A walk-up single ticket from Aberdeen to Cork costs 48.50, less than a walk-up single from Heuston to Cork (66). Routing is via Holyhead-Dublin Irish Ferries, and the journey can be completed same-day. Crazy, eh?

What is the cost of a walk up single to Aberdeen from Cork? Could this be used to get cheaper single fares?

I'll try asking in Kent station when I'm there next weekend. My prediction is "wha?"

Thomas Ralph 24-05-2010 10:21

Oh, and if you want cheaper single fares within Ireland, online booking is probably going to remain cheaper :)

To be honest, I've only ever bought a walk up single for a journey as long as Cork-Dublin once in my life. That was earlier this year when Cork Airport got closed by snow and I had to get up to Dublin for an alternate flight. Otherwise whenever I'd needed a single and been prepared, I used either an online ticket or a credit union ticket.

The trick is to go via Holyhead, via Stranraer is 70.

Cork to the Dublin ferryports should be a 20 add-on to a rail and sail price. So Aberdeen would be 20+40 = 60. If you only went to Bangor (in Wales) it would be 20+35 = 55.

It's the same here:

London - Holyhead - Dublin is 31.50 single, irrespective of time of travel.
London - Holyhead, on an anytime single is 127.00.

Travelling short is allowed in the UK, though.
