London Oyster Travel Card

London Oyster Travel Card

Oyster cards are used in London to get around as a cheaper means then buying a single travel card. It is a permanent re-usable electronic pass which can be frequently topped up with cash at any ticket machine to pay travel fares. Once the money you have put onto your card is finished, you again top up – this is called pay as you go. Oyster cards do not have your name printed on them or your photo ID and therefore can be shared with another person if you are not traveling. If you are travelling together, you will need 2 separate cards.

Oyster cards will also be capped once you use a certain amount of money.
