Travel agent:Well, there's no restrictions apart from coming back; on Thursday you said, didn't you?

Traveller:No, Friday.

Traveller:Afternoon. I'll probably want to come back on ei­ther the 19.00 or the 19.40 from London.

Travell agent:The19.40's OK.

Traveller:But not 19.00?

Travel agent: No.

Traveller:Would I have to pay extra on that one?

Travel agent:If you came back on the 19.00, they'd surcharge you up to the normal fare, which would be approx­imately ... about 4 pounds extra to pay.
