This is an interesting read :

One main point to note below :

The cheapest way to book tickets

Booking direct at a station or via the rail company’s own website is usually cheapest as there’s no booking fee; plus you may also find some extra online discounts.

If you're using the booking sites, beware, you’ll pay more ... the Trainline charges a £1 booking fee, plus an extra £2.50 for credit card payments. Raileasy, on the other hand, charges a £1 booking fee on every purchase over £10 (£2 if it's under a tenner), plus a 50p debit card fee and 2.5% for credit cards.

Thanks, I will have a look at them now :thumbsup:

Chiltern line normally have very good fares - supersaver etc - I've always got better deals at my local station than on line providing you don't turn up to ask in the middle of rush hour!!!

try trainline to find who the carrier is, buy it from carriers website directly ... for me it works out to be the cheapest option normally.

have you checked megabus.com.
they have trains and buses to london victoria, and euston
