Student Oyster card and 16-25 railcard HELPWatch
What is the best option to go for in terms of student railcards and student oysters?
Do I purchase a 16-25 railcard and attach it to a pay as you go oyster?
Or should I purchase both a student oyster and 16-25 railcard
If you have both an 18+ student oyster card (with your photo and name) and a 16-25 railcard, then you can get 34% off off-peak PAYG tube fares in addition to all that.
So go for the second option.
And making more than just a single journey to/from each day (ie bus plus tube each way)
I got one which with 30% off, using zone 1-3 4 days a week just about worked out better than payg (as i could have taken a not via zone 1 route which was a bit longer)
10 days a month and it makes no sense.
Just get the railcard off you can use that for student travel (not valid before 10am),
