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.
With train ticket prices constantly on the rise, split ticketing is getting ever-popular as passengers look to save money on their travel; the audience of millions who watched the show will undoubtedly have helped. We could see the results immediately, with a significant spike in sales.
The show said that you can save up to 50% on your rail fare by split ticketing; that’s not entirely true; we have seen some customers save over 90% on their tickets.
There are a few retailers around that make finding split ticket savings easier, but we think we’re the best. As well as having a quick and easy-to-use booking engine we don’t charge any booking fees and often find the cheapest tickets. We are easily reachable with your local phone service or smartphone, email and via our app. When we compared the cost of 10 popular train journeys with Trainline, we came out cheaper on all 10.
As the show said, with train tickets, “Take the logic book and throw it out the window”; it’s a little bit crazy that buying multiple tickets for your journey can make it a lot cheaper, even though you stay on the same train.
Split your fare with us now to make big savings!
