    OUTWARD PORTIONS / RETURN PORTIONS

    Hello!

    Please help me understand phrases "OUTWARD portions" and "RETURN portions" from the timetable:
    1. OUTWARD portions of SAVER tickets are NOT valid on this train.
    2. RETURN portions of SAVER tickets are NOT valid on this train.
    What do the prases above mean?
    I got them from IELTS listening strategies Unit 3, Listening Activity 18.

    Many thanks in advance!

    Re: OUTWARD PORTIONS / RETURN PORTIONS

    Welcome to the forum, evgenia.eva.

    'Saver' tickets are for a round trip, or return journey. They are in two parts (portions).

    The outward part is used from your starting point to your destination, and the return part is used to come back home again.

    They're called 'saver' tickets because they are cheaper than standard tickets, but cannot be used on every train scheduled on the timetable.

    EDIT: As you have also received replies here, I'm closing this thread to save the time of any more of our members. In future, please post in one forum only in the first instance.
