I need to go to Exeter and Totnes on Friday and will be going by train. So, can I buy a return going to Exeter and going back to Plymouth, get off at Totnes, exist the barrriers and come back again and get on a train to Exeter? I think I read somewhere I could. Can't remember where I read that though!

I'm afraid that I doubt very much whether you can. The best way to be sure is to ask them – and to make sure that you know the name of the person who gives you the answer and if possible record it on your telephone.

 

We have lots of instances of people asking for advice, getting the wrong advice and then later on not being able to identify who they spoke to or to prove what was actually said.

Check out the anytime ticket. I think it may be an option. http://help.thetrainline.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3971/related/1

In case you're not rolling in it like Caro and can't afford an Anytime ticket, the good news is that you are allowed a break of journey even in Peasant Class.

 

http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/times_fares/ticket_types/46590.aspx

 

Did you read the link content?

 

Break of journey is allowed on the outward portion of Off-Peak tickets unless otherwise indicated by a restriction shown against the ticket's validity code and in all cases on the return portion of Off-Peak return tickets.

 

You may start, break and resume, or end your journey at any intermediate station along the route of travel on Off-Peak tickets unless the ticket restriction for the journey you are making does not allow it. If you intend to start, break and resume, or end your journey at any intermediate station, please call 08457 48 49 50 to check if it is available on your specific journey

 

It depends on the exact journey being made!

 

Anytime tickets - Break of journey always allowed

Off Peak Day tickets - Varies

Off Peak tickets - Varies

Super Off Peak - Normally prohibited

 

Bangor - Manchester (Off Peak Return) bans break of journey on the outward leg

Dover - London (Off Peak Return) lets you break your journey on both legs

 

So, it really depends on a lot of factors, so as was suggested, if you don't hold an Anytime/Anytime Day ticket, always check!
