"Essential for touring London"

We bought these cards before we left and loaded with £20. We used the tube extensively on our 5 days in London and loaded it with another £10 and we had about £5 left over which we gave to a friend who had just arrived. The tube has to be the best public transport system and the Oyster card the best thing to use.

Glad I purchased in NZ, before visiting UK, as the queue to buy at Heathrow was very long, and I wanted to get the train from Heathrow to the hotel.

"If you are planning on getting around in London using buses or the tube you will definitely want one of these."

The Oyster Card seriously reduces the cost of travel on buses and tubes in London compared with purchasing a paper ticket. It also reduces the time and hassle spent trying to get a paper ticket so well worth it. The "Visitor" Oyster card also gives you a discount on some attractions and shopping however we never had occasion to use that facility. If you're going to be travelling around London using public transport you will definitely want one of these.
