SPLIT TICKETING ON TV
I received a text, a missed call and a Facebook message from my Mum in the space of half an hour last Tuesday. Was it a family emergency? No, she was contacting me to say that a show on ITV had been talking about split tickets. When I looked into it, Martin Lewis had been talking about how to get cheaper train fares, with the main focus on split tickets.
As we’ve mentioned in a previous blog post, with train ticket prices constantly on the rise we’re pushing for split ticketing, which is the cheapest way to buy tickets to be made more public; the audience of millions who watched the show will certainly have helped with that. We could see the results straight away; traffic to our site from Google searches for split ticketing went up that day.
There are a few sites around that make finding split ticket savings easier as the show said; but SplitMyFare is the best of them. Why’s that? As well as telling you where’s best to split your journey; we provide a step by step guide to make it easy to buy your split ticket with us. We thought we’d help you out because it’s normally a fairly complicated art.
As the show said, with train tickets “Take the logic book and through it out the window”; it’s a little bit crazy that buying two tickets for your journey can make it a lot cheaper, even though you stay on exactly the same train. It doesn’t just work for single tickets either; if you’re travelling return you can again make massive savings; just buy the split tickets again, but in reverse. Split ticketing isn’t just for those buying standard fares either; you can also get your advance tickets cheaper.
