Cheap advance tickets on Avanti West Coast

2 replies 70 views
Since Avanti took over the west coast line, I have found it much harder to get cheap advance tickets than it was with Virgin. Does anyone know if they release fewer of these types of tickets than Virgin did, or if the number of cheap tickets has been affected by coronarvirus? I am moving to Lancaster and will need to use the line quite a lot, so it's a bit annoying if it's going to be massively more expensive than I anticipated.

    In case you were unaware the virus is having a huge effect on railway operations.  The number of tickets for each service is severely restricted, so comparisons with Virgin aren't valid.

    Is there a particular journey you have in mind?
