Fancy going from Watford to Southend today with my wife - and back. What's the best option? Contactless to Upminster followed by ticket or...?

Don't currently have a two together card because we've barely used rail travel but would renew it if significantly useful as presumably we'll be using it again some time soon.

Bonus: Is the pier railway running?

Through fares would cost £66.20

Trainsplit will sell you a combination of tickets for a total of £57.25

If you don't mind tapping out at Upminster (someone will know if there are readers on the platforms) the fare from Watford Jn to Upminster is £7.80 per person per direction, and from Upminster there is a Super Off Peak Return priced at £11.50 per person, which you could of course buy online (or at WFJ station) before you get to Upminster.

Other stations where you could do this include West Ham or Barking

[Or you could do the same thing at Shenfield if you take Greater Anglia from Liverpool Street to Southend Victoria; if you use the TfL single fare finder you can see the price for WFJ to SNF, and BR Fares will tell you there is a "Duo" available for £16.20 which covers both of you from Shenfield, but be warned: bus replacements would make this a very slow journey!]
