Recently a friend of mine was in London and didn’t know which Tube ticket to buy or whatever it is
0:11
that you use to travel on the buses and tubes in London
0:13
now if you’re from the uk you can just use your contactless credit card
0:16
about which more later, but if you’re from abroad, you just arrived
0:20
And you don’t know where you live, what your name is,
0:22
or where you’re going; you probably don’t want to pay all those foreign bank fees on your transactions
0:27
So it’s probably easier to get an oyster card
0:30
now don’t be that person who hangs around for ages and gets in everybody’s way
0:34
First thing you want to do is come over here and hit get new card
0:38
You can decide here how many cards you want, but there’s only one of me
0:42
So I want one new oyster card
0:45
hit confirm
0:46
You then have to decide how much money you want to put onto your oyster card
0:49
It’s pay as you go
0:50
so it depends on how many journeys you do per day and
0:52
Then it’ll cap it as a day travelcard
0:54
Now a lot of people panic when they first arrive in London at Heathrow for example
0:58
and say look, do I buy a weekly pass, or do I buy a pay-as-You-go top up
1:02
now, so I think the best thing to do is when you arrive just stick 15 pounds credit on to an oyster card and then
1:09
that buys you some time to decide what kind of the journeys you’re going to be making after that,
1:16
So start with 15 pounds. the oyster part is a five-pound depo sit, which you pay
1:20
and the pay as you go Cedit is 15 pounds so altogether it’s 20 pounds
1:24
now don’t worry, you’ll get your deposit back when you return your card
1:27
plus any unused credit as long as it’s under 10 pounds
1:30
and VOILA!
1:31
why nice fresh oyster card ready for use
1:35
Now the left side of the escalator is for people who are much busier than you
1:39
So as far as londoners are concerned
1:41
if you’re standing on the wrong side you basically have no human rights
1:44
And you will be ploughed out the way by people like me
1:46
Excuse me get out of the bloody way please!
1:48
Your’re on the wrong side of the escalator.
1:51
Did you honestly not notice that everyone was…
1:53
alright!
1:54
Pretty obvious isn’t it?
1:56
I didn’t see the signs
1:59
On no account must you speak to anybody
2:02
make sure that you keep your head phones in…
2:07
You’re not allowed to speak to me
2:09
We’re in London
2:11
Oh, you’re not a Londoner
2:14
I keep meeting northerners, what’s going on
2:17
They actually speak to you on the tube.
2:20
you really are amateur, you haven’t even got your headphones in
2:28
amateur
2:30
Excuse me. I’m going to stare at my phone now
2:33
So if you’re in a real hurry, you can just swipe your credit card or your debit card as long as it’s got this
2:39
Contactless symbol on it
2:42
now that will work in exactly the same way as a pay-as-You-go credits on an oyster card
2:46
but you don’t have to top this up at the machine or anything .
2:49
you just take it and you just scan it straight onto the machine
2:52
and don’t be one of those people who gets in the way and stands in front of the ticket Gate. Sorry
2:57
Remember you can’t use cash on the bus so you’ve got to use your card
3:00
The thing about the oyster card it that you can use it again and again and again
3:04
and if you use its a 50 times in one day
3:06
it won’t go above a certain amount so you can just continue using it all day long. They call it a “capping”
3:11
I think it’s mout sort of six or seven quid or something
3:13
I Particularly like the number 15 bus because you can get one of these old routemasters, and they’re really good
3:18
They follow a route all the way from trafalgar square past the royal courts of justice
3:22
The monument
3:23
Sweeney Todd’s [Barbershop]
3:24
and it finishes up by the tower of [London]. There’s so much more space on these as well
3:29
I just feels so much more comfortable and you can even open the window here
3:34
look at that
3:35
I hate those horrible new ones
3:37
this seat over here in the corner ….my friend used to call it the molesters seat
3:43
weirdos and pervs used to sit in this one. I rather like it
3:46
You can sit at the back of the bus [and] just sort of observe everybody gets on from over here
3:52
thank you.
3:56
You can even use it on the boat, but it does cost a little bit more
4:09
But you really have to remember to swipe out
4:12
It’s very important otherwise you get charged extra
4:14
Sometimes the gates are already open
4:17
and a lot of people think I know I won’t get charged if I just walk straight through
4:20
But that’s not the case you’ll get charged eight pounds!
4:23
some stations Don’t even have ticket gates
4:25
so make absolutely sure that you touch in and out properly otherwise you can get absolutely skinned on the fare
4:33
be careful
4:34
You can even use it on the emirates airlines
4:37
Excellent
4:38
it cost’s £3.40 for an adult and £1.70 for a child if you have an oyster cost
4:48
In many ways there’s no need to pay for one of those expensive guided tour buses
4:52
with so many joolz guides online
4:54
You can just access them on your phone
4:56
and with an oyster card you can get around London for a reasonable price
