Advanced Booking on Trains

Hi

Need to book a train ticket from Paddington to Truro in early March 2013. Tickets are available in March but there is no discounted seats. So far all the single tickets are £58, which isn't the end of the world if I had to pay it. But what i would like to know is, do they release the cheaper tickets in due course?

Cheers in advance

Do First Great Western have special offers? I live at the other end of the country (Scotland) but have signed up to the East Coast Trains special deals notifications, which generally drop into my Inbox at the beginning of the month, with offers for 3 months in advance. Invariably it is cheaper to book two single tickets - can't quite see the logic myself! I went to Leeds and back in September for £40 - first class! I've went to London in May for £70 return, first class.

on trainline.com they have a "search for lowest fares" button ? they tend to get more expensive the later you leave it so my thoughts would be the discounts are for really advanced bookings.

If they dont offer discounts for advanced booking, then some of them give discounts for last minute bookings. But that's not something you want to rely on for vacations.

Hi

To answer my question. The cheaper tickets are now available and down to £39. A bit more like it!

There very very little difference between Trainline and Great Western.
