So I always try and buy the cheapest, off peak ticket – i.e super-off-peak.
Sitting here at my desk on a long Thursday, I really want to get that earlier train which is "normal" off peak – but alas, I bought a super off peak which means I need to hold off for another hour.
The difference between the tickets is only £7 – a price I am willing to pay to get into my lovely bed on the other side of the county and start my weekend. So the question is:
Would I be able to get that slightly earlier train and pay the difference?
Or would I have to buy a new ticket (obviously I'm aware I could refund the old one, but that would make the upgrade a total of £17 more after you take the admin fee).
- Padding – Cheltenham Spa
- Super off peak single – valid only changing at or passing through Stroud (but I often get the return version)
- Mobile ticket – bought via TheTrainLine
- Usually a GWR train
