Oyster card refund/fund freeze

Hey peeps,

I buy monthly oyster cards which gives me zone 1-6 train and tube travel for work, which i use every day. I've just found out though that i will be working off site for a month so will only be in london one day during the working week. I've just renewed my oyster card last week and it costs over £180. Does anyone know if i can get a refund or have the card funds 'frozen' so that i can use it when i'm back. Otherwise i've lost quite a bit of pocket change!

Cheers

Oyster cards don't run out, the money stays on it until you use it, I've had mine for over a year and only use it now and again.

That's usually the case, but i have a monthly card where i pay a one off payment (£180) and i can travel anywhere in zone 1-6 for that month. It is time restricted rather than having money subtracted each time you use it.

Have you registered the card online? I think there are options to change your travelcard renewals there? :thinking: But it's a while since I used it, so could be wrong.


Cool, didn't realise you could manage it online, cheers. I just registered it, but it looks like i could only get a refund if it's lost or stolen. Annoying. Thanks again though
