Searching for a cheap hotel?

September 24, 2010

We are currently comparing all the major web sites to find the most consistently lowest prices and at the moment, HotelsCombined appear to offer the best rates.
We’re also comparing payment methods, for example, Booking.com allows payment at check-out rather than forcing payment in advance. This can be important for business bookings.

How to avoid rail booking fees / credit card charges made by thetrainline.com

August 24, 2010

Here we show you how to avoid those additional charges and credit card fees.

Online companies such as http://www.thetrainline.com claim to save you 43% but ALL rail fares from ALL websites should be identical as they all obtain their schedules, availability and pricing from the same database supplied by ATOC (Association of Train Operating Companies). The 43% claim is simply a comparison of booking online and in advance compared to buying your ticket at the station on the day.

…don’t waste time comparing prices. We’ve researched the following online rail sites::

Thetrainline.com
Raileasy.co.uk
Mytrainticket
VirginTrains
Railgo
Redspottedhanky.com

The only difference one from another is the “booking fee” or “transaction fee” applied (sometimes added to the fare).

Avoid paying any fees by visiting  http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/ . It’s provided by ATOC and displays unbiased schedules and fares. Like a comparison site, they redirect you to the actual train operator to complete your booking.
And there are no fees and no credit card charges, so you can use your favourite card without paying a surcharge.

Here is a comparison of the charges: Rail Train Ticket Comparison Pricing

UPDATE FEBRUARY 2011 …
Redspottedhankey.com no longer charge booking fees

And here is a very useful link to all the rail company maps http://www.atoc.org/train-companies/maps
