Is the extension fare always calculated as “the fares for the zones not covered by the Travelcard, on the same scale applicable to the whole through journey” within zone 1-9? Is it the same outside zone 1-9 as well?
For example, my card has National Railcard discount and a 1-2 Travelcard loaded, if I make a journey from Victoria to Gatwick Airport on a Southern service, will I be charged £4.80, which is the fare from Wandsworth Common to Gatwick Airport? If my through journey is Oxford Circus to Gatwick Airport, will the extension fare become £6.10 instead (the same as a Tooting Bec to Gatwick Airport, which is a zone 3-14 mixed mode fare)?
If I make a through journey across zone 1-2, but with both ends outside zone 1-2, will two extension fares (or the through fare if less), or just one be charged? For example, if my journey is Cricklewood to Streatham (zones 3-2-1-2-3), will I be charged £2.15 for the through journey, or just £1.65 as a single extension fare?
