National Rail Split Train Ticket FAQ's
Although split tickets for National Rail train journeys work in exactly the same way as any other train tickets on the National Rail network many passengers who usually book the more expensive direct National Rail train tickets often ask the following questions.
What Are Split National Rail Train Tickets?
Split National Rail Train Tickets is when you purchase separate tickets for two or more sectors of the National Rail rail route you wish to travel instead of just one more expensive through ticket without affecting your travel options in any way.
For example, if you wanted to travel from Station A to Station D, you would expect to buy a ticket direct from A to D. However, you may find it a lot cheaper to buy a ticket from A to B, and another from B to C and still another from C to D for a cheaper combined train ticket price. This is especially true when not all sectors of your journey are during peak time.
You will still travel on the same National Rail train, at the same times and in the same seat but with two or more cheaper tickets instead of one expensive ticket and, contrary to what some may say, you do not have to break your journey at any of the intermediate stations. This is what split ticketing is all about.
Which Train Company or National Rail Route Can I Use?
Unless the split ticket say it can only be used on a specific train company, they are valid on all national rail operator services on your National Rail rail route within the zones for which the ticket is issued.
Do I Need Change Trains Where I Split Tickets?

In event you do need to change trains (which you would then normally have had to do in any event) this will be made known to you before you complete the reservation.
Do You Split Advance and Return Tickets as well as Standard Fares?
Yes, we split your fare for all ticket types and will likely make savings on all of them.

Is Splitting National Rail Train Tickets Legal?
