Merlin (with spoilers): the great hitch-hike.

Another small thought about Merlin.

When Roddy and Grundo are travelling to London to Maxwell Hyde's place, they
start by hitch-hiking, because they have no resouces to do otherwise.

But they fall in first with the hereditary witches, and later with the Lady of
Governance, who are willing to help them, and expend quite a lot of magic doing
so.  But the journey still feels like a hitch-hike - they are choosing methods
of travel for minimum cost, rather than maximum effectiveness.  Is there no
public transport on which they could have bought passage?  Or are all these
magic users really so poor?  I am puzzled.
