Cheap Oyster Travelcard

Cheap Oyster travelcards?” No, just one travelcard.

My current place of employment were nice enough to give me a company loan cheque to buy an annual Oyster travelcard, and then took a slice of the loan out of my salary every month, to pay it back, interest free. However, back in August, when I bought my annual Zones 1 and 2 travelcard, I was unaware that by the 5th of February, I would be relocating back to Gibraltar and the south of Spain, so now I have a good few hundred quid’s worth of soon to be useless Oyster travelcard in my wallet.

The remaining balance of the loan was £604, which, given there are 30 weeks left until it expires, works out at £20.13 for a weekly travelcard “equivalent”, compared to the standard £25.80. Would be happy to let it go for less than the balance as I’m just trying to recoup some of the money to put towards relocating.
