At redspottedhanky.com we search high and low to find the best fares for you. Our customers save an average of 51% compared to buying tickets at the station on the day of travel.
How we calculated the average saving figure
At redspottedhanky.com, to keep the ticket prices as cheap as possible, we won't charge you any fees. That means no credit card or debit card fees, no booking fees and no delivery fees (except next day delivery – sorry, we have to charge for these!).
This is how we have calculated the saving.
We analysed sales data taken from actual redspottedhanky.com transactions for journeys made on or after 31st October 2010.
The sales data was run from 8th September 2010 to midnight on the 4th of November 2010 to ascertain the saving that can be made by purchasing an advance fare versus the equivalent walk-up fare at the station. The sales data consists of 2580 transactions. This analysis shows that the average saving that can be made by purchasing an advance ticket is 51.27%.
This data consisted of Standard advance fares purchased via redspottedhanky.com and was compared against the equivalent walk-up fare available at that date and time at the station, assuming that the same trains would be travelled on.
For enquiries with two advance singles the price was compared with the cheapest walk up return fare on the services selected whether this is off-peak or anytime according to the restrictions in place.
For enquires with one advance single the price was compared with the cheapest walk up single fare on the services selected whether this be off-peak or anytime according to the restrictions in place.
Only Standard class tickets booked in advance have been included, no first class or railcard discounted tickets have been used.
