    I have an Oyster Annual Travelcard covering Zones 1 - 4 with Network Gold Card. I've tried the sites for Chiltern Railways, Southeastern Railways, National Rail and Trainline (I suspect they all use the same booking database?) but I can't see how to book a ticket online from Boundary Zone 4 to High Wycombe (I'll be travelling from Marylebone). They do allow you to apply the Network Gold Card discount, but don't seem to allow for the "MYB-BZ4 credit". Presume I'll need to buy the ticket at the booking office at MYB?

    You cannot buy tickets from boundary zones online. If you want to buy online you'll find a ticket from Sudbury Hill to High Wycombe is the same price.

    Thanks.
    If I buy a ticket from Sudbury Hill and use it in conjunction with my TC to travel from MYB, would this present any problem - particularly as the train I'm getting doesn't stop at Sudbury Hill (or is this irrelevant)?

    This is covered by condition 19(c) - one of the tickets (the annual travelcard) is a season ticket and the other (the Sudbury Hill to High Wycombe) is not, so your train needs to pass through Sudbury Hill but doesn't need to stop there.

    Sudbury Hill Harrow appears to be closed on Saturday and Sunday, which is when I'm travelling, so it won't let me buy the ticket online. As I understand it I can't specify a prior date as I would have to use it (an Anytime Day Single) on that day. I also need a ticket to come back on Sunday.

    So I'll get a weekend return ticket from BZ4 at the ticket office on the day.

    Thanks for your help.

    Chiltern only price Day Returns from "Boundary Zone" locations, so you'll need to purchase a pair of Singles. The Ticket Office will be able to issue them both at the same time.
