Good Stay in Zone 4 and Use of Travel Card (Zone 1-6)

Hello Friends,

We are planning a short trip to London from 4th June to 8th June.

We want Economical stay and hence we choose near Zone 4. Take approx 60 min journey to Central London for Siteseen and than return back in the evening to Hotel / Apartment / Lodge.

How will the Day TravelCard covering Zone 1 - 6 be helpful.

On review at nationalrail.co.uk it says we still need to buy tickets and it cost us around 30 GBP.

Plz guide how to go ahead to avoid Travel cost above the Card price. We are taking Travel Card to get 2for1 deals.

Plz help in Hotel selection and Travel Card asap. Need to freeze stay as soon as possible.

Regards,

Chirag Shah

What is your budget per night in pounds? How many in your party?

We're are you staying in zone four that takes 60 mins to get to the centre?! I live in zone 3 an it takes me 15 mins to London bridge station, zone 4 adds another 8 mins on, so still under 25 mins to LB, and just over 30 mins to Charing Cross. Try south Of the river as they use proper trains (not tubes although you still use oyster) and they are faster/ less stops.

Where exactly in zone 4 (hotel name and location) are you planning to stay?

If you're staying in z4 and going into central London each day, all you need are zone 1-4 travelcards. Zone 1-6 cards are overkill as you wouldn't use the outer two zones.

if you are travelling solely in London you only need Travelcards, you don't need additional tickets for train travel.

If you are travelling outside London then you will

I'd say £50 per night for 4 is next to impossible, even in zone 4. There is a real risk you will end up in a slum hotel.

You could try hostels which have family rooms, or the Travelodge Vauxhall or Bethnal Green have rooms for 4 at £89/£79 respectively for your dates. You would save quite a bit a day in travel as they are zone 1/2 as well.

The YHA Earls Court (more of a backpacker place) has rooms from £59 but is again central. The only other alternative is Easyhotel which has centrally located hotels from £30-40 a night but you would need 2 rooms as I don't think they do family rooms.

You could also see if the Indian YMCA (which offers accommodation to all nationalities and not just students has anything:

For your dates, Travelodge Cricklewood (convenient for Luton Airport) and Travelodge Hounslow (convenient for Heathrow) both have rooms at under £50 a night.
