Oys­ter cards & Trav­el­cards

An Oys­ter card is a pre-paid travel smart card. It’s a cheap way to pay for sin­gle jour­neys by bus, Tube, tram, DLR, London Over­ground and most Na­tional Rail train ser­vices in London.

You can buy a Vis­i­tor Oys­ter card be­fore you leave home for a £3 fee and pre-load it with credit at www.vis­i­tor­shop.tfl.gov.uk. The sys­tem has nine zones. Zone 1 is in cen­tral London.

Vis­i­tors can buy Oys­ter cards and Day Trav­el­cards from sta­tions, Vis­i­tor Cen­tres and any Oys­ter Ticket Shop. UK vis­i­tors can also pay for their travel with a UK-is­sued con­tact­less pay­ment card. See www.tfl.gov.uk/vis­it­in­glon­don.

An Oys­ter card also gives you a 25 per cent dis­count on London’s cable car, the Emi­rates Air Line, and a 10 per cent dis­count on sin­gle jour­neys on most MBNA Thames Clip­pers river buses. For more info, visit www.vis­i­tor­shop.tfl.gov.uk.
