How It Works

The London Pass works like a credit card with a chip inside. You just show your card to get into the tourist attractions covered by the card. They swipe it through the card reader, and you are set to go. This also eliminates the need to carry cash.

As for transportation, if the bus isn’t your ideal mode of transportation, you can choose to purchase an optional Travelcard that will cover all your transport needs.
