    can anyone help my girlfriend a ticket from Manchester to Edinburgh, for travel today with no railcards, for less than 56.50. sofar Ive managed to get 55 but this is
    mcv - hbd
    hbd - pre
    pre - edb
    and isn't worth a 1.50 saving.

    Leaving it to the day of travel means you won't get the Virgin or TPE advance rates. The fares you've found sound very good for "day of travel" rates!!

    she HAD an advance but has lost it along with her yp16-25 pass.
    assuming the off peaks are valid we now have 42.90 by splitting once at preston.
    --- old post above --- --- new post below ---
    bought the 42.90 option, and are travelling now.
    a mod can lock this thread :)

    It would be helpful if when using the three letter codes you also specified the full name of the station along side the code in the first instance, this way it is easier to read and people don't have to look up the codes.

    Threads don't tend to get locked here as others may still have ideas that may help people in the future.

    I agree that does seem like a good price - enjoy your trip. :)
