Is the cheapest way to use the expensive public transport of London.

You can get the Oyster in whatever Underground station you want. I got mine on Paddington Station, you only have to pay a fixed quantity of money as security deposit and then charge the money you want.

By the way I think that they charge you the minimun fare for the travel you just did, and that is superb!

If you keep your Oyster Card after your trip you can put your change and spare coins on the card, for instance at Heathrow airport. Which is useful when you can't change coins and have no time to spend your remaining money.

You can also get the remaining balance back when returning the card.

At the end of your trip you can give the card in wherever metropolitan station and you receive 3 Pounds back
