    Yep. What routes are you looking at, I seem to only be able to get them on Basingstoke to London, and have tried a lot of routes now...

    Doesn't appear to be any return fares from Exeter, Pinhoe, Southampton, Weymouth, Bournemouth, or Portsmouth.

    Afternoon peak are also blocked out despite the terms only saying morning peak is blocked. How is it SWR are even incapable of advertising an offer correctly!

    Oh a promotion return fare! I didn't know that is what was meant.
    Well, two singles still make a return right?

    Not really as those are advance singles valid only on the trains selected, compared to the promotional return fares which are only restricted in time.

    You mean they are flexible tickets that can be used on any train on a specific day?

    The £12 promotional day returns are valid on any SWR service after 09:59 during the week (and at all times at weekends). The one way tickets you selected are advances valid on that booked train only

    Skyscanner now seemed to have removed the facility to buy rail tickets from their app.

    Pretty clear that the times of January seat sales are over. Nothing from any of the companies that used to do them. Orders from DafT?

    I'm sure GWR had a "January Sale" that was bookable in December last year as I remember booking a 1st Class jaunt to London in the New Year. (2017/18)

    Terrible thing old age , I looked back at my GWR Account and the the journeys were actually in February 2018 , perhaps the Sale did start in January as bspahh alluded to above.

    Had an email from GWR about their January sale. Includes 2000 bonus Nectar points (made two bookings and it is 2000 points with each it seems)).
