Travel Card or Oyster Card?

Jump to last reply

Hi, I will be in London next week and have been trying to figure out which travel card to use (oyster or travel card). We will fly into Heathrow at 8:05AM and will need to get to my hotel on Southwark (which is Zone 1). We will spend most of our time in central London visiting the sites; however, one day we will try to visit Greenwich. On another day I will visit Windsor Castle and from there visit some friends in Reading. We would also like to spend a day in Oxford as well.

So, my question is: would it be a better investment to use a travel card (and if so, which one?) or would it be better for me to purchase an Oyster Card.

I see with the travel cards you can use the 2-for-1 deals... but how exactly does that work? Would I need to print them out here at home? Or can I get them there?

If I do the Oyster Card, would I need to purchase single tickets to Windsor and Reading before I leave home? Or on the day that I travel? And are the off peak hours from 10-6?

Thank you for your expertise... I know there have been a million threads on this subject!
