Mastercard is running a very low key promotion on Friday which will get you free travel to work and back if you live or work in London.
Mastercard has announced that Friday is ‘Fare Free Friday’. To promote the new contact-less travel service on London buses, train and tube services, Mastercard will refund 100% of the contact-less charges you incur on Friday.
You must, of course, use a contact-less Mastercard credit or debit card when making your trip and pay via contact-less travel.
Full details can be found here on the Mastercard Priceless London website. Despite the ‘register now’ button on the site (which only seems to register you for the TFL website) no specific registration appears to be needed for this promotion.
Press reports suggest that this will be repeated on November 28th although I have no independent confirmation so far.
