Need to get from A to B? Why not take the train? With very little effort on your part required, you just board at the station, sit back, read the paper or look out of the window and enjoy a nice cup of coffee or civilised glass of wine until you reach your destination. More gentle than the car or air travel, you can even find cheap last minute train tickets without too much hard work.

Much maligned in the past for delays, engineering work and overpriced tickets, things are definitely improving and bargain tickets can be snapped up especially for off peak travel times. Thetrainline.com should be your first port of call (ports? Trains? Should that be Station of Call?). You can find schedules, timetables, ticket prices and plot your route through this website. As the UK's leading train ticket retailer, trainline.com sells tickets for all routes and all train companies. They therefore manage to come up with the cheapest deals and tickets. Visit the website and find out how you can save even more – a further 43% - by booking your ticket in advance, or by snapping up the last available tickets at the very last minute.

National Rail Enquiries is another such company providing route planners, ticket sales and timetables. It is also linked to hotel.com allowing you to plan your whole trip rather than just the train travel side of things. Check out their website to find out more and see what they have in the way of cheap last minute train tickets for sale.

In a bid to improve the reputation of train travel, much has been done to publicise this mode of transport, not least the increased availability of cheap last minute train tickets.
