Moving to the Uk - Transport

Recommended Posts

What's the go with Public transport in the UK. I know about the oyster card (£50 per 10 days), I believe that's just in London area though (correct me if I'm wrong). Isn't there some card you can get that's a decent price for 1 year and allows you to travel just about everywhere in the UK? Anyways, can you let me know what travel cards you got (or if you didn't) and roughly the cost?

 

Thankyou!

I had one of these back in the day: https://www.thetrainline.com/trains/great-britain/railcards/16-25-railcard and the National Express coachcard.

Trainpal was being advertised at the beginning of virtually every video on YouTube a few months ago. Most annoying ad ever, but apparently it's an "absolutely sick app" that helps you save lots of money on travel...

No. Apart from the young person's/student card stated above, which gets you discounted tickets, there is no UK-wide travel card, as the trains are operated by different companies.

For 12 months Oxford to London travel card I paid about £6k.
