lancing - to london vic plus underground and back again

thetrainline.com

Although this is usually for advanced train booking. If not it's usually just a standard price if travelling on the day.

Don't forget the paltry Quidco amount on thetrainline.com

I would only buy from a ticket window as a last resort. They're quite often miserable büggers behind the glass and unwilling to help. They also sell on behalf of all the operators, so are making a commission (at least that's what a member of staff told me the other day).

In the case of London Midland, the £5 fares from Birmingham to London are not available at staffed ticket offices and only online. I would try the individual operator websites first before going to a ticket website.

I use firstscot rail: http://www.scotrail.co.uk/

They tend to show the majority of cheap tickets, they don't charge any stupid fees like thetrainline seem to; and they sometimes have special 50% off offers (for answering a 3 question quiz) :)

i think nationalexpresseastcoast.com is still discounting 10% off all tickets

i didnt say it was cheaper? just when you check out you dont get charged a fee for using your debit/credit card like others and first class postage is free (thetrainline add a few quid at the end of the transaction).

ive used firstscot as their customer services are friendly, easy to contact and local number. most rail ticket sites show the same fares and available tickets as they come from a central database; so the availibility are normally the same, but some specific to that network show up on just that website, i.e. special offers.

but as i said from my experience first scot rail have been quick, easy and cheap for me; plus they have the occasional excellent offers (50% off etc)
