Trains from Glasgow to Reading?

We are thinking of having the in-laws down for Christmas and I was looking at train fares from Glasgow to London coming down on 23 Dec going back on 30 Dec but it is coming up with over £200 for the two of them!! I have seen somewhere about splitting the journey to get a cheaper deal, does anyone know anything about this? They are in their 70s and I think they would rather come cross country than via London and it is probably better to avoid too many changes!
Any thoughts and ideas appreciated.

there was a thread yesterday about trainline.com and how the prices quoted now are the most expensive, and that they release cheep tickets closer to the date of travel

You can break it up Glasgow-London and London-Reading which should save you a bit. But, advance fares are only available for 23 December, not 30 December. This link shows current available advance fares dates (because you have to reserve a seat to get cheapest fares).

Might be worth waiting to see when 30 December is released although as it's Xmas/New Year, they may not release any tickets at all. It could be cheaper to fly. :whistling:

Thanks for the tips, I hadn't seen that post about cheap fares being available later so I may hang on a bit, I have looked at flights and at the moment they are also around the £200 mark... HAPPY CHRISTMAS one and all :santa:
