Harry's top 5 travel tips in London

By UALHalls 15 Jan 2023

It's important to budget your expenses and as a student, every little helps! Here are Harry's top tips on how to save money while travelling in London:

  1. If you have a Rail Card, you can link it to your standard or student Oyster card to save up to 34% on off peak travel on the tube and DLR. Just speak to a member of staff at the desk to help you.
  2. Avoid peak times which are 6.30-9.30am and 4-7pm, from Monday to Friday. Traveling during peak hours cost more.
  3. Walking parts of your journey can help you save some money and also get some steps in! You'll be surprised how close some stations are to each other.
  4. You can plan your journey with TFL's hopper fare in mind. The hopper fare allows you unlimited bus travel for one hour for £1.65!
  5. Day trips are available for affordable prices and you may get good students discounts as well :)
