British Rail Train Ticket Moneysaving Tips
Follow our simple suggestions below and you may be able to save up to 50%* on your British rail train ticket:
- Get organised - Advance British rail train tickets may be available up to 12 weeks ahead - book these cheap British rail train tickets early, as there's limited availability and you can't buy them on the day of travel
- Avoid peak times - travel off-peak for more comfort and cheaper British rail train tickets
- Decide exactly when you'd like to travel and book Advance tickets. They're cheaper and available till 6pm the day before you travel but they're not flexible so make sure of your travel date and time before you book
- Consider buying two Single British Rail tickets instead of one Return. Two single British rail train tickets may work out cheaper than a standard return ticket (Note: Railsaver will automatically determine if booking two single train tickets are cheaper than booking one return ticket - this is especially important if only part of your rail journey needs to be during peak time)
Split Your British Rail Train Tickets
