The new 2 and 3 day Visitor Pass paper travelcard

New Author
0 Likes

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.
