How does the Travelcard work?

The Travelcard is date stamped for the dates you wish to use it. The travelcard that is included with the London Pass package can be used within Zones 1-6 on London’s local buses, London Underground, National Rail Trains, Docklands Light Rail, and the Tramlink.

Show your Travelcard to conductors on the bus, and simply put it through the turnstiles at train stations.

Is the transport limited to certain times of the day?

Please see the transport page for restrictions on travelcards.

Can I use the Travelcard from the airport?

You may use your Travelcard from Heathrow and London City Airports. If you are flying into Heathrow you will need a Zone 1-6 travelcard, and you will be able to use your Travelcard straight away on the Underground (Piccadilly line). If you are flying into London City Airport you will require a Zone 1-4 travelcard, and from the airport you will be able to use your Travelcard to board DLR services into central London.

Does everyone need a Travelcard?

No. Children under 11 travel free off-peak on Tube, bus etc.
