TravelCards

So sorry to bother you with this, but can anyone tell me why 7-day Travelcards are more expensive for folks outside of England than for the locals? The card I'm interested in runs $42 from BritRail, but is around $38 on Transport for London. Is there a difference in the cards?

Thanks!

I don't think there is as a 7 day Travelcard for zones 1 & 2 if purchased here costs #21.40GBP which currently equates to $38.40. The zone one card is even chaper at #18.50GBP.

I think the Britrail price allows for their markup so should only be considered if buying other Britrail products as part of a package.

Hope that makes sense!

Might be the keyboard settings on your PC. Does it show up correctly as you type, or only on the posted message ?

#$| comes out when I type what you did and the " & @ are the wrong way round but only on tripadvisor. I'm very confused!

Adam,

I think most visitors to this forum (including me) owe you a pint for all your help.
