(PRWEB UK) 24 July 2012
Through their comparison site, the specialists at Cheap Trains allow their users to find the cheapest deals. In order to take full advantage of their service, the team have released advice on how to minimise their spending. The managing director explains his thoughts on the matter.
“We’re always keen to remind our users about the financial benefits of pre-booking train tickets, but there are plenty of other ways to save money that many people simply aren’t aware of. Here are some easy ways to do this.”
- Be flexible with your travel. When searching for the most affordable arrangements, it pays to try checking different dates and times to see the effect this holds on the overall price. This method is most suitable for day trippers or those whose journeys are mainly leisure rather than business based.
- Consider when you travel. The time of day in which you travel can have a really significant impact on the cost of your rail fare. When choosing travel times, many people fail to account for the cost of overnight accommodation in their budget. If not too inconvenient, travelling through the night is not only cheaper but makes for huge savings on accommodation fees.
- Compare the prices of different routes. Particularly for routes where there is more competition between operators, it makes sense to see if less direct routes, or those with changes included, would have a significant impact on the price. For those who don’t mind spending a little longer to get to their destination in order to make savings, this is definitely advisable.
