I don`t expect many of you young mums by Family Circle magazine, I do because its soooooo brill for offers. In this months mag (June) there is a really good offer, three months free family railcard and when they send it to you they will also give you a £5 voucher towards the purchase of a new one, so £15 for a card to last a year, got to be good! Mines already in the post!

Here's the restriction bit....annoying about the 'wholly within London bit!'. I worked out that my sister (in Herts) can get to and travel around London cheaper than I can just because she lives outside London and I live in London!
'The Railcard discount isn't available on tickets when journeys are made wholly within the London and SouthEast area (including all South West Trains services to and from London Waterloo) on morning peak period services, Monday to Friday (not including Public Holidays).
The times of morning off-peak services do vary by route and are normally related to the availability of Cheap Day tickets. It's best to check with the ticket office staff before buying tickets.'

you can buy family travel cards to get round London tho FIS which are really cheap. Its cheaper for dp to buy a family travelcard as his fare si discounted and dds fare is 80p rather than him to buy a full price travel card and dd to go free IYSWIM. and you dont need a family railcard for taht either.
