I can get advanced tickets via the internet for one half of my journey to London.
I have £15 in train rail travel vouchers, which I intend to use for the 2nd half of my trip to the Kent coast. Does anyone know whether I can use these vouchers to buy my 2nd-half ticket at my starting departure point rather than queue at Victoria London ?
Any advise would be welcome.

You can buy advance ticket from any manned railway station doesn't have to be the start or end destinations either.

No probs with the the advanced tickets for the 1st half of my journey.
My queston was 'I have £15 in train rail travel vouchers, which I intend to use for the 2nd half of my trip to the Kent coast. Does anyone know whether I can use these vouchers to buy my 2nd-half ticket at my starting departure point rather than queue at Victoria London ?'.
Hope that this clarifies.

I have a few queries below :
1. One of my friends bought two rail tickets from Poole railway station; one travelling from Clapham Junction-to-London Victoria and another travelling from London Victoria-to-Broadstairs. She already had an advanced ticket from Poole to Clapham Junction.
2. The train coach, which she was in had no heating between Poole-to-Clapham Junction, and, as a consequence, she developed a chill that meant she couldn't complete her journey and she had to return home to Poole.
3. Due to the above, I assume that she can claim a refund for her unused tickets for Clapham-to-Victoria and Victoria-to-Broadstairs ? If so, who does she claim the money from ? Is is the South-west train station at Poole ?
4. Can she claim money back for the unheated carriage ?
Any advise would be most welcome.
Thanks in advance.

Thank goodness for the continued incompetence from our rail companies !!
Due to the adverse weather, I (and my family) was forced to use our poor railway system to visit family over Xmas and New Year rather than go via car.
We got sixs set of rail tickets for our outward and return journeys. None of these tickets were stamped, clipped or collected from us by any rail inspector. I now intend to claim that these tickets have never been used and to reclaim a refund accordingly. I did exactly the same last year without any probs.
I'm also hopeful that I will be given train vouchers as compensation with regards the poor quality of one of our rail carriages.
This means that my overall rail costs will be very small and will be slightly cheaper than by travelling by car; although car will always be my preferance due to it's convenience and comfort compared with trains.
I just hope the rail companies keep up with their incompetence in the event that I need to use them again.:rotfl::):rotfl:
There’s a trick to extend them
We want to hear from you
