Can you travel to Gatwick Airport using Oyster or Contactless?

No, you can’t. If you try to visit this London airport using Transport for London’s Oyster or Contactless payments, you’ll find a line of ticket inspectors waiting to fine you – and everyone else who makes the same mistake – £20.

Plus you’ll get charged a maximum fare on Oyster or Contactless for not ending your journey.

And that’s despite the Gatwick website saying that both have been valid since 2014.

So, watch out. It’s a nasty setup.
