I’m interested to know what the correct procedure should be in this scenario. Let’s say a passenger taps in at London Victoria either using an Oyster card or bank card and they are bound for Maidstone. Clearly after Swanley, there are no Oyster validators and therefore tapping out at Maidstone is impossible. Additionally an on train announcement is made prior to Swanley regarding the end of the Oyster zone. If approached by an onboard conductor after Swanley, should the passenger be sold a ticket from Victoria to Maidstone, or from Swanley to Maidstone? And what is the impact to the passenger cost wise from the initial card tap in?
