2-4-1 Travelcards

Yes, yet another American who isn't quite getting the 2-4-1 travelcard thing, even though I've read the articles. From what I understand, it will be clearer when we get there, but I have a couple of questions. Do I need to print the vouchers out at home, or will we be able to get a booklet at the station (I think I read that someone was able to get one there). Also, do we need to bring the 2x3 photos from home, or can they take photos there? And, lastly, if I'm staying in Chelsea, where is the nearest rail station where I'll be able to purchase the paper travelcard?

Probably best to print off vouchers at home in case there are no booklets at the station.

Print photos at home (note: the photos are not 2X3), see this: https:/…edit

See this for location of stations: https:/…edit

Thank you so much--did it! So I guess we'll have to pay for individual fares when we take the tube to the nearest rail station to purchase the travelcards.

Just one person needs to go to the rail station (of course have everyone's photo with you).

Where are you staying? Are you taking a car service from the airport or are you using the tube?

We're staying in Chelsea. I was planning on using a car service from the aiport. Didn't really want to deal with the tube after an overnight flight and four people with all of our luggage.

Where in Chelsea, please, a street or road name is needed to help identify the nearest rail station for paper Travelcard purchase.
