so ill be starting at Royal Holloway end of September and I can't figure out my travel plan.
I don't use trains often, especially not out of zones 1-4, so I'm a little confused on what passes / tickets I should be buying.
what I've got so far is the following:
buy a zones 1-4 monthly oyster travel card (get 1/3 off on student oysters) and then buy daily SWR tickets from Waterloo to Egham which I believe will be £12 if I buy the 16-25 railcard and get discount.
I know that Oysters only work up to Feltham so i guess I could instead buy a zones 1-6 monthly travel card on my oyster and then buy an monthly extension ticket from Feltham to Egham? however would that mean I need to get off to tap out my oyster then get on another train? Would I automatically be charged a full fare if I don't get off at Feltham and tap out my oyster ?
im honestly so confused and have no idea what is the cheapest way. I've estimated my cost will be about £3,000 a year if I go in 5 days a week.
if anyone has made this commute to Royal Holloway I would really appreciate if you could tell me what travel cards you bought etc.
if anyone knows about trains and could help me out. would really appreciate it! I'm so nervous about starting university and the travel is just stressing me out so much, I also don't want to be overpaying if there is a way for me to reduce costs.
any help will be much appreciated ! thanks in advance
