This page will provide useful tips to book cheap train tickets to Weymouth.

Tip 1 Buy in advance
Train companies typically release cheap tickets to Weymouth several weeks before travel. You can buy these cheaper tickets up to an hour before your train departs, but they tend to sell out fast, so make sure to take advantage and book as quickly as possible.
Tip 2 Cut costs by avoiding fees on your trains to Portsmouth
Some retailers charge a booking fee every time you travel by train with them. At Split My Fare, we don't charge you a booking fee or ask you to pay for using your credit card either. The only fee we pass on to you is 15% of any saving we make by splitting your fare, no split fare = no fee.
Tip 3 Refunds are available for delayed travel to Weymouth Train Station
Your train may not necessarily be on time, meaning it is late in getting to your destination. The delay repay scheme gives a full or partial refund on your train ticket. Check the policy of the company you travel with to find out how long a delay you can get compensation for; often, a refund is available for a 15-minute delay. You can get your money back directly through the operator.
Tip 4 Busier routes tend to cost more
Avoiding peak hours and popular routes can be vital in finding the cheapest tickets. Demand affects ticket prices, so if your journey is busy, the price will be higher. Travelling somewhere quiet, outside the town centre, will get you cheaper train tickets to Weymouth.

Tip 5 Use Groupsave discount
You can save up to 1/3 on your train tickets by booking as a group of 3-9 adults travelling during off-peak hours. The offer is valid whether collecting your ticket on departure or receiving e-Tickets and is deducted automatically.
Tip 6 Two single tickets may be cheaper than a return
Often you will want to make a return journey when travelling to Weymouth, and you might think that a return ticket will be the cheapest. Two singles often cost less than a return, so look at both options before you book. Split My Fare automatically checks all possible combinations to find you the lowest fare for your journey.
Tip 7 Less direct trains can make savings
Weymouth is a long way South, so if you are travelling from far afield, you may want to break up your journey. Slower trains on a less-direct service can save you money; we will let you know when it's the cheapest option. Select the Fastest Train option to get to Weymouth as quickly as possible.
Tip 8 Compare standard and first-class
When demand for first-class tickets is low, this can reduce their cost to around the same price or near that of a standard fare. Travelling first-class means you can benefit from complimentary food and drink, a more comfortable seat and free wi-fi in most cases. You will arrive at your destination in a more relaxed mood.
