Interesting, I wondered how HEx would respond. But it sounds like the
cheapest tickets will only be available a long way in advance.


I do not understand anything of the prices for this train.
25 pounds
22 pounds
12,50 pounds
5,50 pounds
16,50 pounds
7,50 pounds
6 pounds
5,10 pounds
3,10 pounds

"cash fare"?
"peak contactless fare"?
"off-peak fare"? (I think I understand this, but do not know the
off-peak times)

How do you explains this to foreigners arriving at Heathrow?


I don't suppose the HEx touts in Arrivals do much explaining: they just
flog the most expensive tickets they can. The cheaper fares are to attract
locals who would otherwise use Crossrail.
