Cheap Christmas Train Fares

Train tickets as a general rule are released 12 weeks ahead of time; which means that Christmas and New Year tickets have just been released.

Travelling around Christmas is a nightmare on Public Transportation, as they will use the opportunity to undertake crucial maintenance – but on the lead up to Christmas or a early 2016 getaway they’re cheap as chips – or at least a takeaway.

Train tickets, similar to Airline Fares, are calculated by availability. I.e. Batch A will be sold at the lowest rate, once they’ve been booked, Batch B will be released at a slightly higher face value. First Class and Economy tickets operate independently under different batches – which is why it is always worth your effort checking the First Class price too. Sometimes you will find a First Class train fare for a fraction of the price of the high-demand Economy Ticket; especially on last minute bookings!

Here a few that I found as examples, all from Liverpool Lime Street

  • Manchester – Same Day Return (£6.00 Economy) Direct
  • Leeds – Same Day Return (£16.40 Economy, £37.00 First Class) Direct
  • London – Weekend Return (£30.00 Economy, £80.00 First Class) Direct
  • Edinburgh – Weekend Return (£36.80 Economy, £65.60 First Class) Direct

There are plenty of journeys to choose from at cheap rates.
