Really easy and quick way to search for the cheapest seats around your date of travel. Fantastic if your just looking for the cheapest dates to travel one. Plenty of routes to travel and can gain even more of a discount with railcards etc.

From the website:

'Quick and easy to use, Best Fare Finder lets you view cheap tickets for your journey by week & month. Just select your destination, tell us when you're thinking of travelling and Best Fare Finder will show you where cheap tickets are available around these times. There are over 130 journey options to choose from with even more to be added soon.'

Some examples: Birmingham to Edinburgh for £40 return. Exeter to Bristol from £4.

These deals are already out there so to speak, but now its much faster and easier to find them! Hope this helps some of you!

Personally I'd use a site such as Southern Railways site as I've never had to pay them anything extra.
http://tickets.southernrailway.com/sn/en/JourneyPlanning/MixingDeck

They have a lowest fare finder grid (lower left of the results screen).
Over on the right is a 'Show help' button which includes helpful "bubble help" for the first time you use it too.

Remember to click "other routes" to check if even lower fares for restricting to one particular route, or one particular company - eg a c£45 single on whoever from Milton Keynes to Portsmouth becomes as little as c£5 via Kensington Olympia & Southern only.

There's a helpful guide over on MSE too at
