    Train tickets

    My boyfriend travels from Peterborough to Manchester every weekend by train,does anybody know of any way to make it cheaper,with a discount card or something.

    I'm a bit clueless,i've had a Google and not come up with anything !

    Thanks for any advice :o)

    Even better,get him to move here:-D

    Is there barriers at each side? My train ticket should cost £350 a month but i buy it further up the stop which makes it £165 - get caught about once a week and have to pay an additional £8 but save myself so much money for being a bit naughty!!

    buy seperate tickets via birmingham with ]www.crosscountrytrains.co.uk



    I don't think that would make much difference though,as it is now,he has to get one train from Peterborough to Doncaster and then another from there to Manchester Piccadilly,in total that usually costs 62.80.

    i get a lift to Bromley with my boyfriend and buy it from there - you just get to a station further up the track be it by train and get off, drive ,fly, swim

    Ohhhh i see.

    You can buy a ticket from Peterborough to Leicester

    Get a Megatrain from Leicester to Sheffield

    Then buy a train Sheffield to Manchester

    ^ All cheaper when buying in advance :thumbsup:
