Train from London to Edinburgh - why no discounts?

Jump to last reply

I plan to go to Edinburgh from London on Jul 12 and have been on http://ojp.nationalrail.co.uk website to search for their advance purchase tickets. However, the cheapest ticket showing up (one way) from London to Edinbrugh on Jul 12 is upwards of 100 GBP! However, if I go back to Jul 8 (just 4 days earlier!), I see tickets going for as cheap as 50 GBP, even cheaper tickets (18 GBP) are showing up for late June. Is this because Jul 12 is a high season and no advance tickets are availble (or already sold out)? or is it just that the advance tickets are not yet shown?

The latest date I can purchase for as of today is July 13 according to the nationalrail website and there are no "advance purchase" tickets showing up either. Only the expensive +100 GBP one way. Am I already too late for the advance purchase tickets or have they just simply not yet "shown up" on the website?

Your help is appreciated!
