Hi folks, Just wondering if there's any finesse possible with the following itinerary. To be fair, it's not too expensive, but the need to get an Anytime for the outward is making it less interesting than I'd like. Just me travelling, a 41 year old without a railcard. I'm flying out of Birmingham International on Friday 7th April, leaving at 12:15, and returning on the Monday, 10th April at 12:15. In an ideal world, I'd take a leisurely journey home and use opportunities for food and beer. Plan is to get the 06:28 from Grimsby Town, changing at Donny and New Street to arrive at 09:55. It's a 12:15 flight to Romania, so I'm guessing that leaving over 2 hours will be enough. There are earlier options if I need them, though. Currently, I can get anytime return for £76.10, which is not too scary, but if I can save a few quid, that'd be better. In the absence of an Airport Advance, I'm wary to pick an advance to get home unless I get a long wait between landing and departure - I've done it before at Stansted, and it was fine. I'm happy getting an advance outward and being restricted to a named train, though. I'm quite keen for flexibility from Sheffield on the return, or a longish teatime connection there instead, so perhaps a split at Sheffield might work? What do we reckon? Are there any clever tricks?
