Great savings can be made on rail fares
by booking in advance, whether on line or by the old method.
e.g.The fare from London the Manchester 'Anytime' ticket can be as much as £160.00 (each way) The best advance deal on one day was a mere £12.50! Even the popular Trainline agency charges a fee, whereas Redspottedhanky and Travelsupermarket do not. If all the discounted tickets have gone it may be worth looking at whether there are any first class ones left. There are also various Railcards for £30. There are Student, Family and Senior Railcards. Travel by rail with a child under 16 ?.Friends and Family Rail ticket, £30 for the year. Typically you will save 1/3 on adult fares and 60% on children's fares (off peak).
For walk on fares you could look into http://splitticket.moneysavingexpert.com/ Splitting does not necessarily mean you have to get off the train..
http://www.cheaptraintickets.info/cheap-train-tickets-guide/ is an excellent guide to how to save money on train tickets.
I did a search for someone for off peak return Birmingham to Penzance. I used www.raileasy.co.uk and got the price down considerably. Providing the person has a senior railcard It can pay for itself in the one journey
If you regularly travel it is worth looking https://www.liftshare.com/uk/ Hundreds of lifts offered. Just type in your town. You may be able to OFFER a lift, too.

To fix or not to fix ? It is all a gamble and, either way, you may finish up kicking yourself.
This is such a complicated issue that it is best to seek the guidance of an AgeUK recommended comparison site . But bear in mind that many comparison sites make their living from the commission they get when you change. I went along with one suggestion that I would save cash. I didn't and the company was so disorganised I never got a bill and I couldn't find out on line.
