Rail appointed travel agents do not sell all ticket types, it depends on the Ticket Issuing System they have in place.

You can buy any UK rail ticket (and Irish ticket) at any UK railway station. However, you may not get voucher packs / leaflets etc that come with some rovers (Freedom of Wales springs to mind)

Has someone hacked into Ticketman's account or has he really just made a sensible, helpful and serious post? :grin: ;)

You can buy through Irish tickets. I'll show you in my fare's manual later.

Sometimes it's cheaper to get a ticket to Ireland than to a place like Holyhead. Mad.

Rather like Nick W's ticket from Penzance to Ipswich being cheaper than Penzance to Paddington.

Other times, a combination is cheaper.

Either way, a ticket from A to B where A is where you are going from and B is where you are going to, is usually NOT the cheapest for your journey!!! :tongue5: I think it's designed so that only a select few "in the know" pay the best value fares ;)
