Getting around London is easy, but which travel ticket is best for your visit? The Visitor Oyster card and Travelcard both have advantages, depending on the length of your stay, how much you’ll be travelling around and whether there are any children in your group.
Visitor Oyster cards are plastic smartcards you can use instead of paper tickets. Put on pay as you go credit which you use when you travel. It is the cheapest way to pay for single journeys on bus, Tube, tram, DLR, London Overground, Tfl Rail and most National Rail services in London.
From January 2016 you can also use your Visitor Oyster card to pay for travel on train services to/from Gatwick Airport, including Gatwick Express.
You can travel as often as you like on bus, Tube, tram, DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail and most National Rail services within the London travel fare zones with a Travelcard. They are valid for either one or 7 days and are issued as paper tickets from the Visitor shop.
