On this page, there are useful tips to help you book cheap train tickets to Weston-super-Mare

Tip 1 If you can, book in advance for the cheapest tickets
Book your journey early to get the best price on trains to Weston-super-Mare. Most operators release advance tickets up to 12 weeks before travel. Advance fares 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 Avoid booking fees
Other ticket retailers charge fees for each journey you book with them. Trainline always adds an additional booking fee to your ticket cost. Split My Fare does not make you pay a booking fee; only if you manage to split your ticket will we take 15% of the savings made. If we don't find you a split ticket, there will be no fee.
Tip 3 Claim a refund when your train is delayed
There is no guarantee that your train will depart on time or that you won't arrive at your destination late. Delay Repay enables you to claim a full or partial refund when your trains are delayed, whatever the reason. Eligibility for compensation differs across train companies, but you can generally get a refund on any delay over 15 minutes. Check with the operator what their policy is and apply for the refund through them.

Tip 4 Stay away from popular times of travel
Your journey can be expensive if you travel to a popular destination like Weston-super-Mare at a busy time. If possible, travel outside peak hours to make savings. Taking your trip on a weekday instead of at the weekend can also help save you money. Consider travelling from a less popular station rather than the city centre.
Tip 5 Make savings on group travel
3-9 people can save on their journey using a group save discount. You can get up to 1/3 off your fare when you book together and travel on the same train at off-peak times. Group travel may involve many paper tickets, especially if we split your fare. Collect with e-Tickets and forward them to your group.
Tip 6 Compare the price of single and return tickets
When taking a round trip to Cambridge and looking for cheap train tickets to Cambridge, it is worth checking if two single tickets are cheaper than a return. When you use SplitMyFare, we automatically work this out for you, selling you the cheapest combination of tickets.
