    In the midlands they have a West Midlands Day Ranger which you can go around the Midlands, do MerseyRail have something like that? be heading to the Liverpool area on the 28th October

    Saveaway All Areas ticket valid for a day. Don't make my (almost) mistake and pick up a Saveaway for just one area. :P

    Not sure on prices though. :)

    Covers all the Wirral Lines and Northern Lines termini and extends to Garswood, Hunts Cross and Earlestown( I think?) on their respective lines too.

    Better double checking this on their website.

    It's all rail services within the area, it doesn't matter who operates them - mostly Northern Rail but also on other services to Liverpool South Parkway.

    Only on the Northern and Wirral lines.
    The 'City Line' is marked on the Merseyrail Network map, but is operated by Northern and a Day Saver is not valid on these services.

    So why would anyone go for a Day Saver when a Savaway ticket which is also valid on buses and ferries is only 10p more??

    To save 10p if travelling only on the Northern/Wirral lines? TBH everyone who asks for one should be offered the choice of a Day Ticket or Saveaway.

    Merseyrail offer the day saver for their benefit rather than for the benefit of passengers, as they get more revenue from a day saver (i.e. all of it) than they would from a saveaway (which is a Merseytravel PTE product, not a Merseyrail TOC product).

    The ones at Lime Street Lower Level were quite good last time I was there and offering the Saveaway instead (although I was going to Chester, so if I asked for a ticket to say South Parkway they might suggest the Day Ticket).
