Oyster travel card

girlfriend was thinking about taking a day trip to St Albans, Epsom or somewhere beyond the M25. But we don't really want to go through the hassle of buying tickets for NR; how far out can you go with only a oyster card?

Thameslink, Southern, SWR, southeastern, GWR, c2c and greater anglia are all okay, if it matters

You could go to Ewell West and get a taxi, but it would probably cost the same as buying a ticket to Epsom.   [ hansford1 3 years ago ]

It's possible to get off at Elstree and Borehamwood (Zone 6) and then get a bus to St Albans. Either the 601 or the 638 uno buses head in that direction. The buses you'll have to pay cash however.   [ Trab3n 3 years ago ]

You don't even need a physical copy of the railcard either, I downloaded the app which you can use instead.   [ bullnet 3 years ago ]

The furthest you can get from London, using Charing Cross as a starting point is Chesham (stright-line distance). If you want to use a train, then it would be Amersham - Unless you want to go to Gatwick Airport. The following stations are out of Zone 9 but you can still use your Oyster card - Broxbourne, Rye House, St. Margarets, Ware and Hertford East Gatwick Airport Merstham, Redhill, Earlswood, Salfords and Horley Ockendon, Chafford Hundred, Purfleet and Grays   [ kar-eem 3 years ago ]
