I need some advice I live in London, and will be studying there. What is the difference between a Oyster card 18+ And the 16-25 railcard. I understand they both have discounts etc, but do you get both or one or the other… 🤦*♀️ I’ve seen people saying about attaching the railcard to the oyster? Please help
What is everyone’s opinions on these two.
Thanks in advance
If you are studying in London I would highly recommend getting a railcard if you plan to use any public transport.
A railcard will allow you to get discounts on certain train fares and as you said you can "attach" the railcard to your 18+ Oyster to get certain discounts on travel when you use the tube.
It's not essential to travel unlike an oyster card however, it just makes you eligible for discounts.
There's more information about the railcard here if you are interested:
