Travelling on the London Underground FAQ

How much is it to travel on the London Underground?

If you're planning to travel with a standard single ticket, be prepared to pay £4.90 within zones 1 - 3. If you have an Oyster Card, the cost of travel is between £2.40 - £3.30 during peak times, and £2.40 - £2.80 during off-peak times.

How much is a London Underground travel card?

A London Underground travel card, or Oyster card, can be purchased for £5. When you're done with your Oyster card, you can hand it in at any information desk and get the £5 deposit back. Travellers can now also use contactless payment cards to travel on the tube and bus network and are charged the same as if using an Oyster card. Just tap your contactless card on the yellow circle to use.

Is there a daily price cap on the London Underground?

There is a daily cap on the London transport system which means that you'll only ever be charged a certain amount per day. If you go over this amount you can still travel as much as you like but you will no longer be charged. The cap for zones 1-2 during off-peak hours is £6.60, the prices steadily go up the further outside the city you travel. For example, if you travel from zone 1 out to zone 6, the daily cap is £12 during off-peak hours.

When does the London Underground 'rush hour' start and finish?

'Rush hour' is between 07:30 and 09:30, and 17:00 and 19:00. These are periods when it can become extremely busy in the stations, trains and on the platforms. Occassionally, some stations in the centre will close briefly due to overcrowding, but this is not a frequent occurence.
