I was looking at the Plusbus ticket for Dartford and read online on the Plusbus
website the following :-

Just £1.50 a day during June & July when bought online (from participating websites).

It lists southeasternrailway as the site to buy tickets from but when I put in Dartford (the code given K455 for Dartford +Plusbus doesn't seem to be accepted!) it then says the Plusbus ticket is at the standard price of £3.90

Is this a glitch?

Not sure what other participating websites there are - however RSH does the same.

I know the weather isn't quite what we'd expect for June so maybe the websites are confused and think its March.... :)

Indeed. The participating websites are the ones powered by the infamously awful Thetrainline. The ATOS Origin WebTIS sites (such as SouthEastern) are not participating.

Also, it is correct to enter the destination as Dartford. The PlusBus ticket would be offered as a separate add-on at the next stage.

The web site is quite misleading as if you choose Dartford you get the following information...

Fares - season tickets:
Adult: 7-days £13, month £43, 3-months £115, Year £420. Child: sorry, no discount available.

Which implied to me that Southeasternrailway.co.uk was indeed one of the participating web sites - and its not as mentioned in a previous post....

Wonder how many people would get caught out by this!
