Thanks Janis. In anticipation of a trip to England, I've been reading a lot on these boards and have learned a lot from your posts. If we arrive early enough, maybe we will be able to see one of the sights with the 2 for 1 offer on that day. Thanks again!

The only problem I ran into is trying to replenish the oyster cars online. I entered my credit card billing address as the US and the site won't accept an address outside the UK!

Above stated on November 10 posting:
"And don't hang onto the card thinking you can use it on your next trip to London. If the card is more than a year old, you won't get your deposit back."

I don't see this info on the Oyster website -- can anyone clarify?
My understanding was Oysters never expire and the £3 deposit could be refunded at any time. Thank you.

Unregistered cards will be stopped after a couple of years of non-use but you can reinstate them including the balance by ringing TfL on +44 207 222 1234

this is interesting, alanRow, I didn't know that.

I couldn't find the information on TFL's website either, but when I did some googling, I find the time frame to be 24 months of inactivity. The credit remains on the card, and can be re-activated by visiting a TFL service booth as well as calling.

Anyway, I guess this gives me an excuse to go to London by Nov 2010!
