Fancy letting the train take the strain? Family trips by train needn’t cost as much as you think – there are big savings to be had off advance purchase rail tickets.
However, thanks to privatisation and complex pricing policies when travelling with more than one train company it can be incredibly hard to find the best train fares. We have teamed up with The TrainLine, the UK’s leading train ticket vendor to offer a speedy way to book rail tickets and access some of the best train fares available.
When looking for fares, we recommend three actions:
- book as far in advance as you can
- look for the single fares in each direction
- look for single fares from starting station to the interchange station where a change of train company is involved (the timetables will help you to see where this happens)
