New(?) Information/Question about Travelcard London (Vouchers?)

Jump to last reply

As you all know, I have been learning about the Travelcard and the two-for-one deal. Everyone seems to agree that you can only buy the paper travelcard that is useful for the 2-for-1 in person in the UK.

However, I was looking for information about hours for railway station ticket offices, and found this site:

http://www.london-travelcards.com/shop/voucher_list.asp?Id=1

It apparently allows you to buy a "voucher" for the PAPER travel card?

This is what it says:

"The London Travelcard Voucher allows you to exchange whenever you like with the ticket dated from that moment (or up to 10 days ahead if you request). Therefore if you're delayed or your plans change, there is no problem! Simply hand over your Voucher(s) at any National Rail station in London (see complete list on this site) and don't forget to ask for your 2for1 discount booklet(s). Then you will be entitled to the vast range of discounts available at Attractions, Theatres and Restaurants."

Does anyone know about this?

If I understand it correctly, we could buy the vouchers online; they would be sent to us in the USA, and they would be redeemable when we got there.

(I checked and the "mailing" information includes different countries including USA--so it seems it is not designed only for UK residents.)

This is how it appears on the check-out:

LON-TC7D-PK2Z-AD-V
London Travelcard Voucher, zones 1-2 - 7 Days - Adult £ 30.40

I don't know if there is a delivery charge. (I didn't get that far.)

There also seems to be an option for buying the tickets and having them mailed to you. I don't know how they handle the passport picture in either case.

What do the "experts" on this forum make of this? Is this something new? Is the site leaving out something or am I missing something obvious?

Thanks!
