OYSTER CARD vs TRAVEL CARDS
An Oyster Card is the cheapest way to pay for a single journey on the London transport network, including the bus, Tube, tram, DLR, London Overground and National Rail. The card itself takes the form of a plastic smartcard, instead of a paper ticket.
To ensure you pay the correct fare, you must always touch in on the yellow card reader at the start of your journey and touch out at the end. If you don’t, the maximum Oyster fare will be charged.
Alternatively, you may wish to purchase a Travelcard. Travelcards can be used on London’s buses, Underground, National Rail, DLR and tram and are available for daily travel. You can purchase a Travelcard in advance of your trip to London via www.londontravelpass.com. You can also use a contactless payment card to travel on Tube, tram, DLR, London Overground and most National Rail services in London, as well as on buses. You can purchase an Oyster Card in advance of your trip to London via www.tfl.gov.uk/oyster.
