There are some situations where it can make a difference.
Take Wimbledon to Whitechapel. If you go direct through zone 1 using the District Line it’s 3.70 peak, 3.00 off peak. However if you go Wimbledon – Clapham Jn – West Brompton – Whitechapel and touch the pink reader at Clapham Jn it will be 3.20 peak and 2.80 off peak but you’re still going through Zone 1. If you don’t touch the pink reader at Clapham Jn it will be 3.70/3.00 as before.
