Why pay a booking fee? And if you dare use a credit card- they will charge you 4.50 for the priviledge. £8 in booking fees??

I live in Manchester and have been looking to go to London in August. I'm using thetrainline.com, I've managed to get my tickets for £24- although like Renacata said, these are tickets for specific trains so if I miss them Im screwed! If you want to book flexible tickets though (say, any off peak train on that day) then it will cost you a lot. One of those would cost me about £80!

You can try splitting your tickets - so you get more than one ticket for the journey e.g. say the journey starts at X and goes to Z and along the route is Y. It might be cheaper to get two tickets for the same journey - one from X to Y and another from Y to Z.
You can search for your journey on National Rail and then if you click the 'details' button like this (I've just done one from London to Birmingham as an example):
Then click 'show calling points' like this:
And then it gives you a list of stations:
Then you can split the tickets at, for example, Northampton, to see if it's cheaper to get one ticket from London to Northampton and then another from Northampton to Birmingham.
