A good offer despite the recent introduction of fees by RSH. We have used this offer many times and never had a problem with it, I think the longest we have waited is 2 days for the voucher to be vaialable in RSH. I generally use this for weekend breaks and in conjunction with the TwoTogether Railcard we can generally travel 1st class for less than the price of what a standard ticket would have cost - all paid for by Tesco Clubcard.Date used : 11/10/2014

- Very useful for cheap/free train travelBy barley19 October 2014aged 45 to 54Female
These vouchers are very useful as they can make train travel much cheaper, and even free. However, you only get double the value of the clubcard vouchers; it would be an even better offer if you got three or four times the value, like some other clubcard deals. The vouchers are easy to use, but do take up to 72 hours to show up on your RSH account, so you have to remember to order them in plenty of time. It would be better if they were put onto the RSH account straight away. Just one negative about RSH: I am very disappointed that they have recently introduced a £1 booking fee.Date used : 03/10/2014
- A really good dealBy suepud18 October 2014aged 45 to 54Female
I was really pleased with this offer, I took my daughter to Birmingham so ordered the tickets online and collected on the day from the machine at the station, very straightforward and the boost doubled the money on the voucher.Date used : 18/10/2014
- Still worth it but not as good as it was.........By LookClosely5018 October 2014aged 45 to 54Male
RSH still have the advantage of accepting 2 4 1 on Clubcard. Other than this, their recent intro of a booking fee and charges for mailing the tickets (some people do not have a machine to collect from, at their local station) has put a further dent in the value of this product. Would not use at all if it were not for the Clubcard option and would only use that on more expensive tickets....Date used : 18/10/2014
- Worked very well- got tickets at local station.By Gibgill17 October 2014aged 65 or overMale
We ordered the tickets- paid all with Clubcard points. Very straightforward- they sent a code so that we could pick up the tickets from the machine at our local station. So we had them ready for when we travelled. Excellent service that we had used before.Date used : 24/09/2014

- Still great value for moneyBy RosieB17 October 2014aged 55 to 64Female
I won't be put off by RSH introduction of a £1 booking fee. I stilll think this deal is great value for money. They offer similar ticket prices, incl advance fares, to the main train companies and other booking agents. Using Clubcard Boost means the tickets are half price. Procedure is straightforward - exchange your clubcard voucher via Tesco, wait about 24hrs for the RSH email with voucher code to arrive, then book your tickets. It takes a little longer the first time you use it as you have to set up a RSH account.You can keep any surplus amount in your RSH account for next time or pay any difference by cash. Only tricky part is estimating the value of clubcard vouchers to exchange if you want an advance fare, in case the price goes up while you are waiting for your RSH voucher. In practice this has only happened once to me and by a small amount which I paid by cash. You can have the tickets posted to you if there is enough time before travelling or collect them from the station collection point.Date used : 04/09/2014
- I now go by TrainBy Peege16 October 2014aged 55 to 64Male
I have been exchanging Clubcard vouchers for twice their value at redspottedhanky, for a few years now. I like the ease of planning a journey on the website. I usually order the tickets on the same day of travel, and collect them from my Railway Station ticket machine within an hour. I now use trains far more often, for days out, going on shopping trips, and even Weekend Breaks. Stress free from traffic, no fuel costs, no parking fees, all on loyalty points. Shame about the Booking Fee, I hope they keep it low.
- Still the best way to spend pointsBy CJFM16 October 2014
Multiplying the vouchers up here is great value. A fee has now been introduced, but since the train tickets I buy are fairly high value, this is still the best way for me to spend my points. For people buying lower-cost tickets the balance might be different. The conversion is fairly quick, the ticket delivery speedy - think a week or so ahead and it all seems to work fine. If this deal went, Clubcard points would be worth much less to me, it's the most useful, functional thing on here. I just don't do a lot of days out at theme parks or hotel stays!
- Short Notice on New Booking FeeBy Lyyn16 October 2014
Credit in Redspottedhanky account was updated in 24 hours so good on that. However, the introduction of New Booking Fee was sudden and took effect within a short period of time after voucher was requested. Not fair on those who had already exchanged for credit.
- Pretty easy transactionBy LADYANT15 October 2014aged 55 to 64Female
Very good value I think and voucher codes came quickly...red spotted website easy to use but I messed up with the ordering of tickets for disabled son supposed to get discount for him and the carer but only got discount on his..instructions for that should be easier or maybe i'm just thick!! Still saved a fortune tho'.Date used : 09/10/2014
- Need tickets in a hurry? Don't use this!By SussexGuy14 October 2014aged 35 to 44Male
This is a good deal, especially for longer journeys when you have to take into account the ticket fee. HOWEVER, they don't tell you until you complete the clubcard boost that they don't show in your red spotted hanky account for 72 hours! So don't use this offer if you're intending to travel within a week.Date used : 14/10/2014
- Good use of Clubcard pointsBy LindaM13 October 2014aged 45 to 54Female
I've used clubcard points to buy redspottedhanky tickets lots over the past few years. Very good value at half price. Website is easy to use and tickets arrive in good time. Need to plan a bit in advance to allow for points to be converted to vouchers and appear in the website account and then tickets posted but that's no real problem. A great saving on train tickets, but will have to review this now, as a booking fee is to be charged. Might be better value to spend the clubcard vouchers on something else and buy train tickets direct.Date used : 27/09/2014
- No longer worth it with the booking feeBy tescoclubcarduser13 October 2014aged 25 to 34Female
This used to be a great way to save using Clubcard Boost until RSH introduced a booking fee on all orders, which dents the saving you can make, so unfortunately I won't use them again and wouldn't recommend them to others.Date used : 02/10/2014
- Superb dealBy savvy6612 October 2014aged 65 or overMale
Redspottedhanky are the only reason I shop at Tesco's. The boost deal makes train travel so much more maneageable. I suspect if this deal ceased to be available or was in any way downgraded, many current Tesco shoppers would go elsewhere. So let's hope that doesn't happen!!Date used : 12/10/2014
- Travel made cheaperBy Susan040411 October 2014aged 55 to 64Female
Using my vouchers to reduce the cost of train travel was fairly straightforward. Easy to enter the details of the valid vouchers and made to travelling costs more affordable. I was a bit worried when the code to use the boost didn't come immediately because I thought I might not be able to book the train at the same price and it would go up. However the codes arrived the next day and all was well. 'Red spotted hanky' utilised my codes and automatically reduced the cost accordingly.Date used : 19/09/2014

Never used my Clubcard points for train travel before but will definitely be doing it again. Easy to book and tickets arrived within a couple of days. Great savings on transfers to and from the airport. Like the way you can use both vouchers and cash if you haven't enough. Used my Tesco Credit card for the balance so double bonus! Would definitely recommend to others.Date used : 21/10/2014
- Saving me so much money & so easy!By Frosticles10 October 2014aged 55 to 64Female
I save my Clubcard points up & use them only for Redspottedhanky train tickets as it is such a saving for us when we visit our son in London, paying the majority of the cost of the ticket in vouchers. It's quite straightforward to order & the tickets arrive well in time.
- Excellent service from both providersBy Crompton09 October 2014aged 65 or overFemale

Clubcard boost makes this a very cheap way to buy tickets. Just need to plan ahead a bit as it takes a few days for points to appear in the account. Red spotted hanky site is easy enough to use. I don't travel by train very much, but when I do I always get my tickets this way and will continue to do so.Date used : 01/10/2014

Great way to spend your clubcard vouchers. Once the e voucher is activated ( this may take a few days) you can use it for part/ full payment for your journey. Easy to use for free travel!
