Depends on how much travelling around you intend to do. Travelcard/tube will be a cheaper option if making several trips per day.

The best way would be to buy National Rail Travelcards. You then have unlimited travel on London's tubes and buses, etc. In addition, you can take advantage of the 2-4-1 offers.

You would need two cabs and that would get very expensive. Also you might get separated.

You definitely want some kind of public transport ticket, but whether that's Oyster PAYG or travelcards depends on how long you're here for. You wouldn't all fit in one taxi, so taking taxis everywhere would not be remotely cost-effective.

Black cabs are usually only licensed to take 5 passengers, and even that would be a struggle if they're carrying luggage. In any case, you wouldn't want a black cab from the airport to your accommodation - it's the most expensive way to get there. Pre-book a car service - there are lists of reputable and well-reviewed car services on this forum if you type "car service" into the search facility.
