London to Stansted with 6 Zone pass

Hi,

Could anyone tell me how I can get from London to Stansted using a zone 1 to 6 day travel card?

Easiest - get the tube to Tottenham Hale and buy a ticket from there.

A little cheaper - the last stop in zone 6 is Turkey Street but trains to Stansted do not stop there, so it would be a fiddly journey

Cheaper still - use the travelcard to get to Stratford then the coach from there.

Would that be any cheaper than getting Easybus from Baker Street or National Express / Terravision from Victoria.

I think OP is giving themselves a lot of hassle for very little gain.

The question OP should be asking is why do they need a zone 1-6 pass in the first place

Hi

Thanx. Allen - travelcard as we have a London pass with travel. We need to take a late train out as we will be flying early from Stansted the next day and it is not worth spending another night (3 Hours) in a hotel.

I see the easybus option might be the way to go as we will be travelling in December. So if I book early it might be the best option??

<<< as we have a London pass with travel. >>>

Next time don't bother with the travel option - 99.99% of tourists have no need for such a pass.

Virtually all tourism in London is done within zones 1-2 with the exceptions of Kew, Hampton Court & Heathrow Airport

Easybus will be cheapest if you book early - not a lot in it if you book on the day.

Surely the OP should go to either Liverpool Street or Tottenham Hale and purchase a ticket from the boundary of Zone 6 to Stansted. He doesn't actually have to get out at Turkey Street and get back on!
