Will a RFID blocking wallet allow me to use my oyster card without taking it out of my wallet?

Only an RFID shielded wallet that is specifically designed to work with the oyster card will allow you to use your oyster card with out taking it out of your wallet. Most RFID shielded or RFID blocking wallets will block all your cards including your oyster card. So you won’t be able to simply touch your wallet on a card reader and have it read your oyster card. MGB wallets have solved the problem by developing special wallets that protect you credit and debit cards from being read by a card reader, but still allow you to touch your wallet on the card reader and read your oyster card without taking it out of your wallet.

special-travel-card-pocketCheck out our range of RFID blocking and shielded wallets. All of our wallets have a special travel card pocket that stops card clash but give you the convenience of not having to take your oyster card out of your wallet to travel. Brilliant!

MGB Wallets were designed to work with the oyster card. They have been tested extensively to ensure that they work properly to open the gates on the London Underground network. They have also been tested on the ticket machine so you don’t even have to take your oyster card out of your wallet to top up your oyster card. If you don’t have an oyster card and normally travel with a contactless debit or credit card, good news. You can put the card you use to travel with, into the travel card pocket and use it just like an oyster card with no chance of card clash.

The travel card pocket in our wallets is the only pocket that can be read from an oyster card reader, every thing else in the wallet is completely protected and shielded from RFID signals. Once you use a MGB wallet you’ll love it!
