London Travelcards

Jump to last reply

I thought I'd worked out what I wanted to do about transport in London. That is, buy a 7 day paper travel card from a rail station (not a tube station) and take advantage of the 2for1 offers. I think that the plastic Oyster cards cannot be used to get the 2for1 offers. As far as I know it's the same price for the paper and plastic travel cards.

However, after reading another post I got confused and went to the tfl site. On the FAQs it says
'Where can I purchase a Travelcard?
You can purchase many different types of Travelcards on our online shop for either 1 day of travel or for 7 days. A 7 Day paper Travelcard can only be purchased online. If you buy a 7 Day Travelcard in London, it will be loaded onto an Oyster card.'

I've also been told that tfl won't mail to Australia, although it does list Australia as delivery point (takes 16 days).

So does that mean I can't get the 2for1 offers? I wouldn't bother about this stuff but I know London will be expensive and was hoping to save some money on the offers.

I admit I'm confused - why is it so complicated?! Can someone please clarify for me? It would be much appreciated.
