Plan Your Charing Cross Train Journey
Travel by train to London can often be costly. You can however reduce the cost of your train ticket to London quite considerably by following these simple travel tips:-
Split Your Charing Cross Train Tickets
Split ticketing is something many seasoned passengers on London Charing Cross trains already practice and is where instead of having one train ticket to take you to Charing Cross the journey is broken down into two or more parts with a separate rail ticket for each sector where the train stops.
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.
Split Ticketing is legal and permitted by the National Rail Conditions of Carriage but can be confusing. To take advantage of the huge savings you could enjoy from splitting your London Charing Cross train tickets click here to visit our dedicated split train ticket page.
