Oyster card Q's (London)

Jump to last reply

I *think* I understand how this works after researching but still have a couple of questions. Apologizes if these have been answered a dozen times, we are from a suburban tribe in a sprawling western USA city, used to wide freeways, private vehicles and big parking lots, not public transport.

So, arriving at Heathrow and we'll buy the card(s) there with PAYG.

1) Do we need separate cards, one for each person (husband, wife)? I think so but want to be sure ...

2) We'll use the cards mostly for zone 1 and 1-3 Tube travel, but we scored Fat Duck reservations so we'll be taking the train from Paddington to Maidenhead (Bray) and back. Does the Oyster card work with this as well? I was confused by this statement on their web site: "You can use your Oyster card at all National Rail stations within the London Underground zones" ... not sure that Maidenhead qualifies as within the "London Underground zones". Anyone know?

Thanks in advance ...
