Find out how to travel on Great Northern trains in London on a contactless debit or credit card without buying a ticket for each trip.

Get on board quicker

Are you travelling to London and worried about buying tickets to get around the city? Where you’re going, you won’t need tickets.

If you have a contactless debit or credit card you can pay for buses, Tubes, trams and most trains in London.

This includes Great Northern trains and most National Rail services in the capital, as well as Docklands Light Railway and London Overground trains.

Contactless benefits

You won’t have to queue for tickets at the station and won’t have to top up your Oyster card.

Just touch in and out if you’re on the train, Tube or DLR. On buses and trams, you only need to touch your card on the card reader when you start your journey .

Contactless is also usually cheaper than paying with cash. 

It’s normally the same price as using an Oyster card, and the cost is capped so you can make several trips in one day.

Find out more about using contactless cards on the Transport for London website.
