I was just wondering how much money I spend while living in Staines and traveling sometimes to London.
For example: I found that trains costs:
1 ticket from Staines to Waterloo costs 7,5 pounds.
So if I want to travel to London 3 times a week for instead, it will be cost me 15 pounds * 3 = 45 pounds per week.
Per month it's 180 pounds!
Add to this other transport costs, like the tube, buses. Assume 40 pounds per month.
Is is ~220 pounds per month.
Am I correct with the numbers? What do you think? Maybe London costs will be cheaper than I assumed?
Anyway, if I have to spend 220 pounds per month on transport costs when living in Staines, so I prefer live in London and pay 274 pounds per month (only 50 more) and have unlimited London's Underground, buses plus trains Waterloo<->Staines.
Am I right, right? ;-)
well... what do you suggest me with where to live in London? Is it possible to find a room to rent near London Waterloo for ~400 pounds per month ??
THANK YOU GUYS FOR THE HELP :-)
