Could this new train ticket site save rail travellers 40 million a year?

Money saving advice for train travel
By Editorial on Mar 23rd, 2017   @freelotteriesuk

A new UK rail travel booking site has launched that claims to offer train passengers the potential to save at least £40 million annually on 95 million rail journeys over an hour in length. 

ticketclever's algorithm crunches hundreds of millions of fare and route combinations to unlock savings of up to 60 per cent, the site says.

Top savings are found on the day-of-travel for journeys of an hour or longer. Showing more cheap fares than other rail ticketing websites, customers can make comparisons and choose the best fare for their needs.

For those who can plan ahead ticketclever also sells discounted Advance Purchase fares. Where possible ticketclever offers multi-ticket deals at a lower cost than-on-the-day fares, when Advance Purchase fares are sold-out or unavailable. ticketclever is an independent train booking site and doesn’t charge any booking or payment card fees. 

The routes you can save money on

The biggest savings are for journeys over an hour. Typical savings include:

Manchester to London Euston - £73.80, saving £95.20 (56 per cent) on the peak £169 adult single
Leeds to London Kings Cross– £54.30, saving £50.90 (50 per cent) on the off-peak £105.20 adult single
Liverpool to London Euston - £52.70, saving £30.20 (36 per cent) on the off-peak £82.90 adult single
Glasgow to Leicester - £86.20, saving £34.80 (29 per cent) on the off-peak £121.00 adult single
Birmingham to Norwich – £67.40, saving £76.90 (34 per cent) on the off-peak £101.50 adult single
Newcastle to Leeds - £42.00, saving £16.40 (28 per cent) on the off-peak £58.40 adult return
Oxford to Manchester – £135.40, saving £37.60 (22 per cent) on peak £173.00 adult return

'It is our mission to put rail travellers first, by making it easy to find and book cheap train fares using our clever algorithm,' says Jeremy Acklam, CEO of ticketclever.

'In an era where the price of train travel is under scrutiny, it’s frustrating that getting the best deal on UK train journeys isn’t straightforward.

'With so many fare combinations for each journey, it’s very difficult for passengers to be certain they have a good deal. At ticketclever we want to make rail travel simpler by transforming the process of finding and buying tickets, so it is more transparent.'
