England help- National Rail, Travelcards and Oyster

Jump to last reply

I have been trying to figure out the least expensive way to get around while I am in London in April. Most travel guides lay out what works best for people when traveling in London only, and I have an extra leg that seems to be complicating things. After using trusty old Google and getting more confused, I realize I need help from real people!

I will be taking the train from Chichester to London/Victoria on a Sunday. Monday through Friday I will be mainly in zones 1-2 in London like most tourists, but may want to venture out further (haven't set the itinerary just yet). On Saturday, I will take the tube from London to Heathrow (zone 6) to depart. After looking at the National Rail website for the Chichester to London leg, it says they accept Travelcards. If I buy a 7 day Travelcard for all zones, will that cover me from Sunday in Chichester all the way through Saturday heading out to Heathrow? Is it better to buy my Chichester to London ticket separately, then use the Oyster card after that?

I thank you all in advance, I seem to be spinning my wheels on the logistics!
