Plane beats Train stories.

In Europe trains often cost a bloody fortune unless you book well in advance. It can be cheaper to fly ( it is normally cheaper to take a bus too)

This thread is devoted to enterprising stories of low cost flights that are cheaper than taking the train.

"It turned out that flying out from East Midlands Airport to Berlin, spending seven hours exploring the city and then flying to Stansted and getting the bus home was cheaper than a single train journey in England."

Mr. Cox also found he could buy a return train ticket to Berlin city centre, enjoy a free tour of a government building and lunch while he was out there and still save money.
Ok it took 7 hours longer and he travelled 1500km, he then had to buy a sausage in Berlin, but he saved 15% of the train price.

London - Sheffield by train is a tad over 200km.

EG Newquay to Manchester going in 3 months. £184 by train ( over €200) Standard.

BUT if you will Fly from Newquay ...VIA ALICANTE in Spain....you will save some money.
