The new 2 and 3 day Visitor Pass paper travelcard

New Author

Since Sunday the 24th of June, some new paper tickets have been introduced. They are the Visitor Passes, which are almost identical to One Day Travelcards, with a few differences.


The travelcard as it will look from LU ticket machines

This is effectively a trial, and is only available from the machines at the following stations:

Baker Street, Heathrow 2, 3 and 4, Marble Arch, Victoria, Bayswater, Paddington, Waterloo, Earls Court, Kings Cross, Queensway, Euston, Liverpool Street, Russel Square, Gloucester Road, London Bridge, and South Kensington.

TfL describes the purpose as: "The new 2 and 3 Day tickets are aimed primarily at short term visitors to London, who have not previously sorted out their ticketing arrangements and offers a single purchase covering all their travel without the need to obtain an Oyster card and obtain a refund of the deposit and any remaining balance before leaving London."

Things to keep in mind:

- The travelcard is a paper ticket and is not related to Oyster cards.

- The travelcard is fixed at zones 1-6, just like the regular travelcard paper ticket.

- The price is 2x or 3x the price of a 1 day travelcard, for 2 and 3 days, respectively.

- You CAN use the "normal" 1 day travelcard on National Rail, but you CANNOT use these new 2 and 3 day travelcards on National Rail. You can only use them on TfL Services like LU, LO, DLR, and buses.

- It is available from both ticket machines and Visitor Information Centres.
