I have reviewed the TA forum links and the travel card website but am a bit unclear about a couple of things.
I am arriving into LHR early on a Friday morning and am planning to go to London to see some musuems shops before heading to St. Albans to stay with family (they are elderly and don't get out too much). I wanted to buy the off-peak 1 day travel card but I do not fully understand:
(1) what times am I not allowed to travel - this is the website I read and it says 0430 to 0929 which means AM hours only? Are there no restrictions on evening hours? (www.londontoolkit.com/briefing/travelcard.htm)
(2) if I buy a Zones 1-6 off peak 1 day card which costs 3.20 pounds, can this allow me to travel to the St. Albans station (is this on the same tube network)? The map shows only High Barnett to be the nearest station - which other station can I travel to that is nearest to St. Albans on this card to enable a family member to pick me up from the station?
Sorry this is confusing but I have done a lot of research and am struggling with both the peak hour timings and the eligible trains on this kind of card.
Thanks in advance for your help!
