To UK: plane versus train costs

My upcoming journey to the west of England, hand baggage only:
  • Plane İzmir > Gatwick: 1,600 miles 38 = 2.4p per mile
  • Train using split ticketing: Gatwick > West country: 160 miles 49 = 31p per mile

Nothing new, just sayin'

Re: To UK: plane versus train costs

My grandson has to travel up to London to LSE most days in the week .( we are only 35 miles from Trafalgar square ) it costs ( cheapest ticket ) 24 ret a day. I honestly don't know how British Rail have the nerve to advertise it .That's local station to Charing x.

Re: To UK: plane versus train costs

We flew from Manchester to Singapore via Amsterdam and the Hong Kong back to Manchester via Amsterdam last year, it cost 0.95p per mile including lounges, fine wines and Champagne, excellent food and fully flat beds.
This year I will be on the bus.
