just out of curiosity do u get a seat or u have to travel like in underground?
You get a reserved seat, basically a guaranteed seat for the whole journey.
Fantastic deal, can't understand why this is not hotter.
My local line is the Swansea London line operated by GWR, and prices are usually ridiculous, £105 single from Newport to London on a week day at peak times, this deal allows you to travel for £15 ( Friday 10th June) saving you £90,
Thank you! Booked a one way trip on 8th and will book a cheap coach back on the Monday!

​try Reading to Paddington on gwr or swt. a 25 min journey return was £51.40 a day before the changes. no discounts unless you get a weekly or dead on ticket. only 30 miles too
deal not dead lol
Saw this on Friday, should have posted it. Got three Bristol to Reading returns for 60 all in. Heat.

You need to look at Trainsplit.com - you can often save half your money by splitting tickets! The rail fare world is completely mad. Trainsplit helps restore sanity (and saves loads of money).

​agreed. doesn't work from reading to London but does Reading to Birmingham as you can split at Banbury and stay on the same train. ridiculously it reduces the cost by about 65%
thanks
Nice one, booked up for July
Fantastic deal, just saved £56 on a journey I intend to make in June. Thanks OP
Thanks op I will make use of this deal ...I only use megabus because of the cost of the train but at this price i will definitely use the train..

I don't think GWR do any advance fares from London to Reading so this sale does not cover that. Also you can't buy a cheap advance ticket to Bristol and then get off at Reading! I've tried twice and both times had to pay the fare difference at the ticket barrier as it is against the t&cs of the advance ticket - just like the open jaw flights!
trying to book bristol-oxford-bristol and the cheapest it gives me on the offered days is 40 quid. Normal price. What's going on? Anyone?

Try different dates/times. I think they have a limited number of sale tickets. They're probably all gone for the date you're looking at.

On a similar subject, looking at trains from London - Exeter, sale price is £18 but there are £14 tickets on slightly slower "overtaken" trains. Anyone know if there's any disadvantage to the even cheaper tickets, other than speed? According to the terms, you can change the £14 ticket for a fee, but don't seem to be able to change the £18 sale ticket at all.
