Dare I ask a Transportation Question?

Jump to last reply

DH and DS and I are looking forward to traveling to London again this summer.

I see on the TFL website that you can order the 7 day paper travel card. It says on the website that if you wait until you go to London to get the travel card it will be loaded on an oyster but if you want the paper travel card to order from home.

However, I remember reading that in order to qualify for two for one discounts you need the paper travel card from a national rail station. Are they still selling those to visitors? If I order from home would it have the railroad logo on it to qualify for two for one discounts?

Last time child went free--under 10. This time it says either get a regular travel card for DS or send in a picture with 10 pounds for processing for the child oyster card to get the child rates. Which makes more sense? The 10 pound processing fee sort of takes away from the child rate savings for a 7 day pass for zone 1-2.

Thanks.
