    Hi all,

    Can anyone get the cheapest fare going from Leamington to Wrexham with 1 adult, 1 child and a Family and Friends railcard out on the 28th of August, and back on the 30th of August (without any advance tickets) using the following route.

    Outward
    10:04 Leamington-Moor Street
    12:05 New Street-Shrewsbury
    13:25 Shrewsbury-Wrexham

    Return
    12:38 Wrexham-Shrewsbury
    13:31 Shrewsbury-New Street
    14:55/15:15 Moor Street-Leamington

    Cheers!

    If you're going to specify both the route and trains there isn't much that can be done to find cheaper tickets! The only thing you can do is try to see if there's any splits available using www.trainsplit.com.

    Ok so a through ticket for those trains would be:

    From LEAMINGTON SPA
    To WREXHAM GENERAL
    Route ANY PERMITTED
    Type SVR
    Adult £29.45
    Child £8.50


    Total £38.00

    The absolutely cheapest I can find for a fellow Wrexham member....

    From LEAMINGTON SPA
    To TELFORD
    Route ANY PERMITTED
    Type SVR
    Adult £12.00
    Child £3.45


    AND

    From TELFORD
    To WREXHAM GENERAL
    Route ANY PERMITTED
    Type SVR
    Adult £11.60
    Child £3.35


    Total £30.40 Saving £7.60

    However that doesn't allow you to use your chosen trans as you need to stop at Telford Cental.

    So how about this which will allow you to.

    From LEAMINGTON SPA
    To SHREWSBURY
    Route ANY PERMITTED
    Type SVR
    Adult £14.45
    Child £4.15



    AND

    From SHREWSBURY
    To WREXHAM GENERAL
    Route ANY PERMITTED
    Type SVR
    Adult £10.15
    Child £2.95


    Total £31.70 Saving £6.30

    Please note all prices are quoted as Family and Friends Railcard Prices

    A shame that a loophole I knew in that area got closed down, it could have brought the price down below £25 had it still been around.

    Thanks! Are those returns valid for outward travel on the Friday and return travel on the Sunday? The trains on both outward and return stop at Telford according to RTT.

    Thanks again!

    Of course they stop at Telford Cental, I had Telford and Cosford mixed up in my head when thinking about where stuff would stop!

    Yes valid for out Friday back on Sunday.
