Definition of day return in English:
A reduced-price fare for a journey on public transport out and back in one day.
- The 35-mile journey takes 1hr 45 min, so a day return is more than possible.
- A pensioner using a railcard for a day return from Brighton to Evesham can find himself paying any of 11 different fares, from £24.30 to £92.80, depending on which trains he happens to book.
