Here are some very important tips on how to travel around London and buy an oyster card.
Especially if it is your first time visiting London, if you aren’t careful you can end up paying a lot more for your travel so it’s important you pay the right fare. You can use your oyster card or contactless payment card for lots of different types of transport on London TFL services. This includes buses, trains, tubes, Thames Clipper boats, trams and even the Emirates Airline cable cars.
My favourite thing to do is to travel on the old Number 15 routemaster buses. A real icon of London. I’ll show you all the tips and tricks on how to behave like a true Londoner and not to be barged out of the way by the locals when travelling on transport in London.
There are other ways to pay for London Transport including Apple Pay on your iphone or with a contactless credit or debit card. But I think it’s easiest to get an oyster card when you first arrive. Try to avoid buying paper tickets because they cost more!! And the buses don’t accept money so you must have an oyster or credit card or apple pay.

    I went and prepared for my "Five Guy's" trip on London; I wore "everything in red", my pants, shirt, shoes, socks, wallet, earring, piercings, watch, hat, gloves, handkerchief, underwear, condoms, (and when I got my whatever "all day pass", I put a red sharpie dot on it), and then – when I got close the restaurant; somebody walked by me wearing some red, and "a little blue dot" on something, "and, that's when I knew – there was no fucking way"; I immediately knew after this trip to "Five Guy's", I would retire, and I knew I had a problem = "I was fucked up"!

    If there is one place in the world to not worry about travel expenses; it would definitely be any transportation in London, probably the entire UK, especially the Underground, and bus services in England.

    Never knew you can't use cash on the bus. So if I use buses and trains all day to the capped limit how much would that cost?

    I'm late for this but the oyster caps at £4.50 for buses (not sure for tubes or train since I'm a bus person) and each bus ride is £1.50 and tubes and trains vary depending on how far you go.

  • Great Video. Thank you for posting.
