Default 16-25 Railcard Waterford-Cork

Hi!

I rang Irish Rail to get a price of a railcard return fare from Waterford to Cork (via Limerick Junction) and was quoted 29.70 which I thought was fairly reasonable. I forgot to ask if this was a day return or an open return. On the website for price grids of different routes I can only see a single Railcard return price (not separated into day or open).

Anybody know if railcard return fares are day or open and if the price changes? Thank you!

Both should exist. Let me have a check if I can readily determine the prices.

EDIT: That may be the day return fare. The open return appears to be 34, However, as this is a cross-route journey, we aren't certain how Irish Rail calculate it. http://www.railusers.ie/passenger_in...1=Submit+Query

Exactly what I was looking for.

Obviously this route can't be booked online but it does let me book Waterford-Mallow for some reason and quotes 29.70 also for a return on different days so the 34 does sound right hopefully.

Thank you very much!

All 16-25 returns are open returns

Thanks.

Ticket ended up costing only 23 return for some reason.

Probably the website pricing it up on ticket type 9 when it should have been using 141.

It picked it up as the correct fare code, but wrong distance

Its probably still using Cork - Mallow - Waterford for the distance and not via Limerick Junction
