oyster shells

 A friend has noticed that her PAYG Oyster card often runs down the credit she puts into it very very quickly and that reminded me that I very often have had  this happen to me -when you get through the gate the  machine charges you maximum amount for your journey;  it is supposed to credit you back the difference when you check out at the destination but in my experience it very often doesn't. If you use Oyster PAYG (these days I tend to buy weekly tickets) it is a good idea to check at the ticket machines at your destination that you have not been overcharged. All too often the gate will beep and let you through but it won't have registered and you will be charged too much for your journey. It's worth checking out.
