    Default Eurotunnel make me laugh..

    Phoned up last night to book my outgoing Train for Saturday night, as there was a problem on the site and it wouldnt let me do it online..

    A one way ticket on Saturday night was £147!!
    A return ticket going out on Saturday Night at 2042 and returning at 402 Sunday morning was £47!(I will just throw the return in the bin! and do the same on the way back)

    So, let me think, which one do you think i went for!!

    It amazes me how there can be so much of a difference in price for a one way trip over a return!!

    that's bonkers! you'd think the system would know this and reduce the single price??? It would also free up a space for someone else on the way back too.

    They'll probably keep your details on record & next time you travel they'll probably charge you a penalty for the space wasted on the return journey.
    Seems logical doesn't it

    It's the same on the domestic rail booking forms online. They actually warn you that two singles may well be cheaper than a return and advise you to search that as well!

    Have done the same for flights, its called "booking back to back" and is common practise. Think it allows the companies to over book and make even more money.
