Just a quick question: I'm pricing train fares from London to Macclesfield and London from Lake District... those routes.
Looks like raileasy.co.uk is much cheaper than Virgin Trains' own website.
And... single-way tickets are pricing cheaper than round-trip/return tickets.
That seems unusual to me as that's generally not the case with travel providers in the U.S.
Can any British rail travelers confirm this is "normal"? Am I missing something, do you think? Perhaps I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth. Any thoughts?
Also, am looking at advance fare, restricted/non-changeable trains.
Virgin calls their cheaper fares: Standard Advance
Raileasy calls it Virgin Trains Advance Single
Many thanks in advance for any confirmation.
