How different is it from the 16-18 oyster? Is it hella expensive? The normal oysters kind of are. How much would it be for a day? And how long does it last for? Up to what age?

The 16+ Oyster card entitles you to half price on adult fares while using TfL services (bus, tube, tram, DLR, Overground and some national rail services). I believe you can use this until you're 18 and at school/college. If you're still at college and over 18, you will need your school/college to prove it.

The 18+ Oyster card entitles you to 30% off the adult prices on the same services. You can use this as long as you're a student.

Use this to check a price for a single fare.

Use this for daily and weekly capping.

If you're 16-17 years old, then yes.

However, if you're 18, you will need to be in full-time education AND live in a London borough to be eligible for the 16+ Oyster card. I don't think sitting exams privately counts as you won't be enrolled at a school/college.

I guess I should stick to the 18+ then. Thanks

You might also be eligible for the 16-25 railcard.
