I still think it's worth doing your own research, especially if you can be flexible with times. I got a ticket from Preston to Newcastle with 16-25 railcard down to £7.55, for a ticket which was quoted as £40 on East Coast, but I didn't use ticketysplit. This is one of the regular journeys that I book so I knew to split the ticket at Carlisle. The tool is handy for helping you find out where you could split your ticket if you don't already know, but always check yourself via the operators for the prices. It's well worth the bit of time it takes.

Just wanted to say that my daughter, who is a seasoned traveller, has seen people fined using a spilt ticket. Their crime was not getting off the train at the station that the ticket expired/ restarted. Wouldn't have thought there was anything wrong in this but be warned
Following a recent Court case there has been some confusion over the sale of more than one ticket for use on a train journey. This item is intended to clarify the position.
When a customer asks for the cheapest ticket you are not obliged to offer them a combination of tickets. However, if a customer specifically asks for a particular combination of tickets you must sell those tickets, as long as your office has the necessary fares manuals, ticket issuing system and/or reservation facilities to do so.
NRCoC 17b allows a passenger to use two or more tickets as long as they cover the entire journey and the train the passenger is travelling on calls at the station where they change from one ticket to another.There is no requirement for the passenger to change trains or momentarily step onto the platform."

So my total fare will be £30.10 -- a savings of £37.80. Why didn't your web site find me this split???

Because it combines an Advance with a walk-up ticket. This is complex stuff, and most people who work on "split ticket" sites underestimate the work involved.
I know someone who will have a system that can calculate this, but it won't be ready for a while yet - several months at least.
