Ten Top Tips

The Business Travel Magazine - - The Review -

1. For in­ter­nal meet­ings, book the rail ticket first be­fore de­cid­ing on the time of the meet­ing. 2. Take ad­van­tage of off-peak fares. 3. Chang­ing an Ad­vance ticket can be as lit­tle as £10 so it's worth com­mit­ting to early. 4. Put in prompts on a book­ing tool's log-in screen to help in­flu­ence be­hav­iour. 5. Ne­go­ti­ate soft ben­e­fits with the op­er­a­tors, such as park­ing, lounge and cof­fee vouch­ers, if your spend is over £100,000. 6. Look at Ad­vance first class fares as they can be the cheaper op­tion on a to­tal trip cost ba­sis. 7. Book as far in ad­vance as pos­si­ble. 8. Try and avoid Any­time (open) rail fares. 9. Make use of sea­son tick­ets for trav­ellers on long-term projects. 10. Fix the out­bound ticket to save money rather than an open re­turn for the trip. If you don’t know what time you’re re­turn­ing, book a sin­gle Ad­vance ticket for the out­bound leg and a sep­a­rate, flex­i­ble ticket for the re­turn leg. That could save up to 40% on the to­tal jour­ney price.
