Catharine Sadler of Little Birch, Hereford, says another route, a different fare still
8:00am Thursday 31st May 2012 in Letters
WELL done John Lippiatt (Cutting the cost of your train ticket, Readers Times, May 17) for reducing his Hereford to London return rail fare from an expensive £93.05 to £55.90, by splitting his ticket purchases and using a Senior Rail Card.
However, he can save even more money and avoid the annoying upheaval of changing trains at Newport, by catching a straight-through train via Worcester.
Using his Senior Rail Card, the cost of an off-peak return from Hereford to London on this route is just £33.35. They won’t tell you about this at the booking office either, and it will save him a further £22.55.
