    Anyone know if I can get there any cheaper than £45 return?
    Sept 1st is the day I wish to go.

    Many thanks

    He was asking me about ticket prices earlier and refused to consider anything other than a straight off London - Byfleet ... if you have a YNG it's £30.95 SVR

    On a PRIV card - the fare is £24.25 SOR - but assuming you have unlimited travel on MML, then buy a West Hampstead Thameslink - Byfleet & New Haw SOR... which would be £4.60

    which way you going to go from waterloo?

    Waterloo - Byfleeet and New Haw all stations - Class 455s you know the ones that Ive showed you on my youtube channel.

    OR

    Waterloo - Woking - Byfleet - Might be faster because you go on a 444 or 450 or 159 to woking then change to the middle platform two 455 again :shock:.

    Is Waterloo - Byfleet & New Haw via Woking permitted? I mean, Cholsey - Reading isn't valid via Didcot Parkway even though that could be quicker. They tend not to like 'doubling back'.

    JS

    PS Just checked it on Avantix and the only option is WIMBLEDON, which I guess means no doubling back?

    martyn, I specifically said West Hampstead Thameslink in order to provide you with a PRIV discount on your tube interchange.

    mart do as tom said get a priv westhamtlk/ kentish town to where you want as tube will be included but not if you get the ticket from st panc,

    here is an example,

    afew weeks back me and the missus went to hampton court palace,
    i used my free pass to euston
    but purchassed a priv return ticket from south hamstead to hampton court costing about 4 pound if where it says any permitted there is a + symbol it's valid on the tube saving the oyster fare.

    All tickets are priced to amounts ending in 0 or 5 pence. Check the National Fares Manual for the actual discounted price.

    Tom Guest

    Actual discounted price is nearly always rounded up - it's £3.35
