The price of your fares have risen in 2013. Train fares have been hiked to new records which most commuters deem to be unfair. Travellers feel they do not get good value for money. With fares costing more in the UK than anywhere else in Europe, there's much frustration, due in part to over-crowded trains, poor service and a sense of being ripped off. We interviewed 100 middle-income earners and found that 66% feared that if train fares were to rise more, they would be priced out the market and would be unable to travel to their current jobs.
The government has promised to clamp down on opportunistic train companies who hike their prices, and are expected to impose a limit on how much train ticket prices can increase by. Nevertheless, ticket prices will continue to rise, so we encourage you to use our cheap train fare finder above, and get discount train fares now.

Once again, commuters are indignant at the decision of train bosses who have announced a hike in train ticket prices, coming in 2014. Every year it seems the train companies extort more money from desperate users of their service, and next year will be no different. As of January next year, prices will increase by an average of 4.1%, and applies to all fares including season tickets. At 1% above inflation, commuters are feeling the squeeze yet again. It's as important as ever for those who are struggling to pay for their train fares, to take advantage of cheaper train tickets and buy their train fares online.

4 out of 5 - Ordered my train tickets online for the first time with a little scepticism and ended up pleasantly surprised - enough to compel me to write this review.
5 out of 5 - Saved money, will be using again.
5 out of 5 - Very pleased to have saved money on my train tickets to Scotland. I think the long journey meant I saved more than if you buy tickets for shorter journeys. I've bookmarked this site.
5 out of 5 - Don't give any more money than you need, to those thieves that run the rail networks. Fed up with rail ticket increases, I started buying my tickets online about a year ago and overall i've saved over £300 this year.
4 out of 5 - Didn't save as much as I'd hoped to but cheaper overall on my journey to Portsmouth so can't complain.
4 out of 5 - We booked our family train tickets last minute and it worked out cheaper than usual so worth a shot.
5 out of 5 - I had a spare 10 minutes while waiting for my missus in a changing room (felt like an hour) and booked our train tickets home from Scotland to London on my phone. I'm a complete tool for paying full price up till now.
5 out of 5 - This website does what it claims... It found me the cheapest train tickets and made it easy. Keep it up. Vinny.
5 out of 5 - We had an exchange student staying with us on a limited budget, so I helped him book his train tickets online and was recommended this website by a friend. I can also report that Anselme saved quite a bit throughout his stay.
4 out of 5 - The website does what it claims, however through my own mismanagement of time, I missed my train which ended up cancelling my trip. Long story, but i'll be using Fare.co.uk again.
4 out of 5 - Pleased to find that it paid off to buy tickets online but my train journey was ruined by 2 slobs who were loud and vulgar in their language. They also left a terrible mess of McDonalds litter. Nevertheless, tickets were indeed booked last minute, and were cheap as promised.
5 out of 5 - No point paying more at the station when you can just book online. It's worth noting that this site isn't who you actually book with. Rather, their search engine is linked to The Train Line. Good service though and i've bookmarked.
5 out of 5 - Very good service and I will use it again.
3 out of 5 - This website makes out as though you'll make ridiculous savings on your train tickets. My train ticket to Portsmouth from Southampton was indeed cheaper than station prices, but I wasn't blown away by any huge savings. I'd describe the savings as modest. For the effort of pre-planning in advance, I don't think I would bother in future. I rated this website 3 out of 5 stars because it was simple to use, and did make my journey a little cheaper, just not as much as I'd have liked. Apparently long distance train journeys are where you save most. I thought Southampton to Portsmouth was a reasonably long distance.
5 out of 5 - I'd like to confirm that like just like most commenting here, i've also found cheaper train ticket prices online at this website. Bingo.
5 out of 5 - London to Scotland train tickets, 3/4 the price! Get in!
5 out of 5 - Impressed with the excellent service I received from the train line, both with the booking system and train service!
5 out of 5 - Bottom line... yes
5 out of 5 - I must say I very much enjoyed my journey from Hull to London. As a retired pensioner, I need to save every penny I can (grandchildren can be very expensive). Me and my friend, Joy, rode the train with the tickets we ordered from here and had a wonderful time. I must congratulate you on the cleanliness of the trains and the comfortable seats with tables. Take care. Margret.
