Planning a train trip from London? Book in advance and save A LOT of money


I just came across this really eye-opening infographic on train fares from London to other popular cities across the UK. It really highlights how much you can save on train tickets if you plan advance . . . at least 10 weeks in advance to be exact. I’ll be honest, until I saw this I had NO IDEA train fares fluctuating like this. I do know that from now on I’ll be booking all my train journeys well ahead of time.

    I always book in advance, especially when travelling to London from Newcastle which is around 3 hours North by train. If I book 12 weeks in advance, I can get a reserved standard class seat for £15 single or a first class seat for £44.

    The only downside to booking in advance is that you can’t be sure that you can / would want to travel on the day you’ve selected. Then again, its better than paying £50+ single!

    I tried but all the prices are so high. Do you have any tip to find better prices?
