The new feature is called ‘SplitSave’.
SplitSave gives customers access to ‘split tickets’ on eligible routes across the UK, offering them the chance to make savings on thousands of journeys nationwide. The new feature means that UK train travellers could collectively save a huge £340 million in 2020.
SplitSave finds clever combinations of tickets to save customers money on 64% of routes nationwide. It automatically ‘splits’ their trip into multiple legs, without any need for customers to change trains unnecessarily or make changes to their route – all they need to do is show different tickets along their journey. This year alone, each customer could save £260 by using the feature.
Some of the greatest SplitSave savings can be found on the following popular routes:
|Popular routes providing significant savings through SplitSave:||Average potential saving through SplitSave:|
|Manchester Piccadilly to London Euston||£80.10|
|Edinburgh Waverley to London King’s Cross||£79.85|
|Stoke on Trent to London Euston||£65.62|
|London Paddington to Taunton||£58.11|
|Durham to London King’s Cross||£56.49|
