There are 45 stations on the border of two zones: Acton Town, Chalfont & Latimer, Chesham, Colindale, Cockfosters, Epping, Finsbury Park, Hainault, Hammersmith (subway), Harold Wood, Heathrow Terminal 4 & Terminals 1 2 3 (you can change between all these trains at Heathrow Central), High Barnet & Oakleigh Park, Ickenham & South Harrow, Iver, Kensington (Olympia), Kentish Town West, Kew Gardens, North Wembley, Northfields, Pinner & Hatch End, Richmond (not Richmond-upon-Thames), Ruislip Manor, South Woodford (subway),.

If you want to buy two tickets for a longer journey, but use the ticket at separate places, it might work out cheaper to buy two singles. These can be from the same or different zones. So if you were travelling from Croydon to Streatham (zone 3) and then to Hither Green (zone 4), you could buy two Zone 3 single tickets or one Zone 4 single with a Zone 3 section. The Zone 3-4 single is more expensive, but could be cheaper when there are two stages to your journey.

On your journey from your starting zone to your destination, you will be crossing zone borders and traveling through stations in two zones. If you are traveling from zone 2 to zone 1, for example, you'll pass through a station that's in both zones (zone 2 North Acton). There are two types of zone 1 stations: narrow zone 1 (includes the Circle, District, Metropolitan and City & South London Rapid Transit Company's sub-surface lines) and wide zone 1 (includes DLR).

You can tell whether a station is in multiple zones by the colour of the box around its name. This colour tells you in which zone the station lies. There are two cases when you may need to travel outside your normal zones on a weekly or monthly Travelcard.

How To Save Money On Travel To Central London From Zones 2-6

I’ve been living in Stoke Newington, North London for the past few weeks. It’s a good area, but the one downside is that it’s not right on the tube map (Zone 2). This means I’ve had to fork out extra cash for Zones 1 and 2 on top of my Zones 3-6 Travelcard. However, there are other ways to get around central London that are totally free – if you don't mind walking. I know you may be thinking “But Nick, I’m not planning on using the buses, but the Tube.

” – well actually you can catch the bus from London Bridge to Holborn stations and jump onto the Central Line for free ( an interesting hack I will blog about in the future ). The Travelcard is good for unlimited use of this route. Once upon a time, someone told me you could travel around London on the buses for free if you were willing to buy a Travelcard. "No", I said, "that's crazy talk".

Then I went and checked the prices of some of the zones that I needed to cover, and realised that it was indeed true. Travel to central London from any of the zones listed above is not cheap even when you have a Travelcard.

There are many different options when it comes to travelling to central London from the outskirts of zones 2-6.

Weekly Or Monthly Travelcards

You live in zone 1 and want to visit a friend who lives in zone 3. The fare for this journey is £4. 70. However, a Travelcard for zones 1-2 costs £7. 00, or £5. 10 if you buy it as a weekly travelcard, and £3. 40 if you buy it as a monthly travelcard. Instead of paying a full-price single journey ticket every time you visit your friend — as well as paying for an additional weekly or monthly Travelcard — you can use a multi-journey ticket for all the journeys in between topurchasing a weekly/monthly Travelcard.

If there are only two journeys more than two zones, buying an Oyster single journey ticket would. So you have a Travelcard that covers zones 2 to 3. In the morning you live in zone 1, in the afternoon you leave from zone 2 and visit a friend in zone 3. If you do not buy another travelcard for that trip, then when you leave your friend at 6pm you will need to buy a new ticket as it is now zone 4.

If you want travel 5 zones-covering Brentford to Kentish Town, you should buy Zones 1 4 which covers all those zones. And it's the same thing with monthly Travelcard, if your usual monthly final destination is Zone 1 only, then you buy a monthly Travelcard covering Zones 1 2. If you want to travel from Liverpool Street Station to Heathrow, you need a Travelcard that covers zones 1-6. But if you want to travel from Liverpool Street Station to Richmond, you need a Travelcard that covers zones 1-5.

You want to buy a weekly Travelcard for zones 1-4. You live in zone 3 and want to travel from zones 1 to 3 and 4 to 6.

Pay As You Go Oyster Card

If the reader has already had some experience with Oyster then this would be the best place to start. There will already be some knowledge of how Oyster cards work and that it runs out of money if you don't top it up, but they probably don't know about the new pay as you go option. There are some opening questions that can confirm this as an known technique to the reader, such as "Some readers aren't familiar with the new pay as you go option.

Travelcards On An Oyster Card

Your Oyster card is a fantastic way of getting around London at a discounted rate. Once you know your options, it is a flexible and simple way to travel in London. Most people who have used their card outside London only know how to use the Travelcard option. A Travelcard gives you cheap and unlimited travel in certain zones on the tube, buses and rail (when topped up with Pay as you go money). If you are visiting a zone that isn't covered by your current Travelcard, topping up your Oyster card with Pay as you go money will allow you to travel between the zones for a small additional fee.

This post covers how to do this using the Oyster card app or website but if your using a paper ticket remember that.

Paper Travelcards

There are several machines located at each tube station and they accept both notes and coins.  They'll print an extension ticket for you that's valid until 04. 00 the following morning. The extension ticket works interchangeably on all London Transport public transport, including the night buses, DLR, Tfl Rail and Overground trains. The paper version of the Travelcard only allows you to travel by bus, tube, DLR, London Overground and certain National Rail services within the zones indicated on the card.

If you're travelling beyond those boundaries, you need to buy a separate extension ticket. Paper versions of the Travelcard will only get you so far. If your journey from a station is longer than the ticket you're holding, then you'll need to buy an extension ticket from the underground station machine. If you have a paper Travelcard, make sure you upgrade it to a photocard Travelcard from your nearest London Underground Station. Otherwise, you may not be able to use it on the bus at the end of your trip.

Travelcards have a note on the back telling you not to use it in the buses or tubes.  I also had an awkward accidental encounter with someone who tells his wife he is just staying in his car for few hours. If you have a paper Travelcard, you need to buy an extension ticket from the underground station ticket machine. Usually, Travelcards are only valid for journeys made within the zones printed on the card.
