If you want cheap train tickets Edinburgh to Richmond, we're here to help. Here we give you some tips for finding cheap train tickets.
How long in advance should I book my ticket?
The earlier you book the cheaper it will be. You may save up to 80% on your train ticket by booking 90 days before the date of departure. Why? Because train operators tend to release advance tickets up to 90 days before the date of departure and it is usually at this time that you will have the best fare.
When is the best time to travel?
In order to get cheap train tickets, you need to avoid the busy peak travel times between 06:30 to 09:30 and 15:30 to 18:30. Be flexible and your train ticket Edinburgh to Richmond will be cheaper.
Are two singles cheaper than a return?
For some routes, it is cheaper to book two singles rather than a return ticket. You will have less flexibility as you need to know in advance the time you wish to come back but cheaper tickets might be available.
What is split ticketing?
Splitting your ticket for your journey to Richmond is another way to reduce the cost. It is entirely legal to split your ticket into 2 or more tickets covering the different stages of your journey, the only rule is that the train you're using stops at the stations you bought tickets for.
