The Thrifty focus for today was travel, and how you can get around most cost-efficiently.
Penny wants to make people aware of the Friends and Family Railcards available online at http://www.familyandfriends-
She also advises people to 'be creative' with holidays for their young children, suggesting quick trips to closer locations via slower methods such as sleeper train coaches, and looking at cheap, free and fun activities.
Also, cheap flight bookings are recommended, looking at websites such as Kayak, The Skyscanner or travelsupermarket will often find you cheap tickets.
