 How can you get cheap rail tickets in the UK? This is a question that I get asked a lot by readers who are visiting UK for the first time. First of all, nothing beats discovering UK than by train. Secondly, it is no secret that train travel in UK is not cheap and I’ve already covered in the blog before about how expensive UK train tickets can be compared to the rest of Europe. Even though I currently live in Germany , I still visit UK a few times a year and whenever possible, love taking the train. I’m always on the hunt for cheap train tickets, especially from London to Edinburgh, my old hunting ground and in the process I’ve picked up some cool money saving train hacks that I’d like to share with you today plus an exclusive money off discount code for your next train travel trip!
