If you live in London and regularly take the train to Gatwick Airport, we've got good news: starting today, you can use your Oyster card to travel to the station just outside departures. That applies to contactless cards and Apple Pay too, negating the need to buy a standalone ticket. Convenient, especially if you're up at the crack of dawn and want to avoid waiting for a self-service machine in the cold. (We've been there, and it's not fun.) Of course, you might get a cheaper fare by ordering a ticket online in advance. If you're poorly organised, however, or simply not fussed about saving a few pounds, this should make your next trip a little less stressful.
