Hello
On Sunday two of us need to travel from Penge East to Wembley and then to Gatwick.

We have a Two Together Railcard, along with a Oyster PAYG.

If I try and purchase this:


Out Sunday 28 Feb 2016
London Underground Zone 1-6 425 to Gatwick Airport GTW

Return Sunday 28 Feb 2016
Gatwick Airport GTW to London Underground Zone 1-6 425

the Virgintrains website prices it as £34.20 for two Anytime Day Return

If I enter East Croydon rather than GTW it prices at £16 for two Travelcards


What am I doing wrong? How can I get the ticket issued through to GTW at a cheaper price ?


For example, on Saturday 27 Feb 2016, I have purchased
Out Gatwick Airport GTW to London Underground Zone 1-6
In London Underground Zone 1-6 to Gatwick Airport GTW
Priced at £16 for two Travelcards

Ah yes that is even cheaper, however I've heard of people having problems buying those fares online, so you may have to buy at a ticket office (or ticket machine, if you have a spare hour to wade through all the options and only if it's one of the machines which sells tickets from alternative destinations)
