Details

 A Family & Friends Railcard costs £30 and it'll save you 1/3 on adult fares and 60% on kids’ fares throughout Great Britain for a whole year.

The discount applies to all Standard, Anytime, off-Peak and Advance fares and whats more, up to four adults and four children can travel on one card, and they don't even need to be related. Take a look at all the ticket types you can make savings on with a Family & Friends Railcard.

The card can be issued in the name of two adults, so that when one named person can’t use it, the other one can, as long as there is at least one child over the age of five travelling. See our eligibility criteria for more information.

There are plenty of ways you can use your Railcard, for both long and short trips. Better still you can use it almost anytime on weekends, public holidays and during the week. The only restriction is morning peak period services, Monday to Friday (not including public holidays) when journeys are made wholly within the London and South East area. See Time Restrictions for more details.

Your Railcard also allows you to take advantage of our great partner offers, giving you exclusive discounts across the UK.  See our offers section for all the latest partner offers.

Now you can also buy a 3-year Family & Friends Railcard, available only online. It’s great value at £70, saving you an extra £20 on the cost of renewing your 1-year Railcard for three consecutive years.
