I own an Oyster card and it is associated with my Oyster online account only in order to check my travel history. I also manage contactless cards on my existing Oyster account. There is currently an outstanding balance but no auto topup.

I want to give this physical card, with its balance, to a friend. I want my friend to be able to register the card on the new account to access the travel history in the future and/or apply for partial journeys etc. Personally, I don't even care about making him available my own travel history for that Oyster card.

How can he/she transfer ownership of the card to his/her own new account?

  • I expect you'll have to talk to TFL: either call them or use their contact form. – Rup Sep 6 '18 at 12:33
  • Do you have auto top-up set up on the card? – Traveller Sep 6 '18 at 12:50

    Can you update the details of your existing account with your friend’s name etc and then set up a new account in your own name? – Traveller Sep 6 '18 at 13:35
  • @Traveller it works as soon as I delete my existing contactless cards and transfer them to the new account in my name – usr-local-ΕΨΗΕΛΩΝ Sep 6 '18 at 13:48

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because I succeeded in having the card refunded, thus I don't need any more to transfer the card – usr-local-ΕΨΗΕΛΩΝ Jan 27 at 11:08
