Book in advance of travelling...

 

Did you know that booking train tickets in advance could save you anything up to 80% on the usual cost of tickets bought on the day of travel!

 

It is worth noting that cheap train tickets are often available until 6pm the night before travel, so even if you've left it untill to the last minute, cheap train tickets, which can sometimes offer savings of up to 30% on the cost of tickets bought on the day, could still be yours!

 

Travel Off-Peak...

 

Travelling off-peak (which often means travelling after 10am and outside 4-7pm on weekdays and incorporates travelling all weekend) is cheaper than travelling during peak times (i.e. when a lot of people are travelling to and from work).
