topic ref. 80131442


The inconsistent nature of modern railway tariffs means that when travelling between A and C via B, it can be cheaper to buy two single tickets, for A to B and B to C. The National Rail Conditions of Carriage permit this, and the holder may remain on the same train from A to C, but only on condition that the train calls at B en route. This is known as ticket-splitting.

It is not possible to measure the extent of this in practice, and it may not be very great, but it probably inflates modern passenger totals to some degree since each ticket bought will be counted.
