    I'm hoping to visit some relatives with a couple of friends in Ammanford/Llandybie, nr Swansea over a weekend in May or June. I've got the option of driving or taking the train.

    Can anyone suggest how to get cheapest tickets? The best Swansea - Leeds return I got was £116.

    If I get the train I can either go directly to Ammanford or I can get picked up in Swansea, so whatever's cheapest. I'd aim to be leaving on a Friday morning, to arrive late afternoon/tea time. Return time is less important but probably some time on the following Monday.

    Cheers

    Travel via Manchester, and split at either Huddersfield or Manchester.

    The fare is cheaper and off peak restrictions are much better this way.

    Try splitting at Manchester. Or Crewe. Or both. I'm not saying that's cheapest, but I normally make some good savings compared to through tickets.
