Split Ticketing

Barry Doe's Fare Dealer column in the latest issue of Rail (761 12-25 November 2014) rightly praises the arrival of This brilliant site allows you to check for rail fare savings on RETURN tickets as well as single journeys. Better still, there is no charge for using it...

Example splits that it suggests...

Birmingham Moor Street to London Marylebone (Monday-Friday)

05.15 out / 17.15 return - outward split at Banbury and Haddenham & Thame Parkway on Anytime Singles / return on a through Off-Peak Single: Saving £10.90 on the Anytime return

10.15 out / 16.47 return - off-peak return split at Bicester North saving £2.60 on the through Off-Peak return

Birmingham New Street to London Euston (Monday-Friday)

05.29 out / 16.43 return - return split at Milton Keynes and Coventry saving £22.35

10.10 out / 16.43 return - split at Coventry and Milton Keynes saving £69.55

DON'T FORGET that the services have to stop at the stations being used for the split so there is not always the flexibility you might require.
