It’s looking very likely that I’ll be getting a job in London very soon. Three strong possibilities, one is in Shoreditch, one Whitechapel and the other near Great Portland Street.
I’m currently living in Kent (Ashford) and wondering what’s the cheapest and most effective travelcard.
If I get a TFL travelcard from National Rail it looks considerably cheaper than buying the Oyster and National Rail season tickets separately, but I think it might come as part of the printed paper ticket so would have to rely on the magstripe. My experience is the magstripe tends to fail before a full days use.
Could I get the TFL part of my season ticket on an Oyster card; OR even better, can the Southeastern Key card work as an Oyster card as well?
Also, can it automatically renew rather than me having to buy a new one before the end of every season?
