FAQ connected to this ticket type

  1. 1. How do I add a London Travelcard to a daily ticket products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    Travelcards allow you to travel to London and enjoy unlimited travel throughout London on National Rail, London Underground, Docklands Light Railway, Tramlink and London Bus services within London Zones 1-6.

    The Travelcard allows you to reach your final c2c destination within London, and then travel unlimited throughout London – using any of those services listed above.

    To add a Travelcard to a daily ticket set your destination station to ‘London Zones 1-6’. The c2c journey planner will return an Anytime Day Return. To add the Travelcard, click ‘other fares’ which will then give you the option to select the Travelcard.

  2. 2. What is a London Terminal? products-faq-angle-arrow.svg products-faq-angle-arrow-purple.svg

    London Terminals are a group of mainline rail stations in central London. Journeys into London via rail usually end at a London Terminal stations.

    For customers travelling into London on the c2c route, a London Terminal is both London Fenchurch Street or London Liverpool Street. If your ticket reads ‘London Terminals’, you can alight at either of those two London Terminal stations. However, you cannot use that ticket to travel into or throughout London beyond that London Terminal station using London Underground, Docklands Light Railway, Tramlink and London Bus services.

    If you want to travel beyond the London Terminal station into London, make sure your ticket includes a Travelcard, or is valid to London Zones.
