Figuring Out the Best Way to Get There

Now that I know that I will definitly travel by train. It was time to do a search for the best deals on trains in the UK.

So to get to Minffordd from London, one needs to transfer in Birmingham.

Although I went for Train-Split, it's still cheaper if you do it yourself. Finally my DIY-side can come out :)
With help: £31.00
Without help: £26.50

Now only waiting for the Advance Fares to get available...
London Euston - Birmingham New Street (Virgin Trains), 7th of May
Birmingham New Street - Minffordd (Arriva Trains Wales), 4th of May (that's tomorrow!)

The bus into London will be Eurolines as Megabus books the tickets as singles. And even than it's still more expensive (£15 vs €13)
If I book a return I must be able to grab a €21 ticket. But to make it complete, let's hunt down that €9 ticket/single!
But that's for next month...

See you later,

Brecht
