2946595.jpgTfL’s (Transport for London) off-peak fares mean your half-term travel costs next to nothing. Off-peak applies on weekdays between 9.30am and 4pm, plus all day at weekends and on bank holidays. Single adult pay-as-you-go off-peak fares for journeys made in Zones 2-6 on the tube, DLR and most Overground and TfL Rail services are £1.50.
With the Hopper fare, you can take unlimited bus or tram journeys within one hour for £1.50. Children under five travel free. With a Zip Oyster photocard, five to ten-year-olds can travel free on all TfL services, while 11 to 15-year-olds can travel free on buses and trams and travel at half the adult rate on all other TfL services.

Say someone is struggling financially and the only way they can visit their ill mother is via this route. Please use your brain before posting. Have a good day.

Isn't this the standard off peak rate for zones 2-6?

Yes.. Its off peak after 7pm.

On Tube, DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail and National Rail services in London:

Peak fares apply Monday to Friday (not on public holidays) between 06:30 and 09:30, and between 16:00 and 19:00

Off-peak fares apply at all other times, and if you travel from a station outside Zone 1 to a station in Zone 1 between 16:00 and 19:00 Monday to Friday
This is great!

yes this isn't a deal
If you're willing to take a circuitous route, you can cross London for £1.50 as long as you don't pass through zone 1

Yeah even West Drayton to Stratford which for £1.50 is a tremendous return. Leaves you covering entire London from W to E not via zone 1.

If some one is struggling and they need to visit a sick relative surely time is of the upmost importance?
I'd beg, borrow or steal to get the money needed to visit a sick relative.

This presumably works if you enter the tube and leave the tube via stations in zones 2-6? So crossing through zone 1 is okay? (Can't understand how they would enforce no travel through zone 1)

Has to be valid for the whole journey.

I don't know if anyone here does that, probably not. If you're interested take a look here
Some journeys through zone 1 are charged at £1.50

Obviously it adds time to your journey, in the video it added around an hour which is a lot for a saving of £1.50 (although I have seen posts for 10p of a loaf of tiger bread here so the bar is pretty low). However there are other journeys that avoid zone 1 and are only slightly longer
Wow zones 2-6! All the action is in zone 1

Seems you too could get a few 100's degree heat by posting the normal off-peak price for a zone 1 fare as a 'deal'. Perhaps I will also put the normal prices for boris bike and see if that sizzles the site to bits
I miss the old days where your journey was calculated between entry and exit zones rather than if you had gone through zone 1.

Sometimes travel Tooting (Zone 3) to Heathrow (Zone 6) via the non-zone 1 route which is a bargain for £1.50. Takes about 20 minutes longer than the zone 1 route though.
Obviously designed for the time rich, cash poor, not vice versa
I'm a bit confused.

Zone 2 Denmark Hill to Zone 6 Orpington is £2.90 tonight, off-peak. This is all via Oyster card. With a railcard, I can get it to£1.90


Edit: This is a Child's fare price only in the OP. I don't feel that's obvious.

Edit 2: OP link clearly states adult fare is £1.50. My zone 6 station must be excluded as it's not purely TFL.

Orpington is National Rail station so different single fares apply to TfL zone. However if you buy a travelcard covering your zones you pay the same as a small element is built in Travelcard fares to pay to National Rail Operating Companies. Sadly our mayor removed Z2-6 travelcard which was really value for money for local travel.

£1.50 Single fare applies to Zone 2 to 6 within TFL Services. National Rail station fares might vary. Please use the link below to calculate fares: tfl.gov.uk/far…der

How do they know if you had gone through zone 1? What if I got to zone 2 without entering zone 1

You have to touch pink card readers to say you haven't.

So can you simply just go through zone 1 and touch the pink Oyster?

Yes, but there aren't any pink card reader in zone 1. If you go onto the single fare finder and put in two stations, it will tell you the price of the journey, then the price avoiding zone 1 and tell you where to touch the card reader . I can travel from Heathrow to Upminster, 60 miles by road, for £1.50 but it tells me to change at Gunnersbury and Stratrofd and touch the pink card readers there.

I could, if I wanted, travel right through zone 1 as long as I touch those card readers along the way. But it would make the journey longer overall so what's the point in doing that?
