    Hello there,
    Today I'll be going from Catford Bridge to Charing Cross to Embankment and finally touching out at Heathrow airport.

    The current idea is to get the 15:56 to charing cross from catford bridge but with peak time starting at 16:00 this journey will be off-peak correct? But what about the next leg from embankment, because it's an OSI does my journey up to the airport become off-peak as well?

    Advice will be appreciated.

    Pricing is based on when you touch in at your origin, so as long as you don't exceed the OSI allowance, it'll be charged as off-peak.

    Correct
    Using Out of Station Interchanges (OSIs) correctly (being careful not to exceed the maximum interchange time) will ensure it's treated as one journey (Catford Bridge to Heathrow) and therefore remain off peak.
