Student Oyster Card
Sign up for a Student Oyster card online or at your college or university and get up to 30% off the cost of your travel cost in and around London.
For £10 only (the cost of buying a 18+ oyster card for students - was £5 in 2008/2009), you save a third on the cost of travelling on buses, London underground trains, Dockland Light Rail, some routes on Over ground trains, trams and eligible river boat services within the M25.
It is the way to go to make your student budget stretch further. The average living expenses for students studying in London is estimated to be about £850 per month, and it is believed that transportation and travel expenses could easily gulp a whooping 10 to 15 percent of this (£85 to £130). Just think off the savings a student oyster card could bring you.
You can also sign for a student oyster account if you are a student with compulsory work placement in and around London, taking you through London, even if you do not study in London.
