London Transport: Two Free Days of Travel


Share this with all of your London and UK friends!

Pretty straightforward promotion, on November 14 and 28, you can ride TFL (Transport for London) services for FREE. This is valid on tube, train, bus, Overground or DLR service across the whole transport network!

The main way to get the free travel is if you have one of Mastercard’s contactless payment cards. This will allow you to save up to £21.80 each day, crazy. There’s no registration process to complete, as anyone with a contactless Mastercard credit card will be automatically refunded for the full cost of transport on those two days, which the company is calling Fare Free Fridays.

Now if you don’t have a Mastercard contactless payment card, you can also use their smartphone app, Cash on Tap. Oddly enough, I don’t see support for iPhones on their list of compatible devices. I have a feeling their list isn’t exactly complete though, if you have a Android compatible device I’d probably give a try and see if it works to save a few pounds.

Remember to take your Mastercard out of your wallet to use it, or else you could accidentally pay with your Oyster, or a card from a different provider.
