“No charge is made when the only touch is within the zones covered by your travelcard.”
So With a 1-6 Travelcard, You Could Tap In Within Zone1 And Travel To Somewhere Like watford Or Reading, Not Covered By Normal Travelcards And Not Pay Anything?,.. Interesting, (I Presume It Would In Reverse Tho?)
It May Be Cheaper To Buy A Paper Ticket To / From Luton Or Luton Airport PKWY (If You Do So You Can Take A Child For Just £2.00 For A 1 Day Travelcard( Only On Thameslink, It Wouldnt Be Accepted On EMR)) And Then Either Pay For The Shuttle Bus Seperatley, (Mike Has Detailed The Fares Above) Or Purchase A Plusbus Ticket (Which Isnt Valid On The Shuttle Bus) But Is Accepted For Unlited Travel On The Multitude Of Buses That Connect The Airport To Parkway Station Or The Main Station In Town, So If You Decided To Make More Than One Trip On The Bus, This Would Be Do-Able
Yes, You Are Able To With Apple Pay If The Device Is Out Of Power
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hkhGGUZB7W0) I Presume It Would Work In The Same Way With Your Banking Card Details On TFL.
See Here, You Can See It Says “Exit” When I Tap Off, I Try To Tap In And Out Again But It Only Said Exit Once, After It Said “Enter” Each Time Until I Went To Another Station Tapped Out & In There. It Only Says Exit The First Time You Touch. On My History Via The GTR Website It Shows An Entry At Canada Water And Then The 2 Touch Ins
No, The Key Smartcard Has Its Own History With Data Fed Back To Them By TFL, It’s Not That Acurate, Only Shows About 50% Of What You Actually Did And Isnt In Order, But Its Something IG, Touching With These Pink Validators Will Display “Enter” Or “Exit” On The Screen And On The History It Shows As The Start / End Point For A Jounrey
Sadly TFL Refuse To Give Out ITSO Smartcard History, Even Tho They Have A Record Of It.
Below Is An Example Of What It Looks like
Yes, A Travelcard ( Lets Say, “Brighton” To London Z 1 – 6 ) On A Southern And Thameslink Key Smartcard.
I Dont Have The Journey History To Hand Right Now As Southern And Thameslink Clear It After 8 Weeks And It Was Quite Some Time Ago, But If I Have Some Free Time In The Area Ill Try And Replicate It To Show You When I Have A Free Day Over The Summmer.
“The official line is that you can’t start or end a journey using one.”
Actually This Isnt True, Apart From The Afore Mentioned Trip Start,Using A National Rail Smartcard With A Travel Card Loaded Onto It Will Start And End Your Journey.
For Example If I Change At Canda Water My Trip Will Show As Whereever I Started > Canada Water Unstarted Journey > Wherever I Finnished.
