Simple Oyster card?

Jump to last reply

Forgive what may seem a redundant post, but I simply cannot make sense of the various threads about Oyster cards! Blame post cancer treatment brain but I am utterly confused....here's the deal. My husband and I will be in London mid October for eight nights. As I am not up to long walks we will be using the tube a lot. We are familiar with the tube, but having read about Oyster cards I am totally befuddled.

Friends have offered us the actual cards which they still have from their trip last year. What do I need to load onto them if we take their cards? Seven day passes, plus extra? Just money?

What is the need for a passport sized photo which appears in some threads?

We think Oyster cards would suit better than a London Pass, as many of the attractions on the London Pass might be beyond me at the moment.

Help me get my thinking clear?
