Alternatively, give us a call and we will post your Coachcard out to you (£2.50 p&p will be added to your purchase).You can also purchase Coachcards from one of our ticket outlets.
Having an Oyster card as an app would also allow to top it up easier.
Don't forget to carry your Coachcard with you whenever you travel, along with your ticket and proof of age.
* You'll save a guaranteed 1/3 off Standard and Fully Flexible fares throughout the UK for 12 months (or 36 months with a three-year card.) With the Young Persons Coachcard, there are no restrictions on peak and off peak travel times, so you can travel whenever it suits you.
Which will give many more options when it comes to zoning (atm Oyster is limited in how many zones TFL can have) and capping (it should enable the 7 day capping that you get with Contactless) etc.
I've been using my Contactless since moving to London two years ago, the daily £6.80 cap has come in handy plenty of times when I've had days where I've felt like I've lived on the tube That's interesting to hear about the oyster card phase-out.
