If you're planning to visit London and will be using public transport then it's likely you'll also want to purchase either an Oyster Card or Travelcard. Both passes save you money over cash fares, but in certain circumstances one can save you considerably more than the other. To complicate matters there is also a Visitor Oyster Card and Contactless Payment option.
So what is the best way to travel in London?
It can all be a bit confusing so let me explain the differences between these tickets.
As if 4 ticket options wasn't already enough to get you scratching your head, it gets worse. You see, there are two types of Travelcard. One is purchased at an Underground (Tube) station and small retailers, the other can only be purchased at National Rail Stations.
