What is the cheapest way to travel from Gillingham in Dorset to London?

I need to travel to London on a Friday and return on Saturday, however the train is looking like it will cost around £80! No coaches leave directly from Gillingham, does anyone have any bright ideas?! Thanks!

    I don’t know where you get a figure of £80 from unless you’re intending to travel during the weekday morning rush hour without booking in advance.. After 09-30am fares will be lower; booking your ticket in advance will be lower still; go to the station today and book it. A national railcard will give you a discount of 34% whether you book in advance or not. Not knowing what time you wish to travel on the days you mentioned, I found a return for £43. With a railcard discount that would be about £28.30

    You could alwasy try the National Express or Megabus.

    The National Express is usually quite cheap if you book it far enough in advance, and they have these things called ‘funfares’ which are good.

    Then there is the megabus. It does not go to as many places but is a lot cheaper, with lots of journeys only being £1.00 single.

    Hope this helps!

    Another website which deserves a mention here is http://www.blablacar.com, which provides long distance carpooling services in the UK and Europe.

    Carpooling need not be restircted to short distance and daily commuting only. They can be considered for long distances and regular long distance travellers, e.g who drive from the city they work in to the city they have their family in(link myself) on week-ends.

    This site is really well built and works like a social networking ite connecting peole who want to carpool. I not only save the cost of my trip, but also have a very social experience while making the trip.
