How do you get cheap train tickets?
Hey everyone, I'm wondering whether you know any novel tricks to get cheap train tickets?
Apart from the usual:
- Split Ticketing
- Booking Early
- Rail cards (does an NUS card let you get a 16-25 railcard? I know they’re available for all ages of student but don’t know if just an NUS card would work)
- Check for special offers from the operator directly (e.g. try booking on virgintrains.co.uk rather than nationalrail.co.uk/thetrainline.com)
- Generally avoid third party operators like thetrainline as they usually have a surcharge compared to going direct. Unless they have a special offer on
- Don’t pay for your ticket and hide in the toilet...
