"Let the train take the strain"?
Were the words of an old railway TV ad. In Nov, for our hols, because of where we are going and the day, we need to fly from Manchester. We thought about driving up, and as my sister lives within 20 mins of Man airport, parking would be free and free lift to and fro.
However, I thought that maybe by booking early, we might get a really decent price by rail.
I was totally wrong. Bury st Edmunds/Manchester airport return an eye watering £255 return for 2. So it will certainly be "let the M6 take the strain". If booking early is supposed to attract the cheapest prices, I dread to know what it would cost by booking with short notice.
