Why create an account?

  • A quick and easy way to top up your Oyster card and/or renew your Travelcard
  • Once you set up your account you don't need to complete an online form with every purchase
  • Your Oyster card will be protected against loss or theft
  • You can view your journey history for up to the past eight weeks
  • You will receive email updates on planned disruptions to your regular route

Confirming that you are the card holder

  • We will ask you to confirm a security question and answer, or to give us details of the last journey you made with the Oyster card. The journey must have been made within the last 8 weeks (but not today).
  • If you have not yet provided us with a security question and answer, and you have not used the Oyster card to travel in the last 8 weeks you will be unable to create an account. Please make a journey using the Oyster card and try again the next day.
  • For further assistance, please contact TfL Customer Services on 0343 222 1234 (8am - 8pm).
