Can I clarify guys which under what basis of the National Rail Conditions of Carriage your allowed to split tickets if one of them is an advance ticket. For me I use my concessionary travel pass issued by Merseytravel PTE for travel from Formby to either Liverpool Lime Street or Liverpool South Parkway before often joining a long distance train on an Advance ticket. Although I've always been under the impression that if my first train was late and I missed my train that I was booked onto the Advance fare for, they would have to accommodate me on the next train if I was to mix my Advance booked train due to a delay when traveling on my concessionary travel pass (provided I allowed enough time for my connections to make it valid). In the same way if on my return journey, the service I am booked onto on the Advance ticket, if it was to be delayed, they would have provide a taxi back to Formby if I missed the last connection (provided I allowed enough time and the connections were valid). If the above is true is it written down anywhere? I am wondering where these passengers right formally come from? Also, this the following statement from the split ticket guide on Money Saving Expert incorrect: - "There may be a problem if you need to change trains and you're delayed before you split tickets. For example, if you're going from London to Durham via York and delays mean you miss your time-specific train going onto Durham, you may have to pay extra. However, you could also claim compensation for train delays. See our Train Delays guide for more details." http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/travel/cheap-train-tickets They are implying there that if you are using split tickets and you miss a specific booked train on an Advance ticket due to a delay, you are not covered and must pay more for the next service! Surely this is incorrect?
