Travel cards vs. Oyster for a family with young kids

Jump to last reply

Hello, Heading to London in 2 weeks with a family of 5-- 2 adults and a 15, 11, and 5 yr old. We are flying in from Naples to Gatwick, planning to get the Group Save round trip tickets on Southern Railway into London. We want to get the 2 for 1 coupons!

We will be staying in an apartment near DLR Royal Victoria. Is this within zones 1-6?

We arrive on a Monday afternoon and depart on Saturday morning, so we have Monday evening, and 4 full days(Tues-Friday). I keep seeing mention of 3 day travel cards but do not see them listed as an option. We also would like to travel to Canterbury and possibly Oxford and Stonehenge.

Please advise on the Oyster cards vs. travel cards as to which would be cheaper for our family.

Also, are the 2 for 1 a better deal than the family ticket rates at the attractions? Thank you SO much for any help you can provide sorting this all out.
