this needs massive improvement. As a student that is back and forth from university in london, I cannot stand the price of tickets. If you book a week or more in advance, you’re going to be paying around £50 for a direct return, which is an absolute joke when you need to make regular trips. I go to uni with girls that live in Birmingham and their train is like £10 direct. There also are nowhere near enough direct trains to London. So even if you want to leave it until the week before to book your ticket on Trainline, you’re basically just hoping that the tickets will go down in price (which usually they don’t) and that there’ll be some direct ones left (which there usually isn’t).
