Local travel

The cheapest way to travel in London is by using an Oyster card or contactless payment card. You can use these to travel on the Tube, DLR, London Overground and most National Rail services within London, as well as on buses.

If you do not have a contactless payment card, you can buy a Visitor Oyster card before your trip, or when you arrive in London.
