London Euston Holyhead Fares Too Expensive

by AT

Do you think London Euston to Holyhead train fares are too expensive?

A report by Passenger Focus, a travel watchdog, says British rail travellers pay lot more for using trains than rail users on mainland Europe.

Passenger Focus say that train fares are about 50% higher here in the UK than on the continent.

So if you travel to or from London from Holyhead, Bangor Chester or any of the stations in between, what is your experience on fares?

Do you think we should not have to pay for greater flexibility?

If you want to go from Holyhead to Euston and get a very good price you may need to book at least 2 weeks in advance and specify your train and time.

Should we have more trains available and what do you feel about weekend arrangements when you may need to use a coach for parts of the journey?

Over priced train fares
by: Anonymous

After flights from Dublin getting cancelled on the 23 rd dec I decided to get the ferry home to London so I could be with my family for Christmas . I couldn't book the ferry & train together so ended up paying ?38 for the ferry which I didn't mind but it cost me a whopping ?120 for the train to London euston . I thought this was crazy !

Train Or Taxi
by: Ryan

I hate using the trains on a sunday, when travelling up to chelsea to watch them play on a sunday. There is always work being carried out on the lines and always a delayed service. Its is so much easier to get a taxi insurance that you will get there and back in time.

need better Sunday service
by: Jill

I really dread going on the train on Sundays. Had to come back from Euston to Bangor on Sunday and it took ages, and we had to use a coach which had to go to each and every station in North Wales from Chester.

not only that but there was nothing to drink on the train either, so we were tired and thirsty when we got to Bangor!

I know they have repairs but sometimes you feel that you are doing them a favour by travelling on the train..

train fares to London
by: Julie

yes I think train fares to London are too high from Holyhead. It's crazy to think that it costs less to travel from Dublin to Euston than from Anglesey.

One good thing is they have made some of the trains a bit faster and you can get to Euston from Holyhead in around 4 hours on some trains.

And it takes over 5 hours to get to Cardiff!
