We are going to London in a few weeks and we have spent hours doing research into travel costs. Because we have a family car we usually drive everywhere. When myself and neil go to London we always get the train but it’s affordable because it’s only one fare when you have 4 it can soon add up. This is when we discovered the family travel card from National Railcards.
The family travel card allows a discount for up to 4 adults when travelling with up to 4 children aged 5-15. You get 1/3 off adult fares and 60% off kids fares for one of yearly cost of £30. Our London return journey has cost £116 but without the family travel card would have cost £222.
There are so many other benefits from using the travel card not just cheap train travel. I have popped some above for you. Best to see for yourself on the Family and Friends Railcard website.
We can’t wait to use our card throughout the year to see more of the UK and get to see places properly and not through a car window. You don’t have to go far you can use it to explore locally as the card is valid all over the UK.
National Railcards also do cards for – Disabled people, Senior Citizens, Students 16-25 and the two together card. You can take a look at these cards and the benefits on the National Railcards website.
Make sure you keep coming back to check on our travels and what we have been up to with recommendations of places to go and visit.
