If your spouse/ partner has a annual season (gold) ticket, you can purchase the Network railcard for only £1 (usual cost of £20). You and up to three other adults can save 1/3 (restrictions apply Monday to Friday) while up to four children, aged 5 to 15, can save 60% on the child fare (£1 minimum fare applies). More info can be found on railcard website.

There's other benefits of a Annual season ticket, from the First capital connect FAQ website, the benefits includes :-
- 2 free complimentary tickets sent to you within four weeks of purchasing or renewing your ticket. These are valid for off peak travel and can be used to travel on any part of the First Capital Connect network
- Save a third on most off peak fares for travel within the South East
- Take up to three adults with you and they also receive the same discount or up to four children for £1.00 each

this is a good deal but also not a good deal.... only useful for people with annual season ticket or at least know someone who has one.... definitely not for me...
#2
this works out same price if you have a family railcard £20 for year
#3
I have been buying it this way for about 7 years.Really good deal.

I'm not getting this. I thought that people over the age of 26 can't get railcards? Fair enough you can get a family railcard but then you have to travel with at least one child. Or you can get old persons one but not for a long time for me.

So can I still get a railcard and travel on my own even if I'm 28?

You can get a Network Card at any age, however the term Network is very misleading as it only covers the old Network South East area, details HERE. There are peak time restrictions and a minimum £10 fare during the week.

If you are over 25 you can't get a young person's railcard. There are other options available. Good deal for commuters... voted hot

Yes you can get this railcard at your age and travel on your own; however there are restrictions when using it including:-
Valid for travel on the old Network South East rail area only (basically the south/south east of England)
£10.00 minimum fare reduction applies Monday to Friday.
If you use the trains in the south regularly particularly at Weekends this is well worth having.

I have a Family Railcard - but thats no use when I travel alone or without the kids.

Can I get one?

I can't seem to find the deal - or am I missing something? What do I have to click on?

This has been offered forever - it's a standing deal throughout the south-east. There's no age restriction as far as I'm aware... my wife's 28 and has one.

If your partner has an annual season ticket (otherwise known as a gold card), just take them, a quid and a passport photo to any manned station and request the deal.

I have a gold card, and my wife's additional card basically means that whenever me and the missus go by train to London, she gets a 1/3 off the cost of her travel. We're an hour out of London, and if we go into the city just 4 times in a month, this can saves her upwards of £20 on tickets. She can get this discount without me having to be present.

The key thing to note is that, without the £1 card, Gold Card holders can get this discount with their partner, their friends and indeed a whole family, so long as everyone is travelling accompanied by the card-holder. If the card-holder isn't there and you're holding a discount ticket (ie: if you're out shopping, split up and end up wanting to use public transport in London), you're liable to pay a penalty fare.

This is where the £1 card is good - the Gold Card holder doesn't need to be present for a family member to get the 1/3 off. Essential when I'm working in London and my wife is coming to meet me after work. She can just turn up at the station with her card and get the discount without me needing to be there.

I know my uncle who got Gold Card. Can i still be eligible to get one?. I can get my uncle to the station to get my Rail card fro 1pound. I am 26 years old.

Thanks in Advance
