I started looking at train ticket from London to Edinburgh and Edinburgh to Inverness and Inverness to Edinburgh about three weeks ago. At that time I found quite reasonable prices in second class. Now all I'm seeing is first class at high rates.
Is this due to that the less $$$ fares have sold out?
I am needing tickets for September. The fares for that time are not released yet and the ones I was looking at were for April or May to give me an idea of what I would end up paying. At what point will those fares be released? Are the second class fares available to reserve now and you gamble on the price?
I would really rather not pay $200 for a train ticket to Edinburgh. I can fly from London to Dublin then Dublin to Edinburgh for half that. I would much prefer the train for several reasons, but at the rates I'm seeing at the moment I can't afford it.
Any advice on how to get a lower train fare?
