Travel card ( 2 FOR 1 deals ) etc?

Greetings Advisers,

Great! You guys are awesome and enlightening the tourists. Few last minute questions:

1. Is "2 for1 Deal" deal available with travel card. Where do I buy? We will be staying near Tower Hill Station ( Prescot street central london ). Do they sell near TowerHill station ? What about station in Heathrow airport Terminal 5?

2. Can I buy different forms of Travel cards for different dates in advance? or there options to choose other than 7 day travel card?

( because we need only for 4 days with split up as follows: for day1 & day 4 : we need Zone 1-6 as we travel from Heathrow airport Terminal 5 and for day 2& 3: we need Zone 1-2 )

Would appreciate your response

TIA

Near your accommodation you would buy the travelcard at London Bridge or Fenchurch Street stations if you want 2 for 1. You can buy it at Heathrow but ones bought there do not give 2 for 1

You can buy one day or 7 day cards. Note that one day off peak travelcards are the same price for any zones up to 1-6 so you don't necessarily have to buy a different type each day

My suggestion:

Day one: buy one-day travelcards at Heathrow. These WON'T be valid for 2FOR1 so don't plan any activities where you would use 2FOR1 for that day.

Days 2, 3 and 4 - buy one-day travelcards from Fenchurch Street station. You can buy them all on the same day provided you make it clear to the clerk that you are buying for three consecutive days, and check they are dated correctly. Note that if you are travelling on a weekday (Monday-Friday) you cannot use the off-peak cards before 09.30 (no evening restriction).

As aboven the off-peak one-day travelcards only come in the zone 1-6 version, costing £8.90.
