Beat the train fare blues this winter

Press release January 23, 2012 Tourism

A UK train blogger has created an independent guide aimed at helping railway passengers beat the train fare blues this winter.

The guide was created after ATOC announced the 5.9% fare increase earlier this year which left thousands of regular train users shocked. Some users reported a 10% increase on regular fares leaving people feeling cheated and out of pocket.

The cheap train ticket guide has been produced to ease the sudden price increase and help families and regular train users on a budget save the pennies.

Some of the tips and tricks within the guide show people how to get discounts of up to 83% off on their normal train fare by making the most of split ticketing and taking advantage of budget innercity services such as megabus UK which often sells tickets for just £1.

The website also keeps track of the latest discounts and offer presented by leading UK train companies.
