Turn Rail travel into a direct route to savings

Rail is one of the oldest and most established forms of travel in all of Europe, and the UK is no exception. Iron tracks connected and solidified empires into nations over hundreds of years, facilitating trade, travel, and commerce.

Today itís still a common form of transportation, and like all forms of travel, you can save money on it if you know how.

Many of us take the train to and from the cities we work in, but not all of them purchase monthly tickets. In many cases a monthly train ticket can be a significant savings over paying daily. For those taking longer rail trips, the same rule applies.

Likewise, international is much like international air or water transit. Planning ahead, and bringing some beverages or food along can mean the difference between truly enjoying the trip you planned on taking, or spending considerably more than you had budgeted for.

Another consideration when looking into rail travel versus other forms is the cost of an overnight rail travel versus the cost of a hotel room between destinations. Interrailing in Europe is one popular way of travelling, giving pass holders the ability to traverse the whole of Europe over extended time periods.

Quite often rail travel can be a much less expensive alternative to road or air. Itís also more comfortable than a coach or plane.


Do you travel by rail? If so, what are your tips for saving money on rail travel expenses?
