  1. Thanks for this. I used to have an “older version” Oyster card, and I couldn’t top up online with this app, but I’ve swapped it to a “new” Oyster card that can be topped up online. It’s great, as I don’t live in London, but I can check my balance and top up before I visit. Happy days!

    Hope this helps 😉
