    Hi
    I already have an 18+ Oystercard and until now have only been using it as a pay as you go card since I don't travel everyday. But now I will probably need to use the tube everyday and would like to pay a weekly fee. Does anyone know if I have to buy the weekly fee online or go to the station and ask there?

    Also, sorry if this is in the wrong forum :/


    Thanks!

    Go up to any ticket machine (the automatic ones), scan your oyster card on the yellow bit and select 'buy/renew season ticket', then you can choose a weekly ticket, choose whether you want it to start from that day or the next day, enter your card and pin and when it's confirmed the machine will ask you to scan your oyster card again. Once this is is done you've got 7 days unlimited bus and tube travel on your card!

    I get them once a fortnight and they save so much money and time

    So does this mean you sign up to it, and then after a week you remove your card association from it (while still having the week's worth of free travel) and then after a week you add your card again and start the cycle over?

    not exactly, you've paid for a weekly ticket....when it expires you can add the ticket to your card.
    you don't add your card to the ticket, it's the other way round

    Register your oyster card online, then you can pay online and set up auto topup. Saves you so much time not having to top up.

    If you are using the tube every day you might want to consider a monthly travel card, generally works out cheaper.
