One day visitorPirjjo Karjalainen ,FinlandAge: 50-59September 25, 2013
We had only one day to spend in London during our visit to Britain, but the London travel card was the best way to travel London around during that day. Hopefully next time we can visit London for a week or more, I'd love it! <3

Works As Advertisedpcfquilter ,USAAge: 60+September 24, 2013
No hassles or surprises. Easy to use and works as advertised. A better option when considering heavy rail travel. Not going to save any money using it for short day trips from London. Suggest you add up the cost of the trips you plan to take before purchasing. Buying a ticket at the station(s) is not difficult.

Fastest way around LondonGayle Crouch ,USAAge: 60+September 23, 2013
I found the London underground to be easy to negotiate with the London Visitor Travel Card. The maps of the underground are easy to read with the color coded routes. There is a lot of stairs to negotiate if you want stop at some of the stations. Just stop at the train station and get the card(s) when you arrive in London from the voucher you purchase and start exploring the sites in London. Make sure and plan your routes in advance from your room and you should have no problems.

Our UK VisisJohn Getty ,CanadaAge: 60+September 20, 2013
We very much enjoyed our visit to the UK - a trip enhanced by the London Visitor Travel Card. The use of this pass and what we were able to see and do exceeded our expectations. The pass enabled us to fully experience much of what London and other parts of the UK offers efficiently and at less cost than alternatives. Customer service is superb. We recommend this pass to all those visiting the UK.

DemagnetizedTeresa ,USAAge: 50-59September 18, 2013
The card should have been 5 stars for convenient, but no one told me that I shouldn't put the card near my phone. I had a 7 day pass, and I was only able to use it in the turnstile ONCE. After that, it wouldn't work. So each time I used the Tube, and remember that you have to use it to get on, but also OFF, the train, I had to find a Tube staff member to let me through the gate. This REALLY SUCKED, as often the staff meember was answering questions from some other tourist who needed help, and I had to wait until they were finished. So it worked once, and I had to get help c.30 times. When I asked several staff members how I could fix this, as I had to spend 7 days asking for help every time I used the card, they said I might be able to get the card reset if I went back to where I bought it. Well, that was really out of the way. Why can't any ticket office at any tube station re-magnetize my card??? They should be set up so that they can do so, as many others were in the same boat I was. This really put a damper on my trip, as I couldn't pass easily and quickly through any turnstile. Since the card was expensive, to have it also be inconvenient was a real pain.

Getting Around LondonJanice Anderson ,USAAge: 60+September 17, 2013
Order your London Travel Card before you leave the US. Then when you arrive in the city, go to any rail station and recive your dated Travel Card. Then you are ready to get around easily and conveniently with unlimited travel on The Tube (subway), the railroad, and the bus. You can easily travel all over the London Area without having to pay for individual fares and tickets. It is a great time and money saver

Good Purchase AlwaysDave ,CanadaAge: 60+September 17, 2013
I travel to England every year, covering International Tennis in Eastbourne and visiting relatives and friends in London. The London Travel Pass is excellent value, I use it for 7 days and it is perfect for my needs. I primarily use the tube from Hampstead to Victoria Station and all areas in the one and two zone. Saves so much time, not having to fiddle with paying every time you either use the bus or the tube. I always make sure I take a few rides on the double decker buses as it reminds me of my childhood living in London for four years. I highly recommend buying this pass before leaving North America!

The Tube is the best!Arlie Davis ,USAAge: 40-49September 17, 2013
Spent almost two weeks in London, had a grand time. The Tube is like a time machine crossed with a Star Trek teleporter! You get everywhere on it, it's amazing, and you're there before you're there! I seriously wish my own city had something as amazing as the Tube. Only it doesn't.

Best way to get around LondonPaul Canniff ,USAAge: 50-59September 17, 2013
We recently spent three weeks in London, and for two of those weeks we used 7-day Travel Cards for transport. For the rest of it we used Oyster cards, rail passes, etc. and we planned our days accordingly, doing the most in-London travel during the weeks we had the Travel Cards. Short answer: the Travel Card makes it really easy. I'd even recommend it over the Oyster card. Some of my fellow US visitors might be less familiar with big-city transportation. Don't be afraid! Hopefully by now you've been talked out of a rental car; between the dense traffic, the opposite-side driving, parking, and the extra daily fee of the Congestion Zone, it's a way to spend time and money just being frustrated in London. The legendary cabs are superb, but also subject to traffic issues and can be a bit expensive. I also found them harder to track down during peak hours, like any big city, and that was often just when we needed to move on to dinner. Kids and waiting around don't mix so well. So: a) get a good London transport map, and/or b) get a good London transport APP for your smartphone; c) leave plenty of time for walking to, from, and WITHIN the stations, and d) when you have time, use the bus! Double-deckers give a great view of the city For my transit-savvy friends, the reason I like the Travel Card over the Oyster is that it is unlimited, and you know exactly how many days are covered. No doubt you can save some money using the Oyster, especially if you will have some days with lighter travel. BUT, if you're a visitor seeking to maximize your value from those expensive flights and hotels, it's nice to avoid ANY delay where your Oyster gets to 0, you need to top it off, and there's a queue at the only working machine. And yes, we had to do that! It's not quite so easy to know in advance the amount you'll need on the Oyster card, with zones and times of day and daily caps and all that. In short: the travel card is a great value, and I'd highly recommend it.
