    Bought red spotted hanky rail tickets with my Tesco club card vouchers for my sons holiday via Heathrow. It was really easy to do & from start to finish it only took 48hrs for the vouchers to be sent to my account. I then opted to collect from my local station so no extra postage costs either.

    Good way to use Tesco vouchers to save money on train tickets. Yes they charge a booking fee, but you still save money. Money was in my account in less than 24 hours, then used it towards train tickets, paying the balance with credit card. Will use this again.

    It's nice to know my spending pays me back with travel, especially now that I have a Tesco mobile contract too. Shame about the booking fee and not being able to book seats (and I wish points were still tripled!), but it's still worth using.

  • red spotted hanky
    By tortoise27 March 2015aged 45 to 54Female

    This is a very good deal, which I have used a lot. It used to be even better a few years ago when you got three times the value of clubcard vouchers, but now double the value is still pretty good. Booking train tickets on red spotted hanky is straightforward and you can either collect them from station ticket machines or, if there is time, have them delivered by first class post at no extra cost.

  • Vouchers only valid for one transaction
    By Petal5526 March 2015aged 65 or overFemale

    I purchased tickets which totalled a lower price than the voucher. The remaining voucher amount could not be used and was forfeited. In future I will exchange smaller amounts on Clubcard Boost. Otherwise the system has always operated smoothly.

  • Great Value
    By NEVillan26 March 2015aged 55 to 64Male

    I have used RSH in conjunction with Tesco Clubcard many times and as I also have a Senior Railcard the savings I've made are fantastic. I always check the Train Operators web site first (Virgin East Coast and Cross Country mostly in my case) and the prices are usually the same on RSH. However I am disappointed that although when booking with RSH you are automatically reserved a seat you cannot then change it which you can do when booking via the Train Operator directly. Maybe a relatively minor disadvantage but nevertheless a disadvantage. Also I find the introduction of the £1 Booking Fee a little irritating but overall the value is tremendous.

  • Disappointed: Couldn't Reserve a Seat with RSH
    By SaverSims24 March 2015aged 45 to 54Female

    I've used RSH a couple of times before, no problem. This time, however, I have redeemed my Tesco vouchers to part fund 2 return tickets Ashford International to Edinburgh. I can buy the tickets, but there are no seats available to reserve. But if you look on the Virgin Train website (the train supplier) for exactly the same train times, I CAN reserve seats. I spoke to a very helpful man at customer services at RSH who said that they were like a travel agency and are only allocated a certain number of reservable seats, so when they are gone they are gone. However, this does not mean that there are no more reservable seats available on the train. So customers beware!

  • Fantastic free train fare
    By Cambridgelady21 March 2015aged 55 to 64Female

    I spoke to my friend she was ill and needed a friend to help her. I Exchanged my vouchers and within 24 hours had the funds to go and visit. I am the greatest friend in the world. Travelled from Cambridge to Penrith free, what value thanks to Tesco. People are complaining about the administration charge that is nothing compared to what you save. As for paying postage you can pick the tickets up from the station free of charge if necessary. You can use your railcard as well, which can be bought through Tesco Clubcard points which saves you a third off the ticket price as well. Tesco Clubcard scheme is the best and I am very satisfied and I am thankful for their Clubcard scheme. I would and do recommend Red Spotted Hanky.com to all my friends and family, also Tesco Clubcard.

    By annie1621 March 2015

    Went like a dream once I had found red spotted hanky on the Club Card Boost web page. Changed my vouchers for an e-voucher and when it landed in my inbox, booked my train journey following the link. Printed off my email and presented it at the train station to collect my tickets and travelled for free! Don't try to do this the day before you travel as they warn it could take a few days to get your e-voucher

  • First class!

    Lost a star rating cos it took 14 hours for the vouchers to show in my account but on saying that saved loads (used in conjunction with the rail card offer) so travelled 1st class & still cheaper! Chose to collect tickets at the station - it's free!

    Rather unfortunate as other reviewers have stated that you have to find out the hard way that vouchers only have a shelf life of six months and that you receive no warning that they are about to expire, also not very happy with booking fee. Will continue to use until there is an alternitive

  • Not as good a deal as previously - extra fees etc.
    By AndyP18 March 2015aged 45 to 54Male

    I still use RedSpottedHanky, but the deal with Clubcard has got worse. Only 2x value (used to be 3x) and recently introduced a £1 booking fee AND they now charge ANOTHER £1 to send your tickets - these both used to be free. Competitors are overtaking them now with deals that do not include these fees. Disappointing.

    I like the style and the facility to find the best balance of price of tickets versus time of trains. The easiest to use of all the booking facilities. I was unaware of the reported booking fee and this slightly spoils the relationship - however, even if it is true, I will continue to use SPH, as long as the voucher scheme continues.

