"Oyster Cards" Greater London Transportation Tip by stevin
Greater London Transportation: 29 reviews and 23 photos
They have a new type of travel card in London called the Oyster Card. It's one of those tap and go cards which are pretty cool and efficient. Unfortunately, they have 2 levels. One is a pay and go feature which is helpful if your only there for a few days, but it isn't available for use on all the lines as a weekly card. It WILL however be good if you're only traveling on the major tube lines within say zones 1-2.
If you're staying at least 5 days, get the weekly version. It'll pay for itself. If your there even longer, get a monthly.
You need to fill out a form, available at most tube stations. and pay 3 pounds, but then you just top it up each time you go.
You can alternatively, still get a weekly (non-Oyster) card, which is free.
