Top tips to help tourists save money on transport when heading to the city of London

Travellers heading to the city of London will want to save money as like any capital city in the world it can be expensive. There are definitely some techniques that tourists can administer to save money when on holiday. Something that visitors don’t often think about is the cost of travel and to save money they should get an Oyster card when in the capital. This is better than purchasing daily Travelcards unless tourists are making multiple journeys to a number of destinations during their holiday. In this instance it’s probably a good idea to get a daily or weekly Travelcard if that will ultimately mean a lower amount of money is spent on transport.

It’s also important to travel at off-peak times that is usually after 9.30am and before 4pm as this is when ticket prices are higher. This is also when the underground is really busy so it is probably advisable to head out to attractions after the morning commuter rush. Bus rides are actually cheaper than the tube, and also a lot of fun for tourists who want to see the city’s sights through a scenic tour. The London bus service is quick and efficient offering a number of different routes that cross the city in a number of directions from the centre to the suburbs. There are also many bus routes that feature a number of famous landmarks along the way.

Tourists should definitely stay close to a tube station when they visit the city of London. A great destination to pick is the Tudor Court Hotel Paddington, which is close to Paddington Station. This is great for tourists who want to easily get around to places of interest, and it also offers the fast Heathrow Express service to the airport. This is one of the best hotels in Norfolk Square London that has stunning rooms with many modern amenities such as a flatscreen television. There is also a private en-suite bathroom, and tourists must remember to book on the website to get a free breakfast during their stay at this magnificent hotel.

A great tip about saving money on transport in London is to actually head around the city by walking. It’s a wonderful way to see the sights and travellers can discover the area they are staying in by wandering around. Often tourists don’t need to catch the tube or bus between stations as it is a short walking distance. Travellers should work out where they are heading for the day and see if they can walk from place to place. It really helps save some money on holiday especially if tourists are heading around the city as part of a family or large group.

A great service that has started recently is the night tube where many underground lines are running 24 hours a day on Friday and Saturday nights. Usually tourists may have had to rely on night buses or taxis to take them home late in the evening. Now they can get on certain lines including the Northern, Piccadilly, Victoria and Central to get around the city to their accommodations. There are many ways to save using public transport so tourists should have a think about where they are going when they head to the vibrant city of London.
