    Is it permitted by the T&Cs? No, it's only permitted for Anytime and Off Peak.

    Will it work? Yes, I imagine so.

    I've done it on West Midlands Day rangers several times, never knew you weren't allowed to!

    The last time I did it, the response from the passenger sat in my seat was 'F*ck off' mind!:D

    The implication of the wording (to me) is that it isn't allowed for Advances, though why you'd want to I have no idea, and that they forgot about other ticket types. I don't see how it could be enforced, other than refusing you help kicking someone out of the seat if the ticket was of the wrong type.

    It will be fine. Even if it says its for Off Peaks and Anytimes, there is no way of enforcing it.

    The TM should be willing to help if you have any problems taking your seat.
