Does anyone know if this is worth getting with an 18 month old i.e you get the discount even if you don't pay for a ticket for them?

Thanks Nora, just got mine! Brilliant offer smile

TooTicky Mon 14-Jul-08 14:37:10

Yes Tatty33, it is worth it.

TooTicky Mon 14-Jul-08 14:38:03

You still buy the child a ticket, but it works out cheaper than one adult travelling alone.

Thanks Nora! Brilliant timing as ds is five on Friday so we have to start paying. AND the YHA membership will come in jolly handy.

tatty33 Mon 14-Jul-08 19:53:08

Thanks Tooticky, will try and get one now

Thanks for this Nora, I've now got my family railcard and my YHA membership through - bargain!

If you buy a ticket for 18mo you get a reserved seat for them too. Better than having them sit on your lap for 4 hours, especially with 3 or 4 year olds.

I've just ordered one. How long do they take to come through??

MarsLady Fri 18-Jul-08 10:49:56

The great thing is that once you have one (via these promotions) they keep giving you good deals on them when you renew. smile

Purplepillow Sat 19-Jul-08 10:22:48

Omg my railcard has arrived this morningshock

I cannot believe how fast it has been, even faster than the trainswinkgrin

edam Sat 19-Jul-08 10:24:25

I've got my railcard and YHA membership now, so thank you, Nora! Very grateful as dh has been off work sick since before Christmas so I didn't think we would manage to get away this year (although I was lucky enough to win a weekend away the organisers are being arses and haven't sorted it out yet).

Just getting this in Threads I'm On...

I got a Family Railcard as soon as ds was born, and always get him a ticket - it's cheaper even with one adult but definitely with two, as you save more on your own ticket than you pay for the child, and travelling with dp we can now get 3 of the 4 seats round a table if we book in time. Also railcard discounts are now available on even Apex fares, they didn't used to be, we've just brought DS to see my mum for £30.40 London to Leeds return (2 adults, one 14 month old), whereas two adult tickets at that rate would have cost over £40.

If you don't have kids at the moment and live in the south east, you might be able to get discounts on off peak journeys for you (and adult(s) travelling with you on the same journey) with a Network Railcard - dp's one for visiting his mum in Norfolk cost £20 last year and it saves nearly £10 a return day trip (a third) so long as he sets out after 10 am.
