Tips on how to book cheaper train tickets
Don’t leave it too late
Buying your ticket on the day could set you back a three-figure fee, but if you know well ahead of time when you’ll be making the trip to Wales use our journey planner to nab an Advance ticket that could come in more than five times cheaper.
Railcards mean big savings
If you’re a regular traveller by train and haven’t looked into getting a Railcard, you’re not doing it right. Lots of people are eligible for one and for just £30 will benefit from 1/3 off most of train journeys for a year.
Not in a rush?
If you don’t need to restrict yourself to travelling at the busiest times of day, find an Off-Peak service that will offer quieter carriages and cheaper fares.
