How to get a Stansted Express First Class train upgrade for just £5!

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Stansted Express is currently running a promotion whereby you can upgrade to First Class for just £5.

On the face of it, this is a decent deal, because your £5 also gets you:

access to the First Class lounge on Platform 10 at Liverpool Street, where you can grab a free coffee and newspaper

Fast Track security access at Stansted Airport

Stansted Express First Class discount

You need to book online and use the promo code FIRST to get this deal.  You can find full details of how it works on this page of the Stansted Express website.
