Travel: Two For The Price Of One
Saturday 29 August 1998
The best deal in the Scottish Tourist Board's new Autumn Gold brochure is a return sleeper ticket from London Euston to Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Fort William, Glasgow or Inverness for pounds 49.50 each, if two people travel together. Book a week in advance, travel between 27 September and 20 December and hold a valid Autumn Gold card (free; call 08705 511 511).
Take your partner on a day-trip to the Channel Islands for 10 guineas each. A new fast ferry, operated by Channel Hoppers (0800 735 0000) links Portsmouth with Alderney (on Fridays and Sundays) and Jersey (daily). The normal day return ticket costs pounds 21 per person, but on most dates in September two people can travel for the price of one (pounds 10.50, or 10 guineas, each).
