AndyB in conversation with the Man in Seat61 – Britain’s Rail Fares
The UK has some great value rail fares to explore the country but you need to be in the know to find them!
Mark Smith – the Man in Seat61 www.seat61.com used to work for the Department of Transport setting fares policy. He is perfectly placed to offer some insights into this complex area.
We chat about what rail fares are offered and when you should look to book fares. Ways of bringing the fare down by “splitting the ticket” is covered.
There are a number of railcards that give access to discounted fares which in some instances are worth buying even for a one off trip.
Finally we start to chat about rail rovers that give unlimited travel in set period of times. Starting with the InterRail and Eurail which non UK residents can travel around the UK. We move on to the All Line Rover and mention other options….. we ran out time to cover the full range of rovers. We have agreed to do another episode on the subject as they do offer great value!
