How Does It Work?

Use our cheapest fare finder to find cheaper trains. You can make big savings on your journey with our booking engine by following the simple steps below:

1. Enter the dates and times of your trip.

2. Enter the departure and arrival station.

3. Enter the details of how many passengers are taking the journey.

4. Add your Railcard if you have one.

Tip 1 If you can, book in advance for the cheapest tickets
To get the best price on trains, book your journey early. Most operators release advance tickets up to 12 weeks before travel. Advance tickets are in high demand, so the earlier you can book, the better. If you can't buy your ticket until the day of travel, advance fares may be available up to one hour before departure if they haven't sold out.
Tip 2 Keep clear of popular routes at busy times
You can find cheaper train tickets by being flexible in travelling at off-peak times on less popular routes. Tickets are priced based on demand; as these times are quieter, prices are usually lower. If you can travel on weekdays, avoiding holiday periods, you can make further savings.
Tip 3 Avoid booking and card fees
Many retailers charge booking fees, some as high as ยฃ3.00, but at Split My Fare, you won't have to pay any booking or card fees. The only charge is 15% of any savings made by splitting your fare, so if we don't find you a split, you won't pay a fee.
