    Expensive Split Ticket 10th Apr 17 at 12:04 PM
    Just tried to split a ticket from Bristol to Manchester for 18th May returning on the 21st May, On National Rail website going via Newport the total fare for the whole return journey is £27.05 (by my spiting the ticket myself a return Bristol Newport @£13.05 (walk on fare no time restriction) then £14.50 (walk on fare no time restriction) Newport to Manchester Piccadilly.
    When I went on to the Split ticket site I am informed the cheapest fare is £23.00 (single, plus £0.75 booking fee).
    The lesson is try to split the ticket yourself - it can save serious money

    Yes, I've recently found exactly the same.

    Return from Stoke-on-Trent to York with a change at Manchester Piccadilly for 2 people with a railcard. Cheapest I could find on the split ticket sites was over £50 but by buying myself return tickets from Stoke-Mcr and Mcr-York I got them for £27. Bit of a difference for the same trains!
