We are coming into London for 1 day and then leaving the next day to go to Southampton. I already have train tickets for Southampton. We will return to England for 1 day before leaving to go to the US.
I am confused on London Travelcard v Oyster Card v Contactless Card in 2019. Are these just all ways to pay for subway travel or do they save you money on the subway? From reading the forum I did discover that contactless card is a credit card and that US credit cards don't always work. I have set my credit card up in google pay. In the past I have found that I had to use my debit card for underground travel.
What is the best way to get from Heathrow to the premier inn which is close to the nearest stations London Euston & Kings Cross St. Pancras. or overground London St. Pancras International, Kings Cross and Euston (National rail and Eurostar Connections.)
We will be walking around in London using the underground on the day we arrive and the next day to go to the train station.
When we come back we will take the train from Southampton to London, use the subway for the day we arrive and the next day.
We prefer mass transit to avoid traffic via bus, taxi unless that is really just the same time frame.
2.Which card should I use for the travel above?
- While I'm at it what is the best way to get to Windsor Castle by public transportation? I am beginning to research logistics but would love help.
