    There is a ticket I am trying to find online (Colchester - London including day travelcard, super off peak return for tomorrow, 16-25 discounted) which brfares claim costs £18.00

    I am trying to buy this online but can only find something similiar for £18.75 - is this the same ticket and there is an error on brfares.com or am I missing something and being silly :-?

    Did you read the warning on the main fares results page?
    Quite a few fares set by Greater Anglia are wrong in the released version of NFM14 used by brfares.com, so they need to be taken with a pinch of salt. £18.75 is indeed the correct fare - it was increased after NFM14 went to press.

    That warning is tiny - took me several minutes just to find where it was!

    But I notice it now and that makes sense. Thanks for your help with this, it's eased my mind

    Remember that BRFares is useful but not definitive.

    Note that brfares.com uses the same data as Avantix Traveller so anyone who purchases the latter will experience the same problem too – only, without the warning.
