How to use it
On Tube/ TFL rail/ National rail service: touch your Visitor Oyster card flat on a yellow card reader when you enter a station to start the journey. At the end of your journey, touch your card flat on the yellow card reader as you leave the station; this means you'll be charged the correct fare for the journey you've taken. Don't touch the reader twice when you get in. If you have any doubts: the gate doesn't open, you don't get in in time, please call the service staff, always near the turnstiles.
On the bus: Only touch your Visitor Oyster card on the yellow card reader at the start of your journey. Don't touch out when you get off a bus or tram, or you will be issued with a penalty fare.
It doesn't expire.
