Well, I think everyone has made their plans for the Christmas and New Year, and I am still thinking for the destination where I can visit. It is more than five years when I visited London, and overwhelmed with its many facets and transportation services. Several high trains to London are running everyday and providing comfortable transport from one to another destination.

Once again, I want to visit London, but now I will cut the cost of train ticket and save more bucks. Want to know how! Just be with me.

Buy in Advance – Advance ticket booking saves a load of money. As you decide to visit London, book your ticket soon to save money. Train companies charge you a lot of money on last-minute bookings and changes. You can buy tickets from the station as well as online, but the advance and online booking is the best option to avoid the hassle.
You will get all the amenities in the train journeys such as bars, power outlets, table seats, and the ability to choose quiet cabins and seating preferences. On the other hand, most of the trains headed to Greater London are short on amenities.

Delay Repay – Most of the train companies provide ‘delay repay’, if the train is delayed for at least 30 minutes. In many cases, you are owed either money or a free ticket. Look over the search engine for the ‘delay repay’ choose one from several websites and fill in the form, then send it with copies of tickets. You will receive free travel ticket or money with a few weeks. Watch out carefully, they will provide you a specific value ticket and if your travel value is less than your new ticket, then you can lose the difference.

The idea of split ticketing is that you buy tickets for separate potions of your journey, which usually have a rough correlation with the main train operator of the area or distinguishing between local and inter-city passenger flows.

Train service providers offer some cheap travel tickets in order to attract customers. They provide low cost tickets in their area than those where the passengers has to change trains. It means you can get cheaper tickets by buying two or more split tickets.

Technology – There are many handy applications available over the internet. Some of them can be downloaded free and will help you with your journey. These will make your journey more comfortable and enjoy full.
