The easy way to make your train travel up to 40% cheaper

Split ticketing helps you find cheap train tickets by simply splitting your journey across two or more tickets.
Thousands of people now enjoy rail travel that's up to 40% cheaper—and you can too!

How does split ticketing work?

With our site it’s quick and easy. Imagine you're travelling from Birmingham to Leeds:

  • A return ticket costs £75.50*.
  • With Railway Mission Rail Bookings you can buy a train ticket from Birmingham to Derby, another from Derby to Sheffield and finally one from Sheffield to Leeds, all for just £49.30.
  • That's a remarkable saving of £25.80.

*All fares quoted are Off-Peak (returning the same day) and accurate as of July 2023. Saving at peak times can be even greater.

What do I need to do to get cheaper train tickets?

Using Railway Mission Rail Bookings is speedy and simple. Our powerful search engine will find you the cheapest train tickets ready for you to make your booking.

Will I have to get on and off the train with split ticketing?

You can relax and enjoy the journey! Even with multiple tickets, you stay onboard. If you’re in First Class, you may have to move seats (but not disembark the train) if they have been pre-allocated.

About Railway Mission

Railway Mission is a Christian faith-based charity offering independent, confidential, impartial pastoral care to the railway community and members of the public affected by rail operations. Each of our regionally-based chaplains aims to be an impartial ‘friend’ for those who work on the railways. Regardless of faith, gender, sexual orientation, our chaplains offer face-to-face year around support, especially during an individual’s time of loneliness, stress, depression, bereavement or illness.

Many are experiencing family breakdown, mental ill-health, bereavement, financial difficulties, being victims of crime and much more. Rail staff approach our chaplains for support through these difficult times as a friend and colleague, rather than phone a stranger to receive counselling support to talk through personal difficulties. But railway chaplains have also supported railway staff and police in the aftermath of major incidents, such as train crashes or terror attacks.

Railway Mission is a registered charity in England and Wales (1128024) and in Scotland (SC045897). A company limited by guarantee registered in England and Wales (06519565).
