Why should I get a Visitors Oyster Card instead of a Travelcard?

Transport for London is phasing the old paper travelcards out in favour of the Oyster Card. However, it is still possible to load a travelcard onto your Visitors Oyster Card once in London to help you plan your budget.

A Travelcard is a paper London travel pass valid for either a single day or seven days, and is available for certain combinations of travel zones. It is also valid on all public transport on the TfL network.
