You may be used to going to a station and buying a ticket to where you want to go. Or maybe going online and doing the same. But there’s often a cheaper way. Split ticketing is where you buy more than one ticket to do your journey. For example, instead of buying a ticket from Birmingham to Leeds, you might buy tickets from Birmingham to Derby, Derby to Sheffield and Sheffield to Leeds.
It can sometimes be much cheaper than buying a through ticket and it’s perfectly legal. The guard will know exactly what you’re doing and will expect you to be doing it.
TrainSplit helps you to find the cheapest combination of tickets automatically, along with a host of other benefits that you won’t get elsewhere.
