In 2014 contactless payment technologies were implemented as another payment option on London's public transport. It is very similar to the Oyster card, the smartcard based travel solution currently used by the vast majority of passengers. The big potential for contactless payment cards is that the cards are not specific to London public transport, you are using your own debit or credit card.
An Oyster card is an electronic plastic smartcard that can be loaded with pay-as-you-go transport credit. There are two options available to tourists: the regular Oyster card used by London natives, and the Visitor Oyster card, which is specially designed for use on one-off trips. Both cards work in conjunction with the yellow card readers installed at all transport stations, calculate the.This is called Pay As You Go. Key Point: The Oyster fare for any individual journey is the lowest fare available (contactless card fares are identical to Oyster). For each calendar day there is a fare cap (the maximum you can pay in a single day on public transport) and this is always less than the alternative 1 day Travelcard. Oyster fare caps are explained in more detail further down the.The interest rate you'll pay for the equity loan will be 1.75% in the first year you'll have to pay it back, meaning only the best mortgage deals will beat that.

No matter how often you use your card to pay as you go, as long as you touch in and out for each journey you will never be charged more than the daily cap. Caps are priced as peak and off-peak and by how many zones are used. Peak caps are charged if the card is touched in between 06:30 and 09:30 on a weekday, off-peak caps are charged at all other times.
Oyster pay-as-you-go users travelling between two points without passing through Zone 1 are eligible for a lower fare, and from 6 September 2009 can confirm their route by touching their Oyster cards on the pink validators when they change trains, allowing them to be charged the appropriate fare without paying for Zone 1 travel.

The price and charges you pay may differ if your car is registered after 1 April 2020. Please.
For stays of less than a week the cheapest option is usually to use pay-as-you-go with an Oyster card, or to buy 1-day paper travelcards. Heathrow Airport is in zone 6, so to get from here to central London you may want to buy either a single ticket or a zones 1-6 one-day travelcard (or you can use a faster but more expensive train service). London City Airport is in zone 3 (near a DLR station.
My view is the current situation is somewhat 'stable' as when I do the math on my current property the mortgage payments based on 20% deposit 1.5% prime rate and 25 years term are about the same as the rent. And that's a repayment mortgage not interest only. When the market is too far ahead the mortgage payments normally rise above the rent, when the market's depressed the reverse happens.
Almost got travel sussed but 1 last question. Plan to get pay as you go loaded to oyster card and my understanding is the daily cap is leved at that of the travelcard price for that journey but as we are travelling monday peak time are we charged.

If you do not plan to use the Oyster from LHR (meaning you take the HEX or a private car, etc) than using a paper TC for zones 1-2 and paying the excess for the 2 trips to zone 6 might be a very economical way to go, especially if those trips to zone 6 are off-peak on a RAIL line rather than a TUBE line.
Pay-As-You-Go: The best part of Oyster Card Pay-As-You-Go is that you will never be charged more than it would cost to purchase a 1-Day-Travelcard. Once you have spent the equivalent amount on your Oyster Card, that you would have spent for a 1-Day-Travelcard, your Oyster Card will stop deducting money from your Pay-As-You-Go balance.

So if you’re working, studying or visiting relatives in the suburbs of London, you don’t need a Travelcard including zone 1 unless you travel through zone 1 to reach your destination or enter or exit a station in zone 1. Travelcards excluding zone 1 are cheaper and for occasional visits to the centre, you can top up your Oyster card with some Pay as you go money to pay the difference.
