I have been waiting patiently to buy rail tickets from Edinburgh to London for Wednesday, October 9th and today I'm finally able to do so. I go to the National Rail site and they want 146 Euros which is insane. The reason I say this is because Wednesday, October 2nd is 30 Euros. Even Tuesday, October 8th is 30 Euros. I figured the best time to buy would be as early as possible. Is this not the case? Is there something that I'm missing that is going to make taking a train from Edinburgh to London that much more expensive?
Thanks in advance.
