Facts & statistics

  • How we compare to Europe

    • According to independent blogger ‘the Man in Seat61’, “the next time someone says (or you read) ‘Britain has the highest rail fares in Europe’, you'll know this is only 15% of the story.  The other 85% is that we have similar or even cheaper fares, too.  The big picture is that Britain has the most commercially aggressive fares in Europe, with the highest fares designed to get maximum revenue from business travel, and some of the lowest fares designed to get more revenue by filling more seats.  This is exactly what airlines have known, and been doing, for decades.”
