Visitors travelling on London’s transport network can now use the new Group Day Travelcards, from Transport for London (TfL), available for purchase online, VisitBritain has announced.
Available for groups of 10 or more people, Group Day Travelcards allow visitors and tourists to use a variety of different modes of transport when travelling in London, and are available online for the first time.
Group Day Travelcards are valid on Tube, DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail and most National Rail services within London fare zones 1 to 6. They can also be used on all London Bus services and on trams.
VisitBritain Commercial Director Carol Dray said: ‘Navigating a new city can be stressful, especially when you’re travelling in a large group, so we’re thrilled to be making this process easier by giving visitors the option to purchase their Group Day Travelcards online and begin exploring London’s fantastic sights from the moment they arrive.
‘The Group Day Travelcard is a ‘must have’ pass for any large group traveling on London’s extensive transport network, which not only offers easy access to many of the city’s attractions but also puts the rest of Britain within easy reach.’
Transport for London Director of Marketing Chris MacLeod said: ‘London is a fantastic place to visit any time of the year. Our partnership with VisitBritain will ensure customers travelling to London can now buy Group Day Travelcards online in advance, allowing them to start exploring all that the Capital has to offer more quickly.’
Group Day Travelcards can be used after 9.30am weekdays as well as anytime at weekends and national holidays at the cheaper price of £8 per adult and £4 per child. This compares with £12.10 and £6 for individual adults and children with a standard Day Travelcard. Groups must travel together when using the Group Day Travelcard.
Available for buying online from the TfL Visitor Shop, which VisitBritain operates on behalf of TfL, visitors travelling in groups can get their cards before their trip and can use them as soon as they arrive in London. Group Day Travelcards are also available to buy from ticket machines at Tube stations across London. Travel trade partners can also purchase these discounted tickets directly on the website, VisitBritain said in its release.
