Re: [villahopper] Random & Pointless Things That Really Annoy You or Reply Privately

I'll second the rants about train fares. It's the sheer complexity. It's the huge variety of tickets and the variable restrictions about when you can travel. Or can't travel. Or what route you can take. Or can't take.

On a rail-orientated chatsite I frequent, there's a whole forum devoted to ticketing where people try and help numpties like me find the best bargain fares. Like if you're going from Birmingham to Exeter, you need to split your tickets at Cheltenham. Or Gloucester. Or Little Tidworth or somewhere. Or travel after 09:30, but make sure your train doesn't pass through Bristol if there's an R in the month ......

All because of privatisation and TOCs and the like.

Sorry, I grew up in the days of a Cheap Day Return to Liverpool Lime Street, that'll be 15/6, sir. The modern ticketing system is a farce. Mad

And don't get me started on Oyster ...... Frown
