London: yet more 2-for-1 and Travelcard questions

Jump to last reply

Oh boy, this certainly seems like a subject that goes on and on...

1) We will take the Gatwick Express in to London. I believe the GE tickets qualify for the Days Out two for one offers. Is that correct?

2) In October, I bought my GE tickets online before departing the US. I am wondering if I should do this again, or if only Gatwick Express tickets bought at the National Rail window at LGW will qualify. If anyone knows, I'd love to hear.

3) Next question: on another forum, I read a post saying that one should not put one's GE ticket used to get to Victoria into the slot to exit the station, but should instead find a station agent to open the barrier. Seems odd but I'm looking for back up here.

4) Next: there are two of us, and we already own one Oyster purchased in October. If I buy just one 7 day Travelcard, will that suffice for using the two-for-one offers, or would we need two? I ask because it just might be easier to buy my Gatwick Express tickets online, and not have to concern myself with someone letting me out of the exit barrier at Victoria and then carrying my GE tickets with me all over London in order to use the 2-for-1 offers.

4) Now, if I were to get a 7 day travelcard from National Rail, and assuming 1 card would be good for the twofers, would I need a photo ID? A special National Rail photo ID?

The intricacies can be daunting, but I do so appreciate any help.
