Train tickets in this country are expensive. It’s nothing new. And yet, every time you’re presented with a three-figure fare for a seemingly unremarkable journey, it’s a shock. We want your help finding Britain’s most expensive train fare.
Despite the pressures of the cost of living crisis, rail fares increased by 5.9% in March. The debate over privatisation and nationalisation continues. Meanwhile, ticket office closures threaten to leave disabled people stranded, and ongoing strikes by rail workers highlight a system where nobody’s happy.
It reminds us all too well that, over on the continent, there are offers like France’s €1 tickets.
If you’ve come across a mind-boggling single fare, let us know. We’re looking for proper wallet-busters; train tickets that should come with the number for a mortgage adviser printed on the back.
It’ll help us paint a clear picture of the rail rip-off, and highlight how freakish fares are battering Brits.
