  • You will often see that, the best time to travel is outside the peak travel times, which are between 06:30 to 9:30 and 15:30 to 18:30. In this way, try to avoid travelling during commuting hours and you will make savings on your train ticket Peterborough to London.
  • For some trains, it is cheaper to get two single tickets 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.
  • Another trick to save money is to split up your journey to London. Instead of buying only one ticket for your route you can split the journey into different stages, and purchase a ticket for each section.
