I went online last night to check out trains times and costs for getting from Doncaster to Kings Cross, a journey of 90 minutes. Last night the price for a Standard Class seat was 10.01 and the price for a First Class seat was just 39.
Today I went back on line to book the seats and the cheapest Standard Class seat was whopping 89 each way and First Class had increased overnight to 171 each way.
Same seats, same train and at the same time. And then they wonder why people don't use the trains.... I'm all for a free economy but an overnight increase like that is disgusting..

Moral of the story - He who hesitates is lost. Don't mess about, book it straight away, as soon as you see it!!

I know what you're saying, and had it been up to me then I would have done.
Problem was, was that it involved someone else that is at the other end of the country, that for some unknown reason, never answer's either their mobile or home phone when they ring.
Arhhhhhhhhh....! that un-answered phone cost me over 160 extra.. ](*,)
