Is it possible to extend or change the dates of my pass?

We recognise that many customers bought their passes well in advance of travel, and many attractions are temporarily closed due to COVID-19.

As an added benefit, you can even choose a different city to sightsee from the passes in our group. Find out more.
Do I have to make reservations for attractions?
Certain attractions will require a reservation. If this is the case, you will find all booking information listed on our reservations page and the individual attraction pages on our website and app. Some advance reservations will require a pass number or order reference number to secure your booking. This will not activate your pass.

How does the Oyster Card work when you have The London Pass® + Travelcard?
The Oyster Card is an electronic travelcard designed to facilitate journeys across London on the extensive transport network. The Oyster Card will come pre-charged with a credit value respective to your London Pass® duration and can be used at any time of day, any day of the week.
Your Oyster Card can be used on public buses, the underground network as well as overground trains, and the DLR. The Oyster Card will never expire so it makes a great investment if you plan on coming to London in the future.
To find out more about Oyster Travelcard, click here.
When and where can I use the Oyster Card?
The Oyster Card can be used across all buses, tubes, overground trains, and the DLR. It can be used any time and any day the public transport networks are running. To find out more about opening times of the London transport network, visit the Transport for London website.
You can use your Oyster Card without activating your London Pass® – as your pass will only become activated at first use at an attraction.
Can I use The London Pass® to get to and from the airport?
If you have your order shipped to you before you travel and you fly into Heathrow Airport then you can use your Oyster Travelcard on the London Underground to travel into central London. The Oyster Travelcard would also cover use on the DLR trains from London City Airport as well. Using your Oyster Card to travel into Central London from Gatwick will incur a higher charge (up to £19.80 one-way on the Gatwick Express, for example) so we would advise against using it from this airport.
The Travelcard doesn’t cover transport to and from Luton Airport and Stansted Airports.
Can I buy The London Pass® + Travelcard anywhere?
No, The London Pass® + with Travelcard can only be purchased online in advance.
Will the Oyster Card activate my London Pass®?
The London Pass® will only become activated after first use at an attraction. So you can start using your Oyster Card independently of The London Pass® and continue to use your Oyster Card after your London Pass® has expired if you are staying in the city longer.
How do you define a Child London Pass® (+ Travel)?
Children under 11 years of age can travel for free on London Transport with an Adult holding a valid Oyster Card. Children between 11 – 15 with London Pass + Travel Package will receive Daily/Weekly Paper Visitor Travelcards.
What is the £5 admin fee on the Oyster Travelcard package?
The £5 admin charge is a fee added on by Transport for London to cover the cost of producing the Oyster Cards. This is a non-refundable fee that is unavoidably added to every Oyster Travelcard order.
It does mean that the card is yours forever as you do not have to return the card after use or throw it away. Providing the Oyster Card has credit, it can be used at a later date as the card never expires.
If my child (under 11) doesn't need a travelcard or Oyster Card, how will they get through the barriers?
Children under 11 can travel on the London Transport network for free, accompanied by an adult holding a valid Oyster Card. Please go to the wider gates at the side where a member of staff can let you through without a ticket.
Can I store my luggage somewhere while using my London Pass®?
Stasher has locations across the world where you can store your bag while you explore the city. Exclusive to passholders only, bookings can be made online here, and use the code LONDONPASS for 15% off.
