To keep it simple, this is all in one day.

Paddington to Baker Street

Baker Street to Paddington

This is all on the same line - Bakerloo line - both stations in zone 1.

1 adult and 1 child (12), the tricky part - tickets.

I tried looking and baffled, an example use con-tactless card:

Use a contactless card or mobile device for adult rate pay as you go travel on all our transport services.

Guess with a child it's not possible.


Oyster Card:

You need to pay a £5 deposit for an Oyster card.

If I worked out it out right, it will be £2.40 for myself and only 75p for the child:

Wasting £6.80 left on the card.

Any other ideas? Cheers
