    I'm planning some nights out in different cities. Probably mostly in the north of England. I've been looking at transport, national express, megabus etc. and some of it is cheap and some is really expensive for shorter journeys. I don't know why, you would think it would be cheaper to travel shorter distances. So what I'm asking is, does anyone know the cheapest way to travel around the country?

    I would be travelling from Glasgow, and would like to spend under 30 quid to travel out one day and come back the next. Also any general tips would be appreciated. Please and thanks.

    General tip, have a look at Quidco for cashback on thetrainline and National Express.

    What sort of cashback do they give? I'm a poor student type.

    Around 3.5%, not instantly mind you. You pay the full amount and they pay the cashback around a month later.

    Advertise on craigslist for truckers to give you a lift. You may have to pay them with blow jobs though.

    National Express used to do 'fun fares' if you booked early enough. Regularly did Southampton to London return for 4 each way.

    As much as I'd happy fuck a man in the arse I still don't like getting a blowie. They're shit, from men and women alike ;p

    Anyway, youll often get better prices booking well in advance. Obviously avoid peak times. If you're a student, don't you get a discount railcard?

    I could, but I would need to pay for it and I don't go to uni enough to make it worth it.

    Just looking at train prices - short-notice, admittedly. 65 return to Devon from Oxford.

    Fuck right off.

    Burned it while ironing a shirt, didn't you?

    Could you just take us through that again, I still find the logistics a little confusing.
