    Secondly, timing is extremely important, if you are planning to travel on days where there could be events or possibly be public holidays, tickets may become scarce and thus prices will increase so it's always a good idea to look at the prices a few days before or after the date you intended to travel, to see if the prices fluctuate.

    Thirdly, taking a longer route or a route that has more stops can sometimes be cheaper than trying to get there the fastest, when a train is slower or has to stop often the train companies will often reduce the price to compensate the commuters for the delays. Lastly one of your best friends when searching for the cheapest prices would be using Omio which organises all prices to find you the cheapest and most convenient option for you.
