I'm hoping to travel from Holmes Chapel to Manchester Airport (break) then onto Piccadilly, before returning later the same day.

I'm assuming that my ticket will be valid via the airport and to break the journey there on the outbound leg? There's no break on the return.

That'll be absolutely fine-but would the GM Wayfarer be any good to you for 90p more?

Confirm this is fine. All Anytime and Anytime Day tickets of whatever type permit Break of Journey provided you remain within the ticket's validity, i.e. one day (until 04-whatever-it-is) on an Anytime Day ticket.

Thanks both. Nice to have my thoughts confirmed.

Wayfarer is a good idea. Unfortunately I'm travelling before 09h30.

Not all ;), but in this case yes (and in this case a Cheap-day return also permits break of journey)

No longer here
If that is an Anytime Return ticket as it appears to be, that restriction is not permitted, so can presumably be ignored.

Suspect that one is a bodge job trying to say "this ticket should be sold with an immediate onward ferry connection", or similar.

I agree that it's unenforceable.

I agree with previous posters; Anytime Returns always allow break of journey and nothing can trump that.

There may still exist Off Peak Returns with BoJ barred on the *return* in error (corrected) - this is similarly not permitted and as such cannot be enforced.

If they want to enforce that condition on the outward (only) they need to change it to an Off Peak Return instead :)
