I want to make this journey twice a month, there and back and stay for a few days. I can pay for half of the petrol

I assume you're asking about Bradford and Banbury in the UK (there are places with the same names in e.g. the US)?

Have a look at car share sites like www.blablacar.co.uk , www.gocarshare.com and www.liftshare.com/uk and perhaps post on them with your dates?

The cheapest rail return fare is £97.20 but you could save money (if not time) by getting a National Express coach from Bradford to Oxford then the ordinary Stagecoach bus from Oxford to Banbury.

Yes the UK, thanks for the referrals. Coaches and trains are too expensive, it's £50 for a return

I hope you find a lift but, frankly, I think the chances of someone travelling Bradford > Banbury and back on dates which suit you are very low.

Other routes might offer a higher chance e.g. Leeds > Oxford. You could use ordinary buses to start & finish the journey.

Imo, hitch-hiking in the UK just isn't worth it nowadays. Apart from the obvious personal risks, the vast, vast majority of transport operators no longer pick up hitch-hikers because of insurance restrictions. You'll be reliant on 'ordinary' drivers, the vast majority of whom no longer pick up hitch-hikers because of the potential risks.

Maybe try to save up the coach fare?
