In their defence logged on easily after mine being dead for nearly 4 years, had forgotten password and email but it was easy enough sorted and money paid back within a few days. Thanks OP worked for me!


t"top up online" good luck with that, you could be waiting till monday until you see your tenner topup....great for the weekend before that! But they dont tell you it will be delayed topup UNTIL you've paid. TFL is easily the worst system I have ever used anywhere, and sadly a lot of it is down to Oyster "its not our fault, call Oyster, we dont do our own transport system RUBBISH"


Clearly states it won't let create account unless travelled in the past 8 weeks & provided security question and answer... Catch 22 with creating account or topping up online! (mad)


Got an email from TFL that my refund has now been processed I wonder how many refund requests they had?


Thanks OP. I had no idea at all about this, but now I'm awaiting a refund. (highfive)

I doubt you are allowed to your Heathrow Express ticket on TFL Rail. Please check with TFL customer contact centre on 0343 222 1234


Yes.. You would anyway need to have a zone 1 to 9 TC to get to Amersham from Heathrow. Now your z1to9 TC will cover your journey on TFL rail (earlier Heathtow connect) between Heathrow T4 and paddington. As earlier you would need to purchase a separate ticket on Heathrow connect.


Will this make it any cheaper to get to Amersham?


I have a Heathrow Express ticket (Advance Purchase), and was wondering if I can use it on a TFL Rail train instead? Reason why I want to do this is because I want to travel from Ealing Broadway to Heathrow now, whereas I had originally planned to travel from Paddington to Heathrow.


Hmm I take it you read the daily fail. Actually the additional cost for tfl rail to Heathrow is due to Heathrow charging for use of their tunnels and privately owned infrastructure. But feel free to spout nonsense about overpaid drivers (y)

how will this work if you have android pay active in the same phone? how would system know not to take money from android pay? just wordering...


It is a free deal . It is very useful if you lived in London.


How much does this usually cost to make it a deal? Or is it just a conversation about an app?


So as I said, old card was £3


Deposit for the oyster card has been £5 for years. It was £3 a very long time ago after it stopped being free.

Fresh (Live and in Shell) Oysters £2.79 @ Lidl
6 Equisite Pacific Oysters. Find in the chilled section. Limited Offer.

Not sure funny is the correct word


It's not difficult to open oysters. You need an oyster knife and a tough piece of cloth to open the oyster. Search for the 'hinge' of the shell and give it a yank. Having said that, even if the oyster is delicious, you are worried that there might be something dodgy with the meat, especially when you open the shells, you see some red worm wriggling around... Best fry oysters in batter and buy those pre-shelled chunky ones. My mum made lovely oysters in batter .Or you can even try tempura!

Not an allowable tax deduction.


Is this tube only?


The Gold Card isn't a discount across all of National Rail. http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/times_fares/ticket_types/46573.aspx As well as being an Annual Season ticket, you also get a range of discount benefits, including discounts on other leisure rail journeys in the Network Railcard Area for yourself and others. Annual Season tickets and Annual Travelcards are issued as Annual Gold Cards when: the origin station is within the area, or the issuing station and either the origin station, destination station or both are within the area. A Gold Record Card will be issued if your Annual Travelcard is on an Oyster card.


Gold card gives you discount on the entire british rail network unlike network railcard which is for the south east. Cheers!


Walk barefooted then.

PS railcards cannot be added to your contactless card for tube travel. This applies to all railcards, young persons, disabled, 60+ etc.


can you still get OYSTER monthly statement, even though you use contact less


Before the 16/9/14 the information about the contactless introduction on the TFL website stated that you needed to link it to your Oyster account, that is what confused me. You are right, it isn't necessary to link it to an Oyster card. You just need to register it on the Oyster website. Having just read through the T's & C's on TFL about contactless, I can see that you can track your journeys and fares without an Oyster card. You just need your payment card registered online.


I knew about the buses. It isn't just tube, from 16/9/14 you can also use contactless on DLR, London Overground and National Rail.


