That's a thought worth bearing in mind:T
I guess that's based on you "buying" a return ticket at the start of the outward journey and what this is based on is the starting point of the original journey (ie in Wales).
I'll remember that one. Ta.
No need to buy a return. It's Arriva here, as it is in most of Wales.
Just give your destination as you put your card on the reader.
Before the introduction of automatic readers, I used my Welsh card when visiting DD in Manchester. No good now, of course.
Words, words, they're all we have to go by!.

Some friends and myself were caravanning just outside Hereford last year and made this journey using our bus passes. We couldn't wait to get out of the place once we arrived. We joked that we would have been very willing to pay to leave the place.
There was an aspect of the housing market there that was worrying me a bit (thinking of the future) and that was my main reason for deleting it. I've searched RightMove recently for there and the house prices are looking even lower to me than they did a couple of years back. Don't know if that's accurate or no - as I didn't keep records of what houses I might potentially be interested in were costing.
I like the Gretna shopping outlet - was there when we stayed overnight in Gretna on our way further north. It seems a bit more 'mobility-friendly' for those of us with walking problems. Others I've tried to visit are huuuge and long distances from car parking.
I never use buses and therefore don't have a bus pass.
