The cheapest through fare for your itinerary is

Southampton Central - Worcester Stations
Route Via Salisbury
Off-Peak Return
£44.00

Of course a Freedom of Severn & Solent 3-in-7 Rover is only £42 and is valid from 0900 on weekdays and is suitable for your itinerary.

I should have guessed you'd reply bb21 - having just done the Severn and Solent. I was just wondering whether anyone else would have suggested it and whether the Ticket Office would suggest it if you asked just for the specified journey. It is a bit misleading when the websites tell you £44 is the cheapest. When obviously £42 is cheaper and you could make 2 days more journeys in the area for that.
