UK domestic flights drop in price following tax cut – with new Ryanair routes
A return journey from Edinburgh to Bournemouth cost just £38 by plane but soared to a whopping £127 on the train. However, the plane journey emits around 131 percent more CO2 than travelling by train.
Rory Boland, Which? Travel Editor, said: “As travellers become increasingly concerned about the environmental impact of their journeys, many face a difficult trade off between the price of their ticket and the cost to the planet, with just three out of ten journeys we looked at working out cheaper by rail.
“For those who prefer to travel by train, there are steps you can take to cut costs.
“Take the time to compare dates and times to see if cheaper fares are available, and look into what railcards you might be eligible for, as these can save you up to a third of the ticket price.
