    UEFA EURO 2020

    Scotland weren't even particularly bad today, just some really poor finishing and a freak goal. May as well announce the goal of the tournament now as that won't be beaten.

    323s vs 331s on Northern

    It's about time! There's plenty of platform to the south of the fences that has been abandoned for a while, on both sides and the island.

    Avanti West Coast: Standard Premium

    You learn something new every day! Would that still apply when the delay is known about before purchase too then?

    Avanti West Coast: Standard Premium

    Is Delay Repay payable on upgrades? I've always assumed that it isn't.

    Can SouthEastern ticket offices do seat reservations on other companies trains?

    Any ticket office should be able to issue a reservation for any day train (I don't think they can do sleeper reservations). If there are both day and period returns available then it's helpful to specify whether you're returning on the same day or not, but you don't need to specify exactly what...

    UEFA EURO 2020

    Such a stance would be a tad more respected if it didn't go out of the window every November. When they say "keep politics out of football" they mean "keep politics I don't like out of football".

    UEFA EURO 2020

    Ahhhh, the group of people who like to call everyone 'snowflakes' finding something else to get wound up about for no reason. The irony is hilarious. Taking the knee doesn't appear to be doing much on the racism front but as long as it gets the gammonista riled up I'm all for it.

    So that'll get you from Waverley to Haymarket, what do you plan to use for the rest of the trip? :lol:

    Excessing ticket on board / refunding a partially used ticket possible?

    The excess would be half the difference between a Salisbury-Bristol and a Bournemouth-Bristol return. I doubt a single would would out cheaper but I’m not familiar with the fares structure down there as it’s not really my territory. I’d say if you bought an extra ticket you’d be able to claim...

    Excessing ticket on board / refunding a partially used ticket possible?

    1. You won't be able to claim Delay Repay based on the arrival time at Salisbury if you get an excess to Bournemouth. You can't have your cake and eat it so to speak. I'm fairly sure you should be able to get the excess, and it's possible, but you might struggle. 2. No.

    Caledonian Sleeper

    The sleeper is no more or less 'safe' than any of the day trains.

    How do I get reservations for a journey not considered logical by the booking engines?

    TrainSplit (and TrainsCanBeCheaper) has a very good booking engine that allows you to specify where you want to change and how long you want the connection time to be (I think to a maximum of 99 mins + minimum connection time). If this still doesn't work then a good old ticket office will be...

    McDonalds to ditch their traditional loyalty cards

    Especially tough luck if you were 105 points away from a voucher like me. <( Morrisons More was by far the worst supermarket loyalty scheme anyway. I'd agree with that. In fact, the drop from 6 to 5 stickers needed for a free drink would arguably back that up - they wouldn't make that change if...

    McDonalds to ditch their traditional loyalty cards

    It's not particularly abrupt, it was meant to change at the end of March but they extended it by 3 months. The app loyalty scheme only requires 5 virtual stickers to claim a free drink, rather than the 6 for the cards. I quite like collecting the stickers but things move with the times, I note...

    Travel outside Oyster zones

    They’ll be charged a maximum fare Oyster/contactless wise and treat like any other ticketless passenger if they’re caught by the conductor after Swanley.
