Agent: Oh, about 200 miles.
Emad: Can you tell me the best way to get there?
Agent: Well, there are a number of ways. You can go by train.
Emad: How much does the train cost?
Agent: Well, a return ticket costs £ 122 and takes about three hours.
Emad: And what about a coach from Manchester to Edinburgh? How much is that?
Agent: Well, the coach is much cheaper. It costs £58 for a return ticket. But the journey is longer – it takes about five and a half hours.

Emad: Mmm…that’s a bit too long. Can you fly to Edinburgh from Manchester?
Agent: Yes, you can from Manchester airport.
Emad: So how long does that take?
Agent: Just over an hour.
Emad: I see. And how much does the plane cost?
Agent: There are lots of fares but an economy class return is about £ 190.
