I was flying from Southampton at the weekend, and on Friday I tried to purchase an off peak return from Basingstoke to Southampton Airport Parkway on my Network Railcard. The machine did not have returns listed, so I went to the desk and they said SWR don't offer return tickets on this route. So I was only allowed to buy a single, and my railcard basically reduced the £13.80 single fare to £13 as that was the minimum spend. Then yesterday I arrived back at Southampton Airport and the machine straight up offered me a day return to Basingstoke (though I didn't check if open returns were available, as I only needed a single). Can I ask if there is any good reason not to have the returns available? Because to me it seems a bit of a scam on the TOC's side to negate the discount on the railcard on a shortish route.
