Travelcard on Heathrow Connect

Hi all. On the Heathrow Connect website, there is written that zone 1-6 Travelcards are not valid between Hayes & Harlington and Heathrow Airport. It sounds strange to me, but this statement makes me think that it is possible, with a travelcard zone 1-5, to travel from Paddington to Hayes & Harlington. Did I get it right?

Thank you very much.

Yes, you can travel from Paddington to Hayes & Harlington with a zone 1-5 travelcard. It's only the stretch between H&H and Heathrow Airport on which you cannot use a Travelcard; if you want to travel on to Heathrow you must buy an extension ticket before boarding the Heathrow Connect train.

Yes, the Heathrow Connect extension fare from Hayes and Harlington to Heathrow is £5.60, but from Paddington to Heahrow is £9.50 single. Unless your hoitel is near to Paddington, it is easier and cheaper top travel by Tube and the fare to Zone1, using Oyster card, is £3.

The 140 bus takes 20 minutes from Hayes & Harlington to Heathrow.

As red buses are zoneless you can use your zone 1-5 Travelcard to Heathrow on the 140 even though Heathrow is in zone 6

If I understand correctly I can travel from London Paddington [PAD] to Hayes & Harlington [HAY] in zone 5 with the Heathrow Connect TRAIN using 1-5 travelcard. Right?

Or is it only valid for the tube and bus or also for the train?

Thank you

All Travelcards include National Rail train use in the paid for zones, so you may use a zones 1 - 5 Travelcard on Connect from Paddington to Hayes & Harlington. handfordr's advice about the 140 bus is useful, as that journey is included in all Travelcards, regardless of zones purchased.
