How To Save Money By Splitting and Booking Split Train Tickets for Travel On The National Rail Network

All of the train operating companies on the National Rail Network conduct their business under the National Rail Conditions of Carriage and may not hinder or prevent you from using split tickets to reduce the cost of traveling on their service.

Split train tickets are valid on exactly the same trains that you would normally travel on and you don't have to get off the train where you change from one ticket to another. The only thing that you must check is that the train stops at every station where you split tickets. You would not be able to use any train that didn't.

Provided that you are using trains that stop at your split stations and that you were on time for your first train (if any of your tickets are Advance tickets), split tickets give you the same rights as through tickets. In the event of delays, or missing connections you will be entitled to take the next appropriate train.

However, your refund rights are rather more limited since you will have to pay an admin fee for each ticket if you don't travel and want a refund. If you are delayed on your journey, different train companies have different policies on how much compensation you are due..