I told my Sister about using her contactess debit card a few months ago when she couldn't use her car. She has never had an Oyster card & had no problems with her debit card. I cannot see anything on TFL's site about having to link it to an Oyster card. btw...you have been able to use contactless debit cards on the busses for nearly 2 years. It's only recently that it's been extended to the underground.

Get dealGet deal

Seems like a good deal. I Go to London a few times a year and have been delayed lots of times - once even causing me to miss my coach home to south Wales!


Thanks for the positive feedback. The only data I use is your journey history and it is only accessed by a computer program every 48 hours. TfL sometimes reject a claim and usually because they think the delay was not their fault. Currently they approve around 85% of claims submitted. Membership is still quite small with 2000 members, but it's growing. Devin at claimmyrefund


Could you answer the following for me please - Do you only pay the £2 and nothing for each claim made. BTW for others.... I wondered that how they use the details the site hold and about to write a criticising comment but then by the miracle of Google I found this website Commutingexpert.com. Read it and was satisfied, there is also a ITV interview he(Devin Smith, who found that manually claiming refunds for each delayed Tube journey was simply too much hassle.) appeared in. Well I think he is the Chris Holbrook of FPL. Then I wondered how he earns his money. A) Adds and affiliates. B) Well according to statistics there are 10million unclaimed refunds mainly because of the hassle that goes into claiming it. Devin was angry after TFL removed the online claim form. So he created his own. Now he is helping others there are two options 1) FREE but with Adds 2) £2 per year no adds Both are auto process of the claims. Read on..... Reading the lemoncurd's comments and Tweeter feeds I would choose the option 2. as I am one of the 10mil commuter who couldn't be bothered and have lost loads of unclaimed due to this laziness. So £2 is well worth loosing over many hundreds of pounds. So that is how he is also going to earn 10million commuters *£2 = £20, 000, 000 POSSIBLE earning over the year(Possible because he will need 10mill to register as paid).But if only half register he is still in a buck. But even if yo half that he in £5m. Not bad for a website he created for himself then shared it with others. So my question is WHY THE HECK I DIDN'T THINK OF IT.


Been using this service for 2 years. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!!! Sometimes I have received refunds without realising i was eligible, so would not have manually applied for one on the TFL site. You get regular emails confirming how may of your journeys have been tracked and how may claims have been made. £1.99 per year - 1 refund more than pays for it. So far I've had around 20 refunds.


Obvious question 1, has anyone actually used these guys? Don't really fancy giving random companies my usernames and passwords for a service tied to my credit card

All staff at tube stations *should* know how to do it, but it doesn't seem they do. Took a few stations before I got the discount added to my oyster at London Bridge tube. Yes, you get a discount off of all zone 1-6 travel inc trains.


Question Regarding Olyster based travelcards If I have an annual zone 1-2 oyster card, what do I need to do to register? I asked at Leister Sqr tube and they did not know. Qestion Regarding NR journeys in zones 1-6 Does the discount also apply to overground journeys operated by ATOC (ie non TfL) eg SWT or Southern?


If I use my disabled railcard for the oyster discount (myself plus hubby) would this cancel any family railcard discount that I would normally have for my two children (I think that they would travel at a discounted/free rate with the family railcard)?

thanks for the info


It's the same for the non-residents' 5-10 card, which I've just ordered for my nieces: there's currently a £5 fee when you apply online but we can get that refunded from the card when we collect the cards in London because it makes them free on everything, pretty much - I decided it was worth getting the cards simply to save the trouble of trying to get free-travelling 5-10 year-olds through all the automatic barriers!


Its going to cost £10 from September 1st whether or not you live in London. I have updated the first post to make it a bit clearer. I don't live in London, so I didn't read the stuff for London residents.


Ok I've sussed this out. It is free at the moment. If you are a non London resident it costs £5 but that is put onto the card and refunded if not used. However it is going to cost £10 for non London residents from September and that money will not be put onto the card.
