Default Oyster Auto Top Up at Gatwick Airport

I was at Gatwick Aiport on Monday 23rd July and went to use my Oyster to
take the train home. I have a Zone 1-3 annual travelcard on it, plus auto
top up enabled. My balance on auto top up is ??13.55.

When I touched my Oyster on the reader, it wouldn't let me through and
said "please top up". I tried a number of gates and still got this
message, so I ended up having to use a contactless debit card.

Does anyone know why this would have happened? Do you need more than ??13
on the card to get through the gate at Gatwick?

seems that peak time, the answer is yes


Given that you've got auto-topup enabled surely it should Just Work and
do an auto-topup if you've not got enough on the card!

When I had an Oyster with auto top-up it acted only when the balance was
below £10.
