I do a weekly commute between Loughborough and Croydon East - Monday morning - back to Loughborough on Fridays. On other regular trips I've done I've been able to book well in advance and get some good savings - even making it worthwhile to go First class, but I can't seem to find a way to do this for the current trip. I am using the East Midlands trains to St Pancras then FCC to East Croydon. Appreciate any advice/tips - I had wondered about trying to get a cheaper ticket to another destination or "reversing" the trip (starting in Croydon) but nothing seems to be working out. If I can't do anything that's fair enough. I don't have any railcard or priv entitlements or anything. Any ideas?
