How can you battle back against thes hikes?
Some of the best tips are to book 12 weeks early for cheapest tickets. Don’t always expect to get a better deal if you buy a return ticket, sometimes two singles are cheaper! Megatrain often do £1 fares. Click through cashback sites when booking online to get money back. Split your ticket – it’s often cheaper to book a ticket from X to Y and another from Y to Z, than X to Z. Railcards and season tickets can save you money if you are a frequent traveller.
Don’t sit back and delays. Be sure to claim if your train is delayed. Read more about that on the National Rail website here.
