Best transit pass for 9 day stay?

I will be in London for 9 days, traveling mostly within zones 1-2, but with a few trips to zone 3. Is it possible to purchase an Oyster card to use during the first 2 days then add a 7 day Travelcard (for Zones 1-3) on to the Oyster card???

Assuming I is 'I' and not 'we' just get a 7 day zone 1-2 Travelcard loaded on an Oystercard and add £15 cash to cover travel on the other two days plus out of zone use

'a few trips to zone 3' suggests that it might be worth you buying a zone 1-3 seven-day travelcard rather than a zone 1-2 - the price difference is only £5.20.

And yes, you can load this on to an Oyster card together with some pay-as-you-go cash for the other two days.

Good advice. There are actually 2 of us travelling together for the 9 days. Does that change your recommendation?
