    Applying for a 60+oyster photocard

    Applying for a 60+oyster photocard 4th Jan 18 at 5:20 PM
    I will be applying for a 60+ oyster photocard shortly I cannot do it online as I do not have a credit card to pay the admin fee online so I will be applying in the Post Office where I can pay over the counter


    I understand the process only for one step that is you need to provide a verification letter that you download I guess from the website that deals with the 60+ card


    My question is what is this verification letter ? is it step 2 when you apply online and provide your personal details ?

    If you don't have all this information you can still apply online but may be asked to:

    Download and print off a verification letter and take it to a post office in London with proof of your age and address
    Pay the £20 admin fee at a post office
    Send us a passport-size photo of yourself in the post

    Apply online and when it comes to the point asking about debit/credit card, download and print the verification letter, take it to the post office with ID documents where you live and who you are then pay the bloke behind the counter your £20 and send a photo to the issuing company.

    Assuming you have a bank account, is there any reason why you can't have a debit card? How do you top up your existing Oyster card?
    It would save you a lot of unnecessary effort.
    No free lunch, and no free laptop

    You can top-up an ordinary Oyster Card using cash at most newsagents.
