    Hello,

    I wionde rif someone could offer me some gfuidance. I need to trave lto Peterborough on Saturday to go to cover a match.

    I have to go through London to meet a freind so i know it will be more expensive. I have a Network Card.

    My questions are:

    1) Is the Network Card boundary point Huntingdon not Peterborough?
    2) If so i guess it would be cheaper to buy Kings Cross - Huntingdon, Huntingdon - Peterbrough and return
    3) Have i mssied anything that would save a bit more money.
    4) I already have a ticket for MKC to EUS ( which i got ages ago for next to nothing)

    thanks

    Are you returning, and if so, which day, and do you have a EUS-MKC ticket for the return leg? :)

    Aye, the boundary is still Huntingdon as while NSE trains naturally finished up at Peterborough, it was never part of NSE and the railcard area has still not been extended. Ditto Manningtree-Ipswich.

    KGX-PBO on what I presume to be FCC Only is £24. Whilst KGX-HUN with Network is £15.20 and HUN-PBO without discount is £5.50 for a total of £20.70. Or if you're inclined, you can splurge £29 for Any Permitted

    £43.30 is without a Network Card - yes Cheap Day Return now known as off-peak day reurn.
