One way only, so double the price for a return ticket.

GWR are the worst train company known to man and as such I only travel when the tickets are these prices. Thanks for the heads up!

Thanks for heads up - heading for a weekend day trip to Oxford from London for £7.30 after using railcard too.

Bath to London £10 bargain!

How can they be worse than Southern?!

We were made to pay for more tickets after they cancelled the booked train. This is for 50+ passengers. GWR are scum. Train service is rarely punctual.

those prices r still a joke. re nationalise railways. still cheaper in my car

Was going to moan about EMT - I think Southern beats all atm.

Slough to Oxford 15quid. London to oxford 5quid. Why?

With the delays it'll be quicker to walk!

I have to agree that Southern are bad atm. But GWR are, and have always been bad. No idea how they keep that franchise.

Hot from me !

Have just purchased 2 sets of single tickets for myself and the family (2 Adults and 2 children) for Truro > Paddington and returning 5 days later, Feb 1/2 term week for £45 each way (plus Nectar Points as well) ...

Normal prices are £285 return, so this is a proper bargain

GWR payment often doesn't work in Chrome so have to switch to... to Internet Explorer *shudder*

Thanks for posting but I cant seem to get to a list of included start stations and destinations.

The franchise tender competition was put on hold in 2012, following the West Coast refranchising prices collapsing.

I don't think there is a list, you just put in the stations and dates you want and do a search, if there's any of these special offer tickets available they'll have "January Sale" in red next to them.

Re-nationalising would, as Southern have shown, lead to a strike every other day and a block on modernisation so this would make the railways even more expensive...

Can I take bike with me?

I'm not sure how you travel, but I'm usually aware of where I want to start from and get to. Must be quite exciting to pick these from a list

It's pretty wise having your bike when travelling on GWR as when the train breaks down you have a plan B

when you can buy SWT tickets on megabus for 90p from London to Devon

Cost of tickets is a joke: Reading to Paddington return peak is £52 (how can they justify that!) and you NEVER get a seat and are lucky to get on the train. Reading to Paddington is Europe's busiest commuter route/railways line.

lol, worst deal ever. tickets from Reading are DOUBLE normal price!!!!!!!

Or I could travel over such a distance for work that many start and end points are applicable to me.....hum which is the most likely option.
