Can you use a contactless card without an Oyster card?
You can still use your contactless card as backup in case you forget your Oyster or don’t have the chance to top it up. If there’s anywhere that has fully embraced contactless technology, it’s London. In some places, such as the London buses, there isn’t even an option for you to pay by cash.
What is the difference between contactless and oyster?
Weekly capping on fares: Unlike Oyster, Contactless supports weekly capping. Whilst both Oyster and Contactless support daily capping (meaning you won’t ever pay more for your travel than if you had purchased a one day travel card), only contactless supports the Monday – Sunday weekly cap.
Should I use Oyster PAYG or contactless for Transport for London?
However, Transport for London DOES recommend using a contactless card as opposed to Oyster PAYG in certain cases. Contactless cards don’t need topping up, and benefit from daily or Monday-Sunday capping. It also gets rid of one more card out of your wallet- and who doesn’t want that?
What are the travel caps for oyster and contactless cards?
