I normally get cheap tickets as low as £6 up to friends in Scotland even booking a day or two in advance, and £8 on the way back but next week I cant find a ticket lower than £15 no matter what time of day all week and even the week after it has abouit 2 tickets for like £9 each direction, doesnt sound bad but they are like 5am in morning or 11pm at night with like a 4 hour wait at Glasgow!
So I decided to check about my other friend in Warrington and the cheaoest ticket is £19.25 single, or £24 anytime or £30 for a return ticket.
Considering this is WITH a railcard it shows you how bad they are, and the week afters budget tickets are about £15 to warrington and £12 to my friends in Scotland.
However the week after theres more cheap tickets but still not as many as normal.
Is there some holiday I am missing?
