    Hi Everyone,

    I have just accepted a new role in London and will need to get from Shoreham By Sea to Holloway Road underground station.

    I have an Easit card from my previous employer that gets me 15% off (Saving £424 annually) from Shoreham to East Croydon so I figure if I do that and then get a zone 1-5 Oyster Card season ticket I will have the journey covered.

    I'm not sure regarding touching in though so wanted some advice on that - is it really as simple as using my annual return to Croydon at the start of my journey then using the Oyster card at Victoria and on the tube and vice versa?

    Thanks a lot,

    Russ

    Welcome to the forum,

    As long as the Oyster card contains a travelcard and the train you are on stops at East Croydon then you will be fine.

    Is the Easit card still valid if you no longer work for that company?

    It seems to be having left my previous employer in August 2012 and using it for my most recent role...
