Cheapest way to travel on tube

There will be 3 adults in London in August for 4 days what is the cheapest way to travel please? We will only use the tube and only zones 1-2. Day travel cards look like they are £8.80 each per day. Is there a cheaper way to do it?

If you aren't going to use 241 deals, oyster might be fractionally cheaper depending upon your travel patterns. Or a 7 day travelcard might be fractionally cheaper again depending upon travel patterns.

But the difference between them all is peanuts. Buy one latte in Starbucks and it won't matter.

You would only pay £8.80 for a travelcard if you wish to use it before 9.30 on a weekday. The off-peak zone 1-2 travel card is £7.30. This enables you to travel any time after 9.30 during a weekday and all day at weekends and bank holidays.

How are you travelling to London? And are you wanting to use the offers on daysoutguide.com

If you are travelling by train and want to use the offers then Oystercard PAYG will work for 4 days (just retain the train tickets when you reach St Pancras so don't go through automatic barriers)

If you aren't travelling by train and don't want to use the offers then Oystercard PAYG will work for 4 days.

Otherwise if you want to use the offers get 1 day Travelcards from a train, not Tube, station

Otherwise just use Oystercard PAYG.
