    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!
