I have Olympic tickets for the 8th and 9th... showjumping and dressage. I'm so excited I'm beside myself!!! However.... To be prepared, and well in advance, I booked travel tickets for two (Flitwick to the London Games) for both days as my daughter and I were originally staying at my sisters in Bedford to make travel easier on the day. At the time, we couldnt get a hotel room in London for love nor money. I have just managed to book a hotel room in London and so no longer require the train tickets I originally booked.... £50 worth!!! I also didnt know when booking that I would receive free travel tickets with the olympic tickets..... (National Rail kept that one quiet didnt they!!!)

I have just called the National Rail Games ticket line to cancel the original train tickets I bought well in advance to be prepared and they are non-refundable. Gutted!!! 50 quid down the pan!!!

The cheap advance tickets are never refundable sadly. It's the risk you take to get cheap fares. Someone else might buy them though :)

ets the free travel card is only for zones 1-9.

I can't believe you're going! You are so lucky! :D Did you have to get them really in advance?

My family and I arrived in England just recently and with all the move and things I didn't look into that when I should have.

Now it's just impossible...:(
