I'm a newbie to using an Oyster card on the tube and am only an occasional visitor to London, so I have just topped up my PAYG card which I purchased a couple of years ago. Cool, eh?
I am planning a visit tomorrow and my friend and I are travelling from Victoria tube station to Wimbledon. I have checked the route planner and it tells me that I have to get the District line from Victoria to Earl's Court, then change trains but get on the District line again to Wimbledon.
My question concerning the Oyster card is this: Having tapped the yellow 'thingy' to begin my journey at Victoria, then passed the card to my friend to allow him entry, when we exit the train and get on the other train to Wimbledon, do we have to tap anything and if so, what and where?
I am just conscious that I may be charged more than the £2.30 off peak fare, which it should be running between zones 1-3 for this journey.
Complicated stuff this tapping in and out with an Oyster! Many thanks. Wendy
