Hi all am travelling from

Birmingham to Barmouth on Sat 7th July
Barmouth to Birmingham on Sun 8th July
(Not flexible on dates and no railcard)

National Rail website says £48 for a return.

Can I split the journey cheaply?

Thank you!

Hugh

Simple split at Welshpool gets it down to £43.

Your best bet is to look on the East Coast website, find the calling points of the train and try splitting to those ones rougly half-way (Off-Peak [month] Return tickets are usually only offered on longer journeys, for some value of long).

Advance tickets at £13/17 each way are available on this route. However the quota for that weekend has not yet been released (they are available for the previous weekend). When released they will probably be the cheapest way there & back.

Advance fares start at £13 single (So £26 return), but you have to stick to the booked trains. They haven't been released yet for your dates, but they have for the week before, so they should be released within a week.

EDIT: Beaten to it!

Arriva Trains Wales. You will be able to buy the ticket from any TOC's website, or at any staffed station though.
