Short Notes: This FREE app/website will look at all the options on your train route and see where you can save money. I use to do this manually and it takes an age but you can save over £100 on some return journeys!
First incarnation so its "today only" hopefully with future train dates getting added.
Free TicketySplit app slashes train fares
Revolutionary new split ticket tool | Uncover hidden ticket combinations to cut the cost
Train split ticketing gives massive legal savings on scores of routes, even though you travel on the SAME TRAIN at the SAME TIME. Eg, a Solihull to Reading single costs £47. Yet the train stops at Banbury, so instead buy Solihull to Banbury & Banbury to Reading tickets & it costs just £23, saving £24. The problem's been finding when this trick works - until now.
New free MSE split ticket app: Download our new TicketySplit Lite iPhone app or bookmark the TicketySplit mobile site. Tell it your journey, and it'll tell you where to split and the saving. It may be slow on day one.
It's for walk-on singles. This first incarnation doesn’t cover advances or returns, only ‘today tickets’. Always check their prices too, as often they’re cheaper. To split ‘em, find where the single’s split as often it’s the same, then check prices to see if it works.
Why does it work? Because train fares and logic go together like Coco Pops and ketchup. Yet it does work. They can ask you to get off and on the train, but we've only ever heard that once in six years. See full Split Ticket help.
How to buy tix. Ask at station kiosks (not machines) for separate tix (you can buy tix for anywhere at any station).
How does the app make money? Quite simply, it doesn't. It's free, with no ads, so please be prudent, we pay each time you search. We just wanted to go for it. If it's huge and costs us a packet, we'll need to look at how we fund it.
