One thing you need to be careful of is journeys not involving Hertfordshire for certain operators as whilst they use Intalink Explorers as their Network day tickets they will only accept their own for travel not involving Hertfordshire.  Having checked with them about it, Carousel I know for certain accept Intalink Explorers on all normal services but only ones issued by Carousel if you are travelling outside Hertfordshire.  I think Arriva do the same but I have never been 100% on that one.

Thanks.
Arriva do sell and accept all 'Explorers - I remember being copied in on a reminder from a  depot manager for advice to the staff to take all tickets. Had them double check Uno and Richmonds ones before, but only to be expected.

Re Carousel - interesting... they did get rid of their own Network day ticket.
Will need to re-clarify that on the list...
