How to travel to the UK on the cheap

While the United Kingdom offers plenty of things to see and do for tourists, it can get a bit expensive at times – transportation wise. But if there’s a will, there’s definitely a way! And we’ve found some of the best ways to get around the UK on a budget. So keep reading.

Remember the early bird theory

When looking to book or purchase tickets for bus, rail or air travel – it helps to plan and to book early. Booking early will save you a few extra pounds while booking at the last minute will leave you with not only a few but expensive options. Keep this tip foremost in mind as we elaborate on how to travel for less on the following modes of transport in the UK.

Budget train travel

There is something romantic and even nostalgic that overtakes tourists when travelling by train – watching the rolling hills and endless fields of green pass by. It goes without saying that it’s also the best way to see the UK. But being the fastest and least troublesome means of transportation does not make it the cheapest option though. For travellers to the UK, investing in a Britrail pass on the other hand, will help cut costs, especially if you plan to travel a lot. Cheap fares are available, but you have to catch them early and most often they are accessible online.

The Wheels of the Bus

Travelling by coach or bus may not be as romantic or as scenic as by train but it can be a whole lot cheaper. Again one needs to look at the positives and the negatives. The cons in this case are that travelling by bus would take you much longer to reach your destination. So it really depends on how long you are willing to remain belted in your seat, yes seat belts are part of UK law. There are plenty of options online to purchase cheap bus fares and if you’re lucky you might find journeys for cheap as even £1.
