Hi all. I've read some threads concerning oyster vs travelcards and want to quickly run my plan by you to see if it would be the smartest:

the scenario: we'll be in London for 4 days and want the 2 for 1 discounts for Churchill War rooms, Westminster abbey, etc. so my plan was to get the week-long travelcard for the both of us. My dilemna was the trip into London from Heathrow however (we're fine w/ the Piccadilly line btw). Someone in another thread mentioned buying a PAYGO oyster upon arrival and putting some money on it for the trip to our hotel. Since we'll only be there 7 days i'm wondering if it would be smarter to do a couple of daily travel cards for 4 days instead & oyster for the others? whichever way saves us more money because if we went with the 7 day travelcards we'd be looking at about $91USD just for transportation for 4 days. thanks
