    I was hoping to make use of this offer, but unfortunately I live in the far South West. How can a company call itself South West trains and only go down as far as Exeter?

    I agree!
    I live in Tiverton (20 miles North of Exeter) and am astonished to see our line is excluded too! So no cheap fares to Bristol, Exeter or London. :-(

    i just read the terms and conditions etc, and im not entirely sure if i could still use this for a single,as it talks about the return must be made on the same day

    what about if i am going to London for a week, can i not use this voucher from Portsmouth - London to get a single only?

    'Cheap Day Return' tickets work out only a fraction more than a single. So if you use this voucher and then only use the ticket as a single, it would still definitely be worth it.

    I did a quick price check on TheTrainLine.com and a standard single from Portsmouth to London Waterloo is £23.00. A Cheap Day Return is £23.90.

    After using this voucher discount, the ticket should cost £11.95. It still represents a huge saving even if you use it as a single-way journey like you describe.

    You have to go to the link in the first post, fill out the form and print out the voucher.

    I haven't used one yet, but it looks like it's linked to your name/address details, and is valid only for journeys you specify on the online form, so you can't transfer them between people.

    Unless of course you can book a £1 single on www.megatrain.com and it will be even cheaper than this offer .
