I'm travelling from Nottingham to Swindon at the end of May for a few days. I'm trying to find the cheapest way of getting there by train, as it's too far to drive (current petrol prices would just make it extortionate).
I'm being quoted prices over £200 for the trip and I was hoping someone may have some tips for me, as this is way more than I can afford.
I do have a friend who is a train driver and can get me an open return to London for £15 (which I will likely take him up on because all my options seem to have me changing trains at London anyway), but even the London-Swindon leg of the trip is being quoted at around £100 so I'm wondering if there's something I'm missing here.
Any help would be great. :)
