Further information

If you already have a Travelcard (One Day or Season) or a 60+ Oyster Card or Freedom Pass, then when you book a ticket to a station outside your Travelcard’s area, you only need to pay the excess to or from the boundary station.

At the ticket office, these tickets are issued to or from the zonal boundary, which will show as, for example “Boundary Zone 6” on the ticket.

From self-service ticket machines, you can select a “Boundary Zone” origin or destination and the correct excess fare will be shown. To find Boundary Zone fares, please select ‘Tickets from another Station’ on the Home Screen.

The exceptions are journeys to or from stations north of Northampton, where Boundary Zone fares are not available, but fares from stations within each of the Boundary Zones are – see below.

On the LNR website or app, Boundary Zone tickets are not available, but you can easily buy the same ticket by using a boundary station instead. Simply enter the boundary station that corresponds to the outermost zone on your Travelcard as your origin station instead of London, if you are travellling away from London, If you are travelling towards London, enter the boundary station as your destination.

If you cannot find a Boundary Zone fare on a TVM, you can select a boundary station instead, as per the website guidance above.

The train does not need to stop at the boundary station for the combination of tickets to be valid.
