A Flight Maybe Cheaper Than a Train Ride

Jump to last reply

A boy wanted to take the train from Sheffield to Shenfield (Essex) which is about 180 miles away. The journey would have cost him 51.79 lbs. He, however, found a cheaper way to travel:

He flew.

But via Berlin, with seven hours of sightseeing in Berlin. And he still saved money, 15 per cent, to be exact. Admittedly, it was not environmentally friendly. Or was it? - The plane would have flewn without him.

Read the amazing story about optimization of travelling costs in Europe:
