Has anyone had any success with the Seat frog app? I love travelling 1st class but some of the fares recently have been quite expensive. I downloaded the app several months ago and have not tried it yet.
How much has it cost you all to upgrade your tickets using the Seat frog app? I hear you can upgrade from £5.00. There is 2 options you can bid or upgrade now. Since writing this blog I have booked a standard ticket for one of my trips to see how much it will cost me to upgrade. I probably should have just booked direct but I wanted to see if I could save more money. When I have been on my journey in June I will write a blog on my experiences using the app and how much it cost me in the end.
I love trying to save money and apparently my Grandma was exactly the same, as me so I am following in her footsteps. My Grandma used to stock pile which is buy when it is on offer. I do the same if it is a product I use regularly. I watch programmes in America and some have a whole room dedicated to their stockpile. I have not gone that far as we do not have the space. I thought I would write a list of ways to save money.
When travelling by train try splitting your journey for Example Lincoln to London Kings Cross split it Lincoln to Peterborough and then Peterborough to Kings Cross. I did this on my last trip and it saved me a few pounds. I rang up and managed to get the same seat for the whole journey.
It’s that time of year when we are trying to decide what holidays we should go on !!!! We decided this year that we were not going to go on a cruise as we had done one last year so a change would be a good idea. We like to make each holiday different so we don’t compare.
I started looking at different hotels in Majorca and then showed my mum a hotel that looked ideal. My mum decided that cruising was a better option as we would be able to do more, more food options and the hotel was in the middle of nowhere.
The next decision was when to go and where to go. He does not like flying so prefers doing cruises from Southampton. My Dad does not think travelling to London via train would be much fun.
Mum and I have cracked it. My Mum and I get the train from Newark to London travelling 1st class which always starts the journey off to a good start. We then walk to Renaissance St Pancreas hotel and get an Uber to Paddington station. We catch the Heathrow express to the airport and always stay in a hotel the night before.
Any cruise lines that would like to provide a free cruise for me and my mum in a suite would be much appreciated!!!!!!!!
Here is a photo of my Mum at about 4 am. We take photos of each other in case we lose one another.
Here is a 20% discount off family and friends railcard. I have purchased a two together as my mum and I have travelled a number of times and makes it so worthwhile. We travelled 1st class from Newark Northgate to London Kings Cross for only £36 for 2 of us. It was on a Friday so got free alcoholic drinks and foods.
