Cheapest vs Flexible Fares

Trainsplit simplifies your ticket options into two main categories to make your booking experience straightforward: 'CHEAPEST' and 'FLEXIBLE.'

Cheapest Tickets - For Those with a Set Travel Plan

Opt for CHEAPEST FARES if you know when and where you want to travel. This category includes ADVANCE FARES (Fixed Time), offering savings of up to 80%. These fares are typically released UP TO 12 weeks in advance, with occasional later releases. Keep checking regularly for the best prices, as availability is subject to change.

Flexible Tickets - When Your Plans Require Freedom

Choose FLEXIBLE FARES if you prefer flexibility in your travel plans. This category encompasses SUPER OFF PEAK, OFF PEAK, or ANYTIME fares, each offering varying levels of flexibility. SUPER OFF PEAK tickets have specific time and route restrictions, OFF PEAK provides flexibility on quieter routes and times, while ANYTIME fares offer complete flexibility.

Search for Separate Journeys - Adjust Your Own Travel Flexibility

Trainsplit gives you the flexibility to search for separate journeys for your outward and return trips. For instance, if you have a set plan for your outward journey but prefer flexibility for the return, you can select the cheapest option, which is Advances for the outward and flexible-type tickets for the return.

Our smart booking engine ensures the best prices for every combination of your journeys.
