Just set your destination station to ‘London Travelcard Zones 1-6’ when searching for tickets to ensure the Travelcard is included. You will only need to use one ticket which will cover the whole of your journey and if you load it onto a c2c Smartcard, you’ll be able to tap in and out as you would do with an Oyster card, even if you’re not on the c2c line. How handy is that?


Do I need Smartcard for this ticket?

No, you can use this ticket without Smartcard. But you can load a Travelcard onto a Smartcard and tap in and out on London Travel Zones 1 – 6, just as you would with an Oyster card.

Why travel with a Smartcard?

You’ll get more benefits for travelling with a c2c Smartcard, including Automatic Delay Repay and loyalty points. You’ll also spare yourself the station’s ticket queues, since you’ve planned ahead and bought online.
