Possibly the best value ticket option if you like to use a range of transport options. Travelcards are valid on the Tube, National Rail overground trains, trams and the DLR within the appropriate zones, and on buses throughout London.
The cost of a travelcard depends on how many zones you want it to cover. From January 2006 weekly or longer travelcards must cover at least two adjacent zones. Daily travelcards are available in a limited combination of zones:
- 1 day peak - 1-2, 1-3, 1-4, 1-5, 1-6, 2-6
- 1 day off peak - 1-2, 1-4, 1-6, 2-6
For visitors from outside (outside of London or UK) it is also possible to order the Travelcard online. It will be shiped without any shiping costs! (What's the address? can you add it here?)
Daily travelcards are issued on paper and travelcards valid for a week or more are on Oyster Card. Oyster Card
