When you use contactless or Oyster to pay as you go, there is a maximum amount of time that you can spend making a single journey on Tube, DLR, London Overground, TfL Rail and National Rail.
If you spend longer than the maximum journey time for your journey, you could be charged 2 maximum fares.
Please wait at least 48 hours as you might receive an automatic refund:
If you do not get an automatic refund, you have up to 8 weeks from your journey to claim.
We will not give a refund if you have already claimed 3 maximum fare refunds in the same calendar month.
