What are split tickets in TrainPal?

When travelling from station A to station C, you would typically expect to buy a direct ticket. However, it may be significantly cheaper to purchase a ticket from A to B and then another ticket from B to C. This allows you to buy two separate tickets for the same journey and save money.

The same principle applies when buying tickets for more than two stations. Additionally, accepting flexible journeys can be even more cost-effective. For example you can buy two tickets, one from A to B and another from B to C, with a 10-minute wait at station B. This concept is known as split tickets and it can help passengers save a significant amount of money.
