Trip Report London Travelcard: 2 For 1 Savings (The Real Experience)

Jump to last reply

I'd read all the information in advance.

If I wanted the 2 for 1 deals, I would have to buy a travelcard, not an oyster from a London railway station.

Before coming to London I had printed out vouchers for the 2 for 1 attractions I wanted to visit.

Arrived May 14 at Euston Station. First question, where do I buy the travelcards? I first headed for the ticket windows. Before I could get to the window, a Rail Employee asked what I wanted at the ticket window. I said I wanted to buy a 7 day travelcard, not an oyster. I wanted to use the 2 for 1 saving vouchers. The rail employee said that I was in the wrong place. She pointed to a kiosk in the center of the station labeled London Transport. She said that's where I buy the travelcards.

I waited on a line at the kiosk. When my turn, I asked for the 7 day travel card that I could use with the 2 for 1 savings vouchers. I wanted the first day of the card to be May 15, the next day. The lady at the kiosk asked for the pounds required. Then she handed me what looked like an oyster card. No, I said. Isn't this an oyster? I want a travel card for the 2 for 1 vouchers. The lady informed that this is what we have here. That's what I had asked for.

What to do? I left. With my oyster, but without the required travelcard.

I have no idea how to buy the travelcard everyone talked about.

But there is good news to this story. When I arrived at the 2 for 1 attractions, I handed them the voucher. In every case, but one, the voucher was accepted without question. No one asked to see my travelcard for documentation. This was true even at the very expensive Tower of London. The one exception was a London Walks tour guide. She requested that I show her my actual travelcard. Since I did not have one, I showed her my rail ticket to Euston Station instead. She bought it. So, I got my discounts, even without the travelcard anyway.
