    I'm travelling to London tomorrow, arriving at City airport. I've been loaned an Oyster card to use on the DLR/Underground. I'll connect at Bank to the Central Line. I know I have to wave my Oyster when I get on the DLR at City, but do I need to wave out from DLR and wave back in to the Underground at Bank? - or can I / do I leave it until I leave the Underground (at Holborn). I'm going to be travelling at 0830-0845 which I assume is going to be peak of the peak rush hour.

    Any Londoners advice would be appreciated!!! Even from deepest, darkest Kent!

    You should be able to change at Bank and not have to "tap out" until you get to Holborn. The Oyster terminals are at the exit barriers. All of the platforms for the various lines at Bank are inside the barrier - albeit some are quite a trek - such that you won't need to use your Oyster card until you complete your whole journey and leave the system at your final TfL destination. Once you've tapped in, just remember not to tap out again until you want to leave the system and get back out on to the street.

    Have a good journey.
    Regards,

    Steve

    In a way since I'm returning to civilisation on the 1620 to Geneva, absolutely!

    Why do you ask?

    Steve - thanks. The last time I took the DLR it was diverted from Bank to London Bridge, and that isn't connected to anything else! Is there a minimum amount you can have left on an Oyster? I've got 5.15 and I think I'm going to get charged the Maximum daily rate of 4.85 leaving just 0.30.

    That shouldn't be a problem.

    Thanks Steve & Stuart.
    Everything went smoothly as you said. John will be pleased to know that I have vacated British soil, never to return - that is until next time, which will be next Saturday as we stopover enroute to spending Christmas in the frozen West of Canada.

    Our plans have us flying out on BA to Vancouver on the 21st - the day their cabin crew have decided to down tools. Never a dull moment with those guys ...

    No, no - that's up by east anglia. If Nathan's had it, it's probably shrunk in the tyne.

    Tyne? That's up North, isn't it? I thought Nathan was in Wales...

    Minor detail

    (I know what his current status refers to... - so no mentioning those from Wearside...)

    I wasn't aware that soil could be vacated, but you have the edge on me there!
    And cabin crew might have downed trolleys, or perhaps the small bottles of spirits thereon displayed...
