Well, I finally bought my train ticket. Every time I clicked on the senior discount, however, the price went up! Eventually, I called and was told that the price for the ticket which I was trying to purchase already counted as a discounted price. Hence, when I clicked on the senior discount, it reverted to full price! So, in the end, it was cheaper to buy the discounted advance ticket at the regular adult rate. So much for waiting!
Live and learn!
Isn’t that one of the things getting old is supposed to be about anyway?
