With a Veterans Oyster photocard you can travel free on bus, Tube, tram, DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail and most National Rail services in London.
You may be eligible for a Veterans Oyster photocard if you're:
- Receiving ongoing payments - in your name - under the War Pensions Scheme: this includes widows, widowers and dependants
- Receiving Guaranteed Income Payment under the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme - in your name: this includes widows, widowers and dependants
Ongoing payments are awarded to service personnel who have sustained a certain level of physical or psychological injury in the line of duty. If you received a one-off gratuity payment instead of ongoing payments, then you're not eligible for a Veterans Oyster photocard
