Is better / cheaper to buy Oyster card or Travelcard in London ?
|I will stay almost 2 weeks in London and would like to ask, if is it cheaper to buy an Oyster card or Travlecard for public transport.|
|If is it better to buy an Oyster card or Travelcard for public transport in London, depends on how often do you travel and where do you travel. Oyster card has a price caps, what means if you travel a lot, you will not be charged more than relevant price cap. In case of Travelcard, you can buy it for a specific range of zones, for 1 day, 7 days, 1 month etc. The price of Travelcard is fixed, so you can travel as often as you like.|
The most of attractions and popular tourist places in London are located in zone 1 or 2.
Travelcard for 7 days in zones 1 and 2, costs £35.10
Oyster card standard daily cap for zones 1 and 2 is £7, but there is also a weekly cap between Monday and Sunday
In general, the Travelcard is good option in London, when you travel many times per day. You should check the public transport travel fares. The best option also may be to use Travelcard during period when you travel a lot and use Oyster card in days you travel rarely.
