I'm trying to buy a ticket from Didcot to Rosslare for this Friday, but so far without success. Loco2.com offers a SailRail standby ticket, but when I click 'add to basket' it says 'Sorry, we weren't able to confirm your booking.' Raileasy says 'no fares found' if I search for departure at 07.00; if I search at 08.00 it offers me a ticket for Friday night's boat. Virgin Trains shows tickets only for the night boat; Transport for Wales and Great Western don't offer Rosslare as a destination; and the Trainline a) only shows the night boat and b) says 'not available to buy' for that. If I search for Dublin instead, loco2.com doesn't find any tickets to either Dublin Ferryport or Dublin Port (Stena), and neither does Raileasy. Virgin does offer both Dublin routes (or indeed via Dublin to Rathdrum which is my actual destination), and lets me get at least partway through the booking process (I haven't tried completing the purchase as I'm not certain that I'll have to go that way). Has anyone else encountered a problem like this? Does anyone know what the problem is likely to be, and whether I'm likely to be able to buy a ticket from a station or whether there is something preventing such tickets being sold at all? A test booking to Rosslare for Thursday, or for later in the month, does work, so maybe it's just that the allocation of SailRail places on the boat has sold out for Friday, but my impression and experience was that that was very unusual (and it wouldn't explain why some sites offer Dublin tickets and some don't); has anyone else encountered it?
