Is it worth getting a coach rather than the train to save money? | Money

Every week a Guardian Money reader submits a question, and it’s up to you to help him or her out – a selection of the best answers will appear in next Saturday’s paper.

I have to travel from London to Durham on Good Friday and am so broke I’m considering ditching the train in favour of a coach. A lack of planning means the three-hour train trip is £70. The coach takes seven-and-a-half hours, but is just £12. Are coaches OK these days, or will I regret this big time?
