  • Just booked return with split ticketing £79 for two tickets, 2hr and 10 minutes to get there and 3 and half to get back, a new ground for me. 
  • When you say split ticketing @Charlton_Stu, how does that work.... a bit like the 'Manningtree Trick'?

    My Son seems to wants to go, but obviously tickets are more expensive now (£88.50 return for me and a 10 year old).

    Cheers

    Example, London to Wolverhampton return.

    Then Wolverhampton to Wigan return.

    You make sure the tickets keep you on the 'through' train.

    A split ticket.

    Talking to yourself again :D
  • Heading up north on the Friday then dragging 3 Blackpool fans down to the game Saturday. Cracking bar crawl in Wigan. 
  • Thanks Chaps, 

    Yep.... I had my Annual Gold Card in, but the Family and Friends gives a larger discount.

    Yep, see it's £47.60 on family and friends... 10:36 out 18:29 back.

    Would this normally be any cheaper split ticketing via Wolves Elfs?

    The £47.60 is not too bad ET
    Even if youd booked a couple of months ago wouldve been nearly £40.
    Wolves is cheaper but a longer journey

    @clb74 is correct.   Doing my way is no guarantee BUT the 2 or 3 times I have done this I have saved between 10-£15 overall.

    The journey is an hour longer maximum.

    Yeah pretty much what @ElfsborgAddick said although in my case it's Rugby, so i have 10.36 - 11.24 Lon to Rugby then 11.28 - 12.43 Rugby to Wigan on the same train, coming back it's 6.29 - 8.42 Wigan to Rugby then 8.43 - 9.57 leaving Rugby. A good app i have on my phone is TrainPal it brings all the cheapest fares up and times, with money off every now and then as well.
