5 -10 Zip Oyster photocard

If your child is under the age of 11, they can travel free on most TfL and some National Rail services. They may need a 5-10 Zip Oyster photocard to travel free or at child rate. 

Your child only needs a 5-10 Zip Oyster photocard to travel free on Tube, DLR, London Overground and most National Rail services if:

  • they're travelling without an adult; or
  • they look older than 10.

Your child doesn't need an Oyster photocard:

  • to travel free on buses and trams;
  • to buy child-rate cash single and return tickets or Day Travelcards; or
  • if they're with an adult who has a valid ticket, Freedom Pass, 60+ London or Veterans Oyster photocard, or who is using pay as you go (up to four children per adult).

For full details, visit the TFL website.  A parent or guardian must apply on their behalf. You can apply online or at a Post Office in London.
