Sorry about this. I thought I had this figured out. We are a family of 6: two adults, one senior and three children ages 11, 8 and 6. We plan to use the 2 for 1 for the three adults and my 11 yr old. The museum rates for the younger kids are lower for most things so its more beneficial to have one adult and one 11 yr old free on the 241 than use each adult and get 3 kids free (make sense?)
To do this, I know we have to have paper travelcards. I know where to get them. Each adult will need one and my 11 yr old will need one. We're there for 8 days so I'm getting a 7d paper travelcard each. We'll have the photos with us.
My question concerns the 6 and 8 year old. We won't be using the 241 for them.... how do they travel while we're there? Are they free (I'm thinking they aren't)? Do they get an Oyster or can we get them a 7d travelcard for a lower cost (because we don't have to buy the Oyster card itself)?
In case it makes a difference, we're also making a few trips outside the city: Windsor, Watford and Hampton Court Palace... would the type of card the younger children have make a difference when purchasing the train tickets for these outings?
I'd love any advice you're able to provide. I'm trying to make this as easy for us as possible. :-)
