Loads of posters in tube stations, adverts in the regional press (I saw one in the Liverpool Echo last time I was home), every ticket office person there is...

None of which would have helped you, who just wanted to travel for nothing despite not having your ticket.

My brother came to London and I just went in a newsagent and bought a pay-as-you-go Oyster card with a couple of quid charged up on it. It didn't seem that tricky.

Different places in different countries have all sorts of different ways of pricing and running their ticketing systems. They all need to be 'learnt'.

Oh, and it's an easy response for a reason!

It was my understanding that getting an Oyster card required you to register and pay a ?3 deposit for the card. I didn't realise that you could just get a card and put ?2 on it.

Unless you had to put ?3 down for it?

Paid a three quid deposit, didn't need to register. The card's there now whenever I have visitors to London Smile

You only need to fill in a form when you get monthlies and so on. The same way as you have to with paper tickets, I think - and that's so you can get a new one if you lose it, without paying again.
