    Do these tickets actually exist? No matter which dates Ive tried to get them for Ive never managed to find them, best Ive found is £13.90 single. Looking to travel out on the 9th feb approx midday (need time to arrive from Newcastle to London) and return the next day. Anyone know how to find these tickets, or indeed if its possible a through ticket from Newcastle-Portsmouth (return) which would be cheaper? All fares would be adult. Cheers. Chris

    Avantix shows on AP fares. The cheapest is £28.10 CDR (hardly cheap if you ask me!)

    Try back around the 10th January. The Southern website is currently showing the £3 advance bookings up until 12th December only. Hope this helps.

    Regards
    Marc

    P.S. You wouldn't happen to be going down for the Portsmouth vs Sunderland match, would you?

    Thanks, Indeed I would. Tickets are only £20 apparently and I have a few days booked off work. Always enjoy travelling to Pompey, but I dont fancy 8/9 hours either way on a supporters coach. Was really hoping to have some travel in place before the 10th January, and if necessary will get the national express coach instead. Im hoping to book the book £15 singles Newcastle - Kings Cross next week.

    Take a look at megatrain for the SWT fast services from London, Southern tickets are not yet open for booking for the dates you need.
