A new rail tickets website promises to find commuters cut price tickets by revealing hidden cheaper options.

Ticketclever.com, a new rail UK travel booking site, claim to have cracked the complexity of other website's algorithms to bring out the best priced fares for on the day travel.

CEO of the site Jeremy Acklam said ticket buying should be easier and more transparent, which is where the idea came from.

"It is our mission to put rail travellers first, by making it easy to find and book cheap train fares using our clever algorithm," he said.

"In an era where the price of train travel is under scrutiny, it’s frustrating that getting the best deal on UK train journeys isn’t straightforward.

"With so many fare combinations for each journey, it’s very difficult for passengers to be certain they have a good deal."

Customers can make comparisons and choose the best fare for their needs and those planning ahead can also find discounted Advance Purchase fares.
