Oyster Card (London) : Reviews

"Perfect in that allows you to easily get around the London ‘undergound’ system"

Value for money: 3/5
Ease of use: 5/5
Suitability: 5/5

Purchase of the Oyster Card from railplus was simple, although it would be beneficial if they sent to a PO Box address; because they don’t, I had to travel into Melbourne CBD to collect. Essentially (for me) a petty concern. What a visitor who purchases an Oyster card most likely doesn’t know is the most efficient way to use it. This has nothing at all to do with railplus, but is a failing of TfL.

I found it really convenient and very good value due to a daily cap on travel costs for inner city zones. Easily add more credit as required and get a refund of unused credit before you leave. The card doesn't expire, good to keep if you'll be returning in future.

"Essential for touring London"

We bought these cards before we left and loaded with £20. We used the tube extensively on our 5 days in London and loaded it with another £10 and we had about £5 left over which we gave to a friend who had just arrived. The tube has to be the best public transport system and the Oyster card the best thing to use.
