Here are some very important tips on how to travel around London and buy an oyster card.
Especially if it is your first time visiting London, if you aren’t careful you can end up paying a lot more for your travel so it’s important you pay the right fare. You can use your oyster card or contactless payment card for lots of different types of transport on London TFL services. This includes buses, trains, tubes, Thames Clipper boats, trams and even the Emirates Airline cable cars.
My favourite thing to do is to travel on the old Number 15 routemaster buses. A real icon of London. I’ll show you all the tips and tricks on how to behave like a true Londoner and not to be barged out of the way by the locals when travelling on transport in London.
There are other ways to pay for London Transport including Apple Pay on your iphone or with a contactless credit or debit card. But I think it’s easiest to get an oyster card when you first arrive. Try to avoid buying paper tickets because they cost more!! And the buses don’t accept money so you must have an oyster or credit card or apple pay.
