The creative, and legitimate, way to bring down the cost of your UK train tickets!
Split ticketing combines discounted fares on a route to bring the cost down of a individual ticket.
Why does this happen? It is a quirk of the UK fares system that sees different companies setting different fares for sections of a route. One company sets the through price of the trip A to B whereas other companies set shorter distance fares from A to C and another company for C to B!
* I get a small commission from any tickets booked. Note that I earn more from the Transport for Wales link. These commissions help to fund my travels.
