16-25 Railcard

Not only is this a brilliant way to save money travelling, this card also allows 2-for-1 offers in London. Although you will need to two valid National Rail tickets for each person, you can visit the London Dungeon, Madam Tussauds, ZSL London Zoo and many more all in conjunction with the 2-for-1 offer.

National Express

This is another great cheap way of travelling across the country. Tickets from Liverpool to London or Sheffield to London range from £5 or even Newcastle to Birmingham for £7.50 travelling by coach is a great deal. From personal experience, the coaches are really comfortable, clean and with fitted central heating. Why not give it a go?!

Generally cheap train tickets

Always be sure to have a quick look on thetrainline and mytrainticket - both sell for pretty much every train line including National Express and often have discounts above and  beyond the carriers themselves.
