Stephanie on Travel to London, England – Episode 813:

Great episode! I’ve been to London 6 occasions and am going again in September. I nonetheless discovered some new issues to try after I go.
However, one factor she mentioned I’d like to make a suggestion: Using a debit card vs. getting an Oyster card. You have to have a contactless debit card, and you’ve got to be sure that it does not cost you international transaction charges. My card will not be contactless, and I do get hit with FTF each time I take advantage of it, so I’ll proceed to use an Oyster card after I go.

all the very best, Stephanie
