With an announcement this week that train prices are set to rise by 6.2% in January (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-19251068), passengers are seeking to cut the cost of their rail tickets as much as possible.

Split ticketing isn’t a new term, but for those unfamiliar, it means you purchase tickets for two parts instead of buying one ticket for your whole journey. Don’t worry; you don’t have to rush from one platform to another with a gigantic suitcase at a speed surpassing even Usain Bolt; you can stay on the same train for your whole journey. When I split my fare from Newcastle to Sheffield last week, I had a ticket from Newcastle to York and York to Sheffield; I stayed on the same train and saved £12 on the standard £54 fare. This meant I could treat myself to dinner on arrival; yes, I did eat in a restaurant on my own.

As former students, we especially understand that everyone wants the cheapest tickets and wants to get them quickly. Split My Fare provides a quick and easy-to-use booking engine to save you money with split ticketing.
