I take the train from Bracknell to Richmond, and then the tube from Richmond to Hammersmith to Wood Lane, and back 1-2 times per week during peak times.
On the return journey, I arrive at Richmond from Hammersmith and tap out on the yellow card reader with my contactless card, and then walk to the platform to get the train to Bracknell (i.e. I don’t go through any ticket barriers). However, I keep being charged the maximum fare on my return journey from Hammersmith, even though I tap out once I’ve arrived at Richmond. What am I doing wrong?
I was also wondering whether it would be cheaper to buy a SWR train ticket to Feltham, and then use pay-as-you-go travel for Feltham onwards? But would this mean I would have to get off the train at Feltham and then get back on it?
Many thanks in advance
