On the main railway fares section of this forum we always hear about all these tricks and loopholes to getting cheaper railway fares. This includes things such as split ticketing and many other methods. However for buses there does not seem to be much like this. I can only think of one example: Travelling within Brighton on Go Ahead Metrobus (routes numbers 270/271/272/273): Within the Brighton area there are no Return tickets available meaning that you have to purchase a Single ticket (£2.50) or a City Saver Day Ticket (£5.00). However Return tickets are available to and from and within areas outside of Brighton. So passengers travelling within Brighton (for example Brighton to Patcham) can simply purchase a Return from Brighton to Pyecombe for just £4.50 total (saving 50p). This ticket is valid for a Return journey within Brighton (for example Brighton to Patcham) as it is a shorter than Brighton to Pyecombe is. Can anyone think of anything similar to this or any other tricks or loopholes for bus tickets anywhere in the UK? Are there any bus journeys where split ticketing would work and give you cheaper Single and Return fares?
