    Say I bought a peak Travelcard (zones 1-6) from Aylesbury

    Can I legitimately break my journey at Amersham on the way back ?

    Chiltern say "a break of journey at a LU station on a travelcard is not permitted" but (other than that restriction on a maltese-cross London routing) can't find where it is in the Travelcard/Anytime rules..

    Where do they say that? This is surprising to me, as the only ban on break of journey regarding LU that I am aware of is when you're on a cross-London transfer (as part of a through ticket via London), and even then I'd expect the restriction to apply to LU-only stations rather than LU-operated stations.

    All Travelcards are valid for unlimited journeys within the Zones, and the return 'portion' is always unrestricted. The outward 'portion' of Day tickets should also always be unrestricted.

    Actually yeah just spotted this in NRCOC

    "A ticket which entitles you to travel on the London Underground and/or
    Docklands Light Railway does not entitle you to break and resume your journey at any of
    the stations on these networks unless it is a Season Ticket or a Travelcard."
