On board an SWR service I overheard a passenger wanting to buy a ticket to travel to Heathrow T3 from Victoria for later. The guy had a contactless card and wanted to use the tube.

10.20 was the fare he paid the guard for a paper ticket. I can only assume it was this:

LONDON TERMINALS - ZONE U1256 LONDN

That has a routing ANY - PERMITTED, but there is also a VIA UNDERGRD/DLR version at 6.00. Notwithstanding the fact that tapping in/out with contactless would be cheaper anyway what extra route(s) could you take on the 10.20 ticket vs the 6.00 one?
