Business travel by train
What better way to travel between meetings, to conferences or from your office to headquarters than by train. No congestion charges, parking charges or traffic jams. No getting lost, getting held up or getting stuck driving colleagues around. Instead you meet at the station, travel together and with on-board facilities such as WiFi, power sockets and tables, you can actually use the journey time effectively and productively. Things you simply can’t do if you’re driving.
We cannot stress enough how important it is to book your train ticket in advance, if you know you have a business trip coming up, why not get the ticket now? Buying your tickets on the day is the most expensive way to buy them. By booking up to 12 weeks in advance, you could save your business as much as 80% off the price of a train ticket.
Advanced train tickets can be purchased up until the day before you travel so it is always worth going online the night before and seeing how much you could save. Simply choose the ‘collect your tickets from the station’ option and remember to take your collection reference and credit or debit card you paid with to the self-service machine.
With the savings made it is entirely possible to upgrade to first class and it still be cheaper than paying on the day. Well worth using our best fare finder widget to price up your options.
First class is ideal if you’re schmoozing a client, keen to do some work with colleagues and need a table to spread out on or if you simply want to relax ahead of an important meeting. With complimentary food and drinks you can also eliminate the worry of a tummy rumble mid-meeting!
Rail travel is unbeatable in terms of value for money and managing time, why waste a few hours in a car when you can actually get on with some work during the journey?
