Default Hemel Hempstead to Old Street

Hey, so I need to go from Hemel Hempstead to Old Street station tomorrow morning. I have a job interview for my apprenticeship. I need a day travel ticket and I am confused about the zones etc.

I will be going in the morning, so peak times, and leaving my interview at around 5ish. I do not have a travel card or anything, and probably can't pass as a child (I'm 16 and 6Foot 2inch)

Thanks for any help.

Hi,

It's probably best you buy a One Day Travelcard from Hemel, it will cover everything you need to do.

If I'm not mistaken, there doesn't seem to be a standard class out-boundary Anytime Day Travelcard available from Hemel Hempstead. An alternative would be to buy an anytime day return to Boundary Zone 6 priced at 10.10 together with an in-boundary Anytime Day Travelcard for 15.80 - total cost 25.90.

However an Anytime Day Travelcard from Berkhamsted is valid to start and finish short at Hemel Hempstead, and is slightly cheaper at 24.80.

If the OP could provide some more details on the exact time of the morning journey into London and the destination, somebody might be able to offer a better value combination.

Edit: This is wrong - the out-boundary Anytime Day Travelcard is available at 23.70 - see below

The Manual NFM 12 has:

HEMEL HEMPSTEAD - LONDON ZONES 1-6 route ANY PERMITTED Anytime Day Travelcard (ADT) 23.70.

John is right of course - I was getting confused. Sorry about that.
