Hi

I wondered if anyone such as yorkie could help me. I need to get from Penzance back to Ipswich as cheaply as possible on 20th July (yes I've left it a bit late) or if not possible, the day before. Ideally not getting to ipswich ever so late.

Thanks in advance.

There is a First Minute Fare on the 1005 PNZ - PAD 1505 for £27.50 or FC for £36.50, then get a Z1 & 2 T/c then 1630 or 1600 to Ipswich for £10 on a "one" advance single, or FC for £15

PENZANCE to FELIXSTOWE



ONE FIRST ADVANCE SINGLE 1




Code:
PENZANCE                     10:05    Train    FIRST GREAT WESTERN   
LONDON PADDINGTON   15:05    15:05    Tube*        
LONDON LIVERP'L ST  16:00    16:00    Train    ONE RAILWAY   
IPSWICH             17:08    17:26    Train    ONE RAILWAY   
FELIXSTOWE          17:51

(Same price/timings to Ipswich)

OK that's £9 more but for First Class it's worth it.

A combination in Standard will cost significantly more and won't include the Tube.

(BTW this is an adult ticket)

Hint: FC is cheaper on One than FGW, and One own that flow. ;)

It used to be cheaper to book on GNER than FGW, and simply discard the GNER bit, but not now FGW finally joined the 21st century and introduced advance singles ;)
