'Split ticket' rail fares to go mainstream say experts [BBC News]





Date: 11/01/2020

Thousands of passengers could save money on rail fares as 'split tickets' become more common, experts predict. Buying multiple tickets to split one journey into sections can work out to be cheaper than having a single ticket. Users do not have to change trains, as long as their train stops at the final destination printed on each ticket - but the practice has been 'niche'. Booking site Trainline has now released a SplitSave tool to help find cheaper journeys by splitting trips into legs. 'Split tickets' are legal provided that trains stop at ticket destinations.
