Transferring Underground to Overground

If I transfer from the underground to the overground (or vice versa) using my Oyster I am charged for one journey or two separate journeys?

One journey - even if you have to physically tap out of one station and tap in again at the connection station.

The only restriction is that you must achieve the connection within the specified interchange time - but this is usually quite generous - about 20 minutes.

It will charge as one journey as long as you haven't hung about too much in course of the transfer.

Bear in mind that the cost of that one journey may be different depending on what you mean by 'the overground'. Journeys using National Rail (as distinct from the 'London Overground' specific routes ) cost slightly more.
