    Hello,

    Quick question about validity. I gather that tickets to London International CIV are valid to Liverpool Street via the tube for connection with a Dutch flyer ticket. However, when I return from Europe I will be returning to Heathrow. Could I use the return portion of a London CIV return to travel on the tube from Heathrow into London and then onward home?

    This is the ticket I am thinking of http://www.brfares.com/#faredetail?orig=PMH&dest=LNE&grpo=0440&rlc=YNG&ldn=1&tkt=EVR

    No. Cross London transfer tickets will work the barriers anywhere in Zone 1, but otherwise the ticket can only be used at stations on the interchange list. Heathrow, unsurprisingly, isn't one of them. http://www.railforums.co.uk/showpost.php?p=1315636

    Ok, might still be cheaper to use this ticket and buy an extra tube ticket on the way back. Thanks

    It should also be noted that tickets to/from London International are only valid in conjunction with a through Rail-Sea-Rail or Eurostar-European Rail booking, and a ticket inspector may well ask for proof of same...

    Sorry, forgot that minor :) detail! A booking office might also want to see the Dutchflyer ticket before issuing, or at least a booking reference.

    Ok, well as I only have a Dutch flyer booking for the outward journey, I may just use a cheap Portsmouth to London Travelcard routed southern only and leave with more time to spare.
