Default Transportation

Checked on train fares from Southampton to the Cotswolds in May and it is approximately $54US for one way ticket there. Then we are going to London from Cotswolds and that one way ticket is $42US. When we get to London we will use a travel card.

My question - is there a way to get to Cotswolds and to London cheaper than the above $.

Any suggestions on the cheapest to rent a car while in the Cotswolds for 3 days. Getting rates of about $300.00. Is this about right??

Help appreciated.

With more than 1 person, I'd think it would be cheaper and easier to just have a car the whole time (Southampton to Cotswolds to London). It looks to me like a small car can be had for 5 days for 179 pounds (auto) or 129 pounds (manual), assuming that you have credit card CDW coverage.

bus fars are much lower than trains, ride from Southampton to Heathrow was about $15, bus terminal is at terminal 2 at Heathrow, they take credit cards

Wow - maybe we should walk. We have rented a car (hope its small) and will pick up in Moreton-in-Marsh and travel around the Cotswolds for 3 days and return to train station before heading to London. Maybe we can afford 1 or 2 tanks. Maybe we should drink the gas instead of the wine??

You may find it asier if not cheaper to go by bus fron terminal 2 at Heathrow directly to the Cots. Look up bus sceds in Gr. Britain, have excellent info.
