If you buy a discounted ticket there are no refunds and no date changes. You're really screwed if you can't go. So I was wondering if you can sell it to someone else (of the same sex I would imagine!). They're supposed to check ID on the train but I wonder how diligent they are in doing that? The advantage for the buyer is they could buy a ticket at the last minute (which is probably best for the seller if they have a last minute change in their life). If you wait until the last minute Via Rail charges full price, just like the airlines. So this is good for both seller and buyer.
