Lowering cost of Commuting by Train?

Banned 2
Found 18th Oct 2007
Ello,

We're moving house next week and my fiance is going to be commuting to work 2-3 times a week via train, (Northern railways?).

Now, neither of us have a clue about trains, other than its going to be costing her £8.50 a day for a return ticket.

Can anybody give me any hints on how to reduce the cost of this? As I said, I don't know a thing about travelling by train!

I had a look on their site and there is nothing that benefits you for travelling just 2 or 3 days a wk,I guess she not a student on the other days cos there a student railcard saves you 1/3 off.Sometimes there are offers that members here post up for discounted rail travel by various operators and ticket vendors that can be bought online.I travel by train so always keep a look out so thats what you need to do to save once in a while.
Some of the ticket vendors you can buy from you can save if you buy in advance but you need to know when you be travelling when really.

that martin mse bloke suggests that if you split your tickets up.. so... e.g... london to scotland cost cost £150.. but if you go london to newcastle then newcastle to scotland you could save loads.. it might not work for shorter journeys but who knows!!
