    I'm travelling from Tiverton Parkway to London Paddington on the 13th November after 17:00 and coming back on sunday after 17:00 - can anyone find a good split ticket or cheap way of getting there as i've had a look but cant seem to find anything.

    Any help would be very much appreciated!

    Thanks!
    "Can't seem to find anything"?

    This splitfare website has been down for several weeks now.

    Anyone know what's happening?

    Flexible return at £65 on all trains (no need to book) or advance singles at £25 each way on a wide range of trains. £12 each way if you can wait until around 9pm

    I don't believe you've looked at all. Else you have a misguided idea of what constitutes cheap.

    Edit - if you book on the First Great Western site there is a discount of 10% on the advance singles

    Just misguided! Sorry for late reply, forgot i posted and didnt subscribe to it!! Anyway, those prices you've found are about right, £25 each way, but in the past they have been cheaper. cant wait till 9pm for a £12 ticket :-( - its a lot cheaper to drive at the time I want to go!

    Can the ticket be split anywhere on the network for cheaper tickets?


    Possibly Bristol - but it's a longer way round. Might be worth trying Westbury or Pewsey as another alternative. There aren't that many stations to split at - once you get into the suburban area cheap tickets dry up.

    That's the best you are going to get on those trains.

    However, if you can leave Weymouth either an hour before or after, you can save another £4.25.

    Had a quick look for you and the £60.80 Off Peak Return (1adult + 2 children with F&F Railcard) I think is going to be your cheapest option.

    Definitely get a Family and Friends Railcard it will save loads, you can use this discount code if it helps but its only valid if you buy it online and I don't know if you would get in time wot with the past postal strike backlog:confused:Halfterm25
