I am sure I am (as usual) the last person on the planet to know about this, but www.splityourticket.co.uk basically works out for you the cheapest way to buy a train ticket.
So in a nutshell on our standard Virgin trains Coventry to London peak return, which if you buy on the day (and I always do) is in excess of £100, www.splityourticket.co.uk advises to go for:
- Coventry <-> Rugby (£4.90)
- Rugby <-> Milton Keynes (£11.50)
- Milton Keynes <-> Euston (£32.40)
Total price £48.80, saving £58.20… I suppose its prudent to check that your train is actually going via those stations though!
PS Steve Glen found this not me, but I thought it was so great, I had better blog about it!
