If you live in London you won't need telling about the Oyster Card, you almost certainly have one. If you don't live in London, but visit on a regular basis or might be planning a holiday taking in the capital, it might not be something you've thought about. I only discovered by accident ...

Small Pearls Perhaps - but worth having

AdvantagesConvenience and cash savings

DisadvantagesNone, so long as you remember it's cash

"...won't need telling about the Oyster Card, you almost certainly have one. If you don't live in London, but visit on a regular basis or might be planning a holiday taking in the capital, it might not be something you've thought about. I only discovered by accident that you don't need to be a local to access the benefits of this nifty little gadget. You can buy one on-line, get it delivered and activated within a couple of days, ready to go. You ..." Read review

A Credit Card Oyster

AdvantagesConvenient, Ease Of Use

DisadvantagesExagerated Prices

"...London is means that the Oyster card is a neccessity for myself and the many thousands of others that also rely on the underground to get to and from work. Oyster cards were launched back in 2003 and there are two main uses for it. The first is that the prices on Oyster cards are cheaper than buying the standard tickets and the second benefit is that it is a lot more convenient and I will explain more about these two benefits during this review. ..."

London (Well, SOME of It) Is Your Oyster

AdvantagesConvenient, cashless travel, discounted rates still quite expensive

DisadvantagesHaving Ken know where I go, not yet universal across all ex-BR stations

"...off from buying a London Oyster card for several reasons, not the least of which is that I thought they were only for season ticket use, and as my need to use London's buses and Underground trains was minimal, say, three of four times a month, this ruled me out, or so I imagined. True, you can use your Oyster card as a season ticket; a friend of mine does, but as I now know it can also be used as a Pay-As-You-Go payment card, with certain advantages ..." Read review

Oyster Card

AdvantagesConvenient

DisadvantagesYou could lose it!

"...gentlemen, say hello to the Oyster card then. For those who don’t live in London or perhaps have never even stepped foot in the capital, the following paragraphs may read like absolute gobbledegook, but trust me, I think I know what I’m talking about and I think it makes sense. The Oyster card is basically a form of electronic ticketing used on public transport – buses, some National Rail trains, trams, underground and the Docklands Light Railway ..." Read review

The World is your Oyster

AdvantagesGreat, handy

DisadvantagesDoesn't always swipe first time

"...and so have found the Oyster Card an invaluable tool to help me in my journey. What exactly is an Oyster Card? An oyster card is basically a credit card sized card ticket which has an amount of preloaded electronic money on it (it can store up to £90 worth of credit) that allows users to travel by swiping the card over electronic readers to gain access to the transport system. The card is valid on the London Underground, buses and the Docklands ..." Read review
