What are the advantages of the 5-10 ZIP Oyster photocard?

With the 5-10 ZIP Oyster photocard, children from 5 to 10 years old benefit:


  • free for their journeys by bus, tram, metro and train
  • 50% discounted adult fare for Thames Clipper River bus services
  • the child rate for their journeys with:
    • Southeastern trains (between St Pancras International and Stratford International stations)
    • the Gatwick Express
    • Southern and Thameslink trains (between Coulsdon South station and Gatwick airport)
    • Emirates Air Line cable car

This card makes a different noise than the classic Oyster card at the pointing terminals. By traveling with a ZIP Oyster photocard that is not yours you risk a £80 fine + cancellation of rights and a withdrawal of the card for the real subscriber.

The subscription to the ZIP Oyster photocard is done only through the Internet.
