I love travelling by train. There’s lots of reasons why it’s awesome! Personally I feel there’s nothing better than smoothly traveling around, viewing all the different landscapes and scenery of a new place, while still having the luxury of going to the bathroom whenever you need and extra leg room.

You might be surprised to learn how much you can save on train travel by booking in advance. Choosing to purchase advance train fares gives you a lot of advantages, here are my top 4 reasons to book your train fare in advance.

1) You’ll Save Money!
Advance purchase tickets can be as low as 25% of the final price when you purchase on the day. This is a huge difference, and especially so if you have more than one person traveling. Yes, it does mean you have to lock in your day and time in advance, but if you’re going on a trip somewhere where you’ll need to book accommodation, you’ll need to plan a little anyway. You can save some serious money by booking 2-3 months in advance, which really adds up if you’re a couple or a family.

2) You’ll Get Better Seats
There’s nothing worse than being stuck on a train right next to the children’s area when you’re not a parent. Trust me, I’ve done it before! If you book in advance more seats will be open so you can choose exactly where you can to be.

3) You Wont Miss Out
Have you ever turned up to the station to book your train, only to realise there’s no seats? With an advance booking you’ll never have to worry about this!

4) Choose Better Connections
Sometimes you can also save a lot of time on certain connections as they have less wait time in stations. Booking earlier will mean you have the most options available to you. Ensuring you can have the best trip possible!
