Normally if I add the photocard to my existing Oyster card, they don’t charge me anything else as I’m spending £10.90 on buying a Bus & Tram Pass, so had to spend £5 on the deposit, £1.50 on PAYG and £10.90 for a 7 day pass.

Don’t get me wrong, the local newsagent is one of the few retailers that know how to use the terminals for more than just standard PAYG/travelcard transactions and were very helpful in resolving my issue after my other card failed this week.

I wish there was a way where discounts could be associated with a contactless card than having to use Oyster when it comes to things like this as I already use Contactless for rail journeys.
