Buying Split Train Tickets

This is a clever way of reducing your rail tickets. You simply buy two tickets instead of one - notionally splitting your journey at one of several special stations. This clever Money Saving Expert tool tells you where to split your journey. You can achieve savings of up to 40% - often without even getting off the train! Worth a try especially for some season ticket holders!

However note:
  • This tool searches single tickets using only one split
  • You may need to change trains
  • The train must call at all stations you buy tickets to and from
  • Splits aren't always the same for the same train
  • Only five searches per day

National Rail Enquiries booking and timetable Information

The National Rail Enquiries website is now excellent! It literally list all the fares, including the cheapest, and highlights the most economical times of the day. However if you prefer to speak to a person call 03457 484950. This allows you to both plan your journey and buy the tickets - again usually at the best prices.

All this said I would probably use the Split Ticket site for the very cheapest tickets of all!
