If you’re planning to travel to London, there’s one thing you must have — a Visitor Oyster Card. This is the quickest and easiest way to pay for travel on public transport in London. Simply recharge your card and you can pay for journeys on bus, Tube, tram, DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail, River Bus and most National Rail services in London!
There are quite a few reasons why you should get a Visitor Oyster Card, but the single most important fact is that you will save time and money: You can have a Visitor Oyster card delivered to you at home and you don’t have to queue up at the station when you arrive in London. Moreover, the fares are cheaper than buying a paper single ticket or Day Travelcard. You can travel as much as you like on a single day and the amount you pay for your travel is limited (or capped). And you can even get special offers and discounts at restaurants, shops, galleries, and entertainment venues.
London is a beautiful city and there are plenty of places to see. But travelling around can put a hole in your pocket. Or if you don’t have that much time to spend in the city, you don’t want to waste it standing in line to buy tickets! That is what makes the Visitor Oyster Card a must-have.
You can easily top-up your Visitor Oyster card if you run out of credit. You can do this at the Tube, DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail and most National Rail stations. Also, there are over 4,000 local shops in London called Oyster Ticket Stops. A Visitor Oyster card costs £5 (plus postage) and you can choose how much credit to add to your card. And don’t worry — the credit on your card never expires. You can use it the next time you visit London, or you can pass it on to a friend or relative.
The bottom line is: The Visitor Oyster Card is a smartcard for the smart traveller in London and you will not regret taking a few minutes to buy yours.
