When is the best time to book trains? is there a set amount of time i.e. 6 weeks before travel that allows advance fares?

Also, are all websites roughly the same?

Thanks all, i will rep

Hi I just booked tickets last week to London for travel 4 April at the cheapest advance fares. This was with National Express. Dont know if all websites are the same but 6 weeks might be too late for the cheapest fares. When are you looking to travel?

I think its best to do it 12 weeks in advance because thats when the timetables are set and therefore tickets are released.
This should be helpful

Megatrain is a Stagecoach brand but does not run its own trains. Instead it uses space on existing Virgin Trains, East Midlands Trains and Southwest Trains services and on selected routes only.
Routes available are:
Glasgow and Edinburgh to Birmingham.
Birmingham to London.
Sheffield to London via either Derby or Nottingham.
Sheffield to Norwich.
London to Bristol, Exeter, Weymouth and Portsmouth.
All include availability of shorter journeys to selected intermediate stops (eg Glasgow to Warrington, Chesterfield to Norwich and Southampton to London).
When booking you should remember that you are not allowed to get on or off the train anywhere except the stations for which your journey is booked or else they will hang, draw and quarter you, or, if charitable, will take the contents of your wallet - or something like that.
