    Firstly, a 16 year old is an adult in railway terms.

    The easiest way for the three adults is for each one to have a contactless payment card. You do need one card each though. You annot share a card when travelling. It does not have to be in the traveller's name.

    Buying a one day child's travelcard for the child is probably easiest.

    I looked up Off peak travel cards for 3 adults & 1 child on a train operating company's web site and it priced it at 47.50.
    Enter Watford High Street as the origin station and London Underground Zones 1-6 as the destination station.

    You can buy on line and collect from ticket office or ticket machine at the station, or buy from the ticket office at the station.

    If you had a Family & Friends railcard, that would have been reduced to 29.40, but the railcard costs 30. Of course the railcard is valid for a year, so if you planned any other journey within 12 months you would easily get your money back.

    With Group Save it is 33.70. The 3 adults must always travel together.
    Did you really mean to put loose?
    Lose: no longer possess, not to retain, unable to find
    Loose: not firmly or tightly fixed in place
