I need to get from either Nuneaton or Coventry to Southampton for a cruise, which is cheapest route?
There is an hourly direct service from Coventry to Southampton, operated by Cross Country Trains, it takes around 2hrs 15mins!
I suggest you look on their website, to check the trains for the day you are travelling... If you're travelling in a couple of weeks you might be able to get quite a cheap ticket, if you book in-advance and happy to travel on a specific train. (If you miss it, you have to pay for a new ticket!) You should allow yourself some breathing space if the trains are delayed, as these are long distance trains and delays happen quite frequently.http://www.crosscountrytrains.co.uk
I can't get cheaper than £76 return!
Ohhh well, thats just the way the cookie crumbles...
The train company that operates to Southampton is completely unrelated to this thread. If you want you can private message me your dates and times and I'll have a look, but I have no special access to fares that you would be unable to see.
Try National Express.

Does this include children as it would not let me choose children when choosing the tickets.

Also it asks for names of passengers when booking, so can it be transferred to others if plans change?

thanks.
Besford
Yep, looks like you can only make b'ham to London and back with an overnight (and wasted tickest as above) as earliest B'ham departure is 12:55 and latest London departure is 13:15 (or thereabouts).
Besford

Is this any good for visiting the NEC?

That would be a short rail journey back out of Brum on another line (from New Street) but not difficult at all. Would cost more than 50p though!
Bunglistik
xenept
@lookbook Presumably you can use the return (bham to lon) as the starting point of the journey and the other ticket (lon to bham) as the return?
You'll need to get an extra ticket to start your journey from Birmingham; ie the booking system will only let you choose/book a journey starting in London and that journey needs to be earlier than the return journey so for example London - Birmingham at 9.40am and Birmingham - London is at 3pm, obviously you can't book the Birmingham - London as the first journey, so book the earliest London - Birmingham possible (you won't use it anyway) , then select a Birmingham - London which is actually going to be your first journey, and buy a third ticket from London - Birmingham which will be your actual return journey...tickets are sold as 25p singles so you should be fine - however be flexible with the times if you intend to do this as a day trip as it seems the Birmingham - London trains arrive in the afternoon - might be more suitable for a trip longer than just a day :)

I doubt if anyone could help you based on such flimsy information. I suggest that you play around with the Chiltern Railways link and the Megabus and National Express sites to see what's the best price you can find for the dates you want to travel.

Megabus offers cheap train travel to / from Birmingham / London & other routes if you are organised enough to book a few weeks in advance.
Just checked for next month and it's £3 each way, plus 50p booking fee regardless of number of journeys booked in one session.

Have I got this right what you've posted? - London to Birmingham Return - Megabus £6.50, Chiltern Railway £5.00
If so, what is your point?

I incorrectly assumed it was reasonably obvious but I can expand:
OP deal is great, but a time-limited opportunity.
Megabus train travel is not always as cheap as OP deal, but available indefinitely.
There are some total £4 Birmingham/London return options currently available from Megabus trains at the end of July (total £4.50 return inc booking fee), or £1 +BF London/Birmingham one way
Hope that helps.
And as a clarification for others:
Megabus offer discounted train travel, not just exclusively bus travel.

It wasn't necessary to expand. What you posted made no sense. You posted dates and prices that made it more expensive to travel Megabus than Chiltern and in the context of the ticket being from London to Birmingham that made no sense.
However you went wrong by not considering a Birmingham to London return, which some required, which would be cheaper using the Megabus site.

Also, I think by now the majority of travellers already know about Megabus and would be checking their website for a cheap price.

On your latter post about wifi on Virgin Trains; I think you'll find that Virgin provide free wifi to First Class passengers only. Those who travel standard class, in which class Megabus passengers would be seated, can use wifi on board but it has to be paid for.
Flipd
baker556
Chiltern trains have free wifi! That alone is worth it over bus..
Megabus buses also have free wifi, although in the context of this thread we are comparing to Megabus trains, not Megabus buses.
On the London/Birmingham route, Megabus trains partner with Virgin trains and whilst Virgin trains offer some form of wifi service, I have no idea if it is offered free to Megabus train customers.

On the train back and the WiFi died shortly after leaving Marylebone, although pretty much solid on the way in this morning. It seems to be an 8 Mb/s line when you can get it. I have never seen so many iPads in one place. :(
The 20:10 train back to Kidderminster stops at quite a few stations. Was about 10 minutes late arriving this morning and maybe a little later getting back. All things considered, I still prefer driving.


Similar experience - Wi-Fi very patchy (on the outward journey and on the return journey), train 10 mins late (on the outward journey and on the return journey), comfortable seats, nice to have a power socket at every seat and decent sized windows - less claustrophobic.

Slower than Virgin but a better experience at both stations since they are less congested.

As a londoner, I can understand when people say london is crap. It usually depends though, some places are nicer than others, same goes for Birmingham I suppose.

Half the people who laugh at Birmingham have never been to it and only base their hatred for it on various comedians saying it's terrible.

I've spent about 23 years in London and at least 14 in and around Birmingham.
On the whole London is horrid and is getting worse by the day.
Birmingham, Manchester and other large cities are following London's decline but are still a few years away from the level of nastiness that London has reached thus far.
This whole country is on a downward spiral with London leading the way.
Morality; respect; kindness; tolerance; law & order - all on their way out :(

Yes you can book as little as 3 or 4 days away and you can book anytime up to 6 weeks in advance. They only release tickets upto 6 weeks ahead, so you can not book anything for March yet, but every day another day is released into the calendar. The earlier you book it usually gets the better prices.... prices are £1, £3, £5, so on and on. Not sure how many tickets they have available at each price but once the £1 ones have sold they then become £3 etc etc.

This price has been around for years now. The trains depart from London Marylebone which may be more accessible to some than Euston and also rather than arrive at Birmingham New street, they stop at Moor Street and Snow Hill. Also you go through a lot of countryside (up to Banbury) and the views are scenic.

Ah excellent thanks for your help :)

As long as you don't swipe in or swap these for tickets at the station then this is great!


If you get the SMS tickets, and you have a compatible phone that can display the graphic "barcode", you swipe in & out at Marylebone, but don't need to swipe in & out at the stations without automatic barriers.

In any case, you're ok.
This from the 'help' files accessed from the cheap seats offer pages
"Can I board the train at any station?
Tickets are valid only on the date and train service shown on the ticket. You may board and alight at any Chiltern Railways station, as long as it is between the points stated in on your ticket. For example, with a Birmingham to London E-Day ticket, you may join at Leamington Spa and alight at High Wycombe, as long as the train stops at these points."

So, basically, if you want to travel from Solihull to London, you buy a ticket for travel from Birmingham.
If you want to travel from High Wycombe to London, you buy a ticket for travel from Banbury or Bicester.
robrymonduk
Pops_is_here;2593735
Will probably get away with it if there are no automatic barriers, or ticket checking at Solihull.
I know you don't need to "swipe in" (the tickets are SMS text message tickets, sent to your mobile phone), as there are no scanners or automatic barriers at Banbury or Bicester, and these tickets are available from those stations.


Thanks, there are no checks at both Solihull and Widney Manor/Dorridge which are both alot closer for me, they are just basic stations on the Network West Midlands lines but Chiltern stop at them. As long as you don't swipe in or swap these for tickets at the station then this is great!
