Travelcard

What is a Travelcard?

Travelcards are paper tickets you can buy for different time periods and travel zones. With a Travelcard, you can travel as much as you like, as often as you like on bus, Tube, tram, DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail and most National Rail services in London in the zones you have paid for. 

You can get adult and child-rate Travelcards - photo ID is not required. They are issued as paper tickets from the Visitor Shop.

You can buy these Travelcards from the Visitor shop:

Anytime Day Travelcard - these can be used for the whole day (using the date printed on the ticket) and for any journey starting before 04:30 the following day

Off Peak Day Travelcard - these can be used from 09:30 Monday to Friday, anytime on weekends and public holidays (using the date printed on the ticket) and for journeys starting before 04:30 the following day.

7 Day Travelcard - these can be used from the start date (printed on the ticket) and for any journey starting before 04:30 the day after the expiry date.

Group Day Travelcard - these can be used to travel as much as you like from 09:30 Monday to Friday and anytime on weekends and public holidays (using the date printed on the ticket), as part of a group of 10 people or more travelling together at all times. Find out more.

If the Travelcard you need is not available, you can buy a Travelcard when you get to London.

If you buy a 7 Day Travelcard from a Tube station, Oyster Ticket Stop or London Travel Information Centre when you get to London, it will be issued to you on an Oyster Card. (A £5 deposit is payable when you get an Oyster card).
