The prices seem very high right now, from what I've paid for rail in Britain before, and suggested by MiS61. Dates are less than 12 weeks away. Is this the new covid normal or am I missing something? Trying to go London to Edinburgh Dec 30 and Edinburgh to Bath Jan 3 or 4. Is it because of the holidays? Just trying to figure out if I should just buy the ticket already or some reason to wait. Even the new Lumo train is much more than expected. I was able to book advance price tickets for Bath to London (somehow) to travel in Jan a few weeks ago. I am confused about that too, was way ahead of 12 weeks but price was about as low as I've ever booked. Anyways, anyone with train ticket knowledge, any insight would be appreciated.
