Contactless payment on buses

We are now able to pay by cards enabled with NFC – but what are the chances of paying multiple fares?

TfL warned Oyster card users in an email that they should take care when swiping their wallet against readers if they own more than one NFC-enabled card. “If you present two cards together, the reader will normally reject them both,” said TfL. “But there is a small possibility of payment being taken from a card which you did not intend to use.”
