Hi,

I've been looking for Bedford - Arundel tickets for my mum for this Friday/Saturday. One adult, no railcard, going there Friday, need to arrive by 11:00. Returning Saturday, departing around midday.

Cheapest I can find is a combination of a Off-Peak Return London - Arundel (£26.95 with Southern online discount), a Bedford - London peak single (£23.50) and a Bedford - London Super Off Peak Day Return (discarding the outward half - cost £14).

Total: £64.45 plus cross-London travel (probably going to convince her to get an Oyster card)

Can anyone do any better? :)

It's cheaper to use National Rail for cross-London Travel.

Agreed.
a Bedford - London peak single (£23.50) and a Bedford - London Super Off Peak Day Return (discarding the outward half - cost £14).
These tickets are issued Bedford - London Thameslink and may be used to London Bridge on an FCC service towards Brighton. Remain on the train at London Bridge, and use the London - Arundel ticket from here. There are a number of possible changing points. I find that East Croydon usually gives a connection on the same platform island.

Not necessary on this occasion.

Do you realise the first train from London Bridge available on the SVR London - Arundel is 0957 (First service with a valid connection) arriving at 1129.

Yes I am aware of that, hence suggesting Victoria :)

Ah - OK! Think the change is easier at LBG or ECR anyway - with the latter, the 0948 service is valid, arriving 1102 on an Off-Peak ticket.

One thing that is confusing me slightly - WebTIS is happy to sell me a Bedford - Arundel Off-Peak Return for any train on the Friday, including the morning peak - is this a bug or is there something obvious (or not obvious!) Im missing? Restriction code says after 0930 only.
