"Oyster Cards" Oyster Cards / Travelcards Tip by Acirfa

Oyster Cards / Travelcards, London: 162 reviews and 101 photos

A tip for anyone planning to do a fair amount of travelling on the tube or buses in London. It is well worth filling out an Oyster registration form, paying £3 and topping up your Oyster card with money. This not only give you a good discount on your travel eg. instead of a £1.50 bus journey, it will cost just £00.80.
Well worth it, also in the not too distant future I believe this card will be the only way to travel, it is convenient and cost effective. It is possible to top up over the internet too, so saves any lining up. You only ever have to purchase the card once, it then lasts a lifetime.

Type: Subway/Metro

Review Helpfulness: 4 out of 5 stars
