The cost of traveling by train in the United Kingdom can be very expensive but it can be cut by around a 1/3 if you buy a railcard. Most cost around £30 (£20 for certain people) and can be bought in advance online: www.railcard.co.uk. Railcards are ideal for occasional and off-peak travelers and for groups of 2 or more.
OFFER: Chiltern Railways also offer a very good deal called "2 Pay, 4 Travel" that allows up to four adults to travel for the cost of two adults.
