Hello TA friends,
Could you please help us on these 2 practical issues? For our family holiday next Summer, as usual we'll be buying the 7day National Rail Travelcards, valid for 2for1 offers. We haven't purchased any since the new Photocard system, so I'm wondering:
1) since we'll briefly be in London mid-May (using our Oyster cards as usual), if at that time we can already have all 3 Photocards made, for use at the end of June? Or is there a new Photocard made with every 7 day Travelcard purchase? I figure having the Photocards ready in advance might save us some time. (I will be in a rush to get to my morning classes upon arrival in June!)
2) Also, can the actual 7day Travelcards still be purchased from the NR ticket machines, or are they sold only at the manned ticket counters now? I'm asking because I intend to purchase them early Saturday morning at Greenwich National Rail station, and if I remember correctly from our last trip, the ticket offices there don't open until 7 or 7:30am.
