    Advance train ticket availability

    How far in advance do they become available?
    I'm looking to go from Weston-Super-Mare to Rugby on Friday the 5th and there are no advance tickets available on the sites.

    the 5th June?

    If so they would definately be available by now

    They're definitely available now, you can buy 3 months in advance if you want, so it's all good.

    Just make sure you buy at least a week in advance, as the price increases after that.

    + rep for both of you

    There aren't any advance singles available:/ i swear there used to be!
    at the moment its costing me £32 return (with a rail card)... anyone know how do get it any cheaper?

    prices have gone up a lot recently,it also depends on the time of travel..off peak is a lot lot cheaper

    Book during offpeak hours and [url]www.nationalexpress.com[/url] is currently offering a 10% discount and checkout the times, as you can get it a lot less by going a little earlier or later than planned. :thumbsup:

    EDIT: They also show off all the times, rather than 5 different train times at a time, which does take long to scroll through the pages, so it's a lot more convenient to checkout.

    try ]thetrainline.com. they are usually cheaper

    Have just done the journey you want, at 12:00 with a 16-25 railcard (not sure what one you have) and got £29.05

    Damn, yea, just spotted that! i guess it will have to be £33 then!

    If only i dint have to go through Birmingham i could have tried to blag it. Recently went Weston-Pompey and back again for £5 ad the only time i saw a ticket bloke was at Bath Spa on the way back!