    We use the train a lot so, for us, this is an excellent way to get free rail tickets.Agree that it is a shame that the site now charges an admin fee but it is only £! and is only charged per transaction not per rail ticket so I bought several tickets for the one fee.

    This is not as good a deal as it seems ...many other train booking sites don't charge a booking fee and some offer free !st class postage. The Loyalty scheme isn't that good either. You need to use them within a certain time scale or loose them ....without any warnings !...Its a shame this is the only booking site for rail travel that Tesco use ! you makes your choice !

    Red Spotted Hanky allows me to purchase cheap advance tickets on Transpenine Express for haf price using my vouchers. It is worth paying an extra £1 to have the ticketts sent to you by 1st class post. If there is a railcard right for you buy one before purchasing your tickets and you save another third!

    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 Improvement
    By 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.

    Previously this site was ideal for planning my rail travel and the subsequent purchase of tickets. However, since the introduction of a handling fee, I now only use this site to use my Tesco boost vouchers, following which I then revert to other TOC's web sites for my rail travel, where no handling fees are charged.

    By Inim21 Febuary 2015aged 55 to 64Female

    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.

    By 12 Febuary 2015aged 65 or overFemale

    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!

    We spend our Clubcard vouchers on rail tickets. RSH have started charging booking fees now which takes away some of their value. It would be good if we could have x4 now and again like it used to be. Easy enough and straightforward to do online though same-day transactions would be nice.

    By 06 Febuary 2015aged 45 to 54Female

    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. This is the only thing I have done with my Tesco vouchers for the last few years as my husband and I at the moment live in different places - makes my visits cheaper!

    By ib1405 Febuary 2015

    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. My order did not get processed and after multiple phone calls, each with a different explanation, I finally got someone to get my clubcard points converted to their e-voucher. A painful experience, and unlikely to use this one again.

    By LesleyM04 Febuary 2015aged 55 to 64Female

    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?

    I have used Tesco club card towards rail fares before and it has been fine, but this time I followed all the instructions to the best of my ability but it took payment from my card without taking anything off. So now I'm left with unused tokens for Redspottedhanky but I don't need a train again for a while. Bit of a waste of time.

  • A great offer
    By Mistymus29 January 2015aged 55 to 64Female

    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.

  • Poor system
    By 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.

    By JSBR11 December 2014aged 65 or overMale

    The actual process of finding train times, and booking tickets, is similar to a number of other sites; the benefit is the 2x mark up in the value of Tesco Vouchers. This part of the process is very easy, and pretty fast. The box to check on the Red Spotted Handky site could be made more obvious, but overall an excellent service and a good money saver.

    Have used Red Spotted Hanky on several occasions using our senior railcards and found good value fares. Vouchers appear online quickly after application and full credit held for any unused amounts. Tickets are easy to collected from machines at departing station, or where physical delivery has been requested they come in the next post. Excellent value use of vouchers.

    Picked up from Martin Lewis's email that redspottedhanky were doing a 2 for 1 promotion with Tesco on rail tickets. 4 of us were going to see Jersey Boys so set up a swap with Tesco, set up an account with redspottedhanky. Everything worked like clockwork, tickets arrived 3 days later, brilliant. Hardest part was trying to equate all of my Tesco vouchers so that they made up the correct swapping value, rest was easy.

  • Not as good as they used to be
    By 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 one

  • 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.

  • 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.

    By 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. Next year we may get the two-together Railcard as it seems to be half the cost of two senior cards.

    I always boost my clubcard points for redspottedhanky train tickets as I travel for events during the year and it essentially gives me free travel. What's not to love ? :) The code you receive from Tesco is easy to add to the redspottedhanky site and then it's easy to search for the best fares and book using the voucher money. 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. Just remember to allow about 72 hours before you need the points for them to be transferred over.

    I've been swapping all my Clubcard vouchers with redspottedhanky vouchers for the last couple of years. I can live with the new £1 booking fee based on the value I get from doubling up, however the fact they now require you to use the entire face value of the voucher or lose the remaining balance, is making me have second thoughts about trading my vouchers as most of my regular train trips come in under £10.

    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.

    By Threelittlekittens20 November 2014aged 45 to 54Female

    Before using your clubcard vouchers to buy Red Spotted Hanky vouchers, would suggest you look at other companies first. By the time the vouchers had been credited to my account the train prices had gone up and I would have been better off booking elsewhere. Ok if you are booking well in advance, otherwise use your clubcard points for something else.

    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. Firstly didn't realise they'd now imposed a booking fee and also I didn't realise any money left over from ticket price would now be lost! If this really is the case it should be made crystal clear. Up to now it's been a very economical way of travel!

    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.

So now its too expensive to use. If this had been made clear I would have bought a series of lower value vouchers. IF YOU ARE GOING TO IMPOSE CONDITIONS THEN PUT THEM ON THE WEBSITE BEFORE PURCHASE, otherwise it's unfair and a waste of my vouchers!
