Which is the cheapest way to travel in London?
You can buy tickets which cover you for bus journeys only, which are cheaper than tickets for the underground. However, an underground ticket is more useful because it can also be used on buses and overground rail trains (within the zones you have paid for). Be careful to pay for travel in all of the zones you want to travel through. If you do not and an inspector gets on, you will be fined.
Trains and coaches outside London
Coaches are a lot cheaper than trains, but usually take longer to reach their destination. Student discounts are available on both.
