How it works How it works

All the benefits of an Annual Travelcard. None of the pain of paying upfront.

If you’re a commuter in London, buying an Annual Travelcard saves you money on tube, train and bus travel. But it’s a lot of cash to find in one go. So here’s a plan. We lend you the money for a fee and you pay us back in 10 monthly payments. It will cost you less than buying 12 monthly Travelcards over the year. In fact you could save £190 if you travel in zones 1 to 4!(see FAQ 10 for how we have calculated that saving)

Simply tell us your zones and travel start date and if you are accepted through the online application process your Annual Travelcard will be loaded on a new Oyster card and delivered to you directly by our friends at thetrainline.com, free of charge, via secure Royal Mail special delivery, which needs a signature.

On journeys between Zones and starting on Please select a date

The start date you enter can be no sooner than 10 days and no later than 28 days before you want your card to start.

Please be aware that the price you pay for your Annual Travelcard is based on the start date of the card not the date you place your order. So for example, if your start date is after the January price increase it will be based on the new price.

Our pricing is really simple, we charge a Transaction Fee (5.0% of the amount borrowed) on top of the cost of an Annual Travelcard, which is equivalent to an APR of 9.5%. APR stands for Annual Percentage Rate and simply put this means the total amount credit will cost across a one year period. The APR is there to help you compare different offers that may be presented at differing rates of interest, across differing numbers of months with varying fees.

Representative Example: Credit limit £1,200. Transaction fee £60. Representative 9.5% APR.
