    Hello all,

    Although I can't say this is a certain journey, I would like to travel up to Colwyn Bay before long, and certainly before Christmas so in the current NFM period. With a YP the basic SVR is £54. Using the various tricks I have learned and what have you, I know I can get it below £50, but I wondered if anyone else might be able to help? Realistically a day return is unlikely owing to the distance and likely difficulty in getting up there; it isn't exactly direct!

    Thanking you all in advance :smile:

    N.B.: Please do not give any answers involving AP tickets. I know that APs from Bristol can be as little as £11.20 to Colwyn Bay.

    Go by bus to Newport for £48.85! Not much better than that though (and the bus times to Newport are lousy)...

    Sounds like a decent enough idea, so thank you. Although, if I did, I would probably make my way to Newport by bus. No sense paying £11 for that unnecessarily if I can't afford to :(

    £49.80 is what I get, all on the rails. If you want to know about it, I'll PM you the details. (Not suitable for public disclosure unfortunately.)
