Gives you about 33% off fares. If you use the trains often it's a no brainer, mine pays for itself within 3 short journeys.
Great deal at £24

Do they ever ask for ID for journeys? So would this be effectively transferable (altho against T&Cs of course)

Thought this was going to be a winner, then noticed you HAVE to travel with a child... might look a bit weird if I try and borrow one on the train...

they've never asked me for ID on journeys. but when you buy, you put your own name on the card and can also choose one other lead adult, so my brother and I share one card. only problem is not booking trips on the same dates! it also gives 66% off kid fares, as well as 33% off adult fares, including off peak, advance, etc.

Two together card is worth looking at, if you travel often with the same person, have no kids, and are in between all the other cards.

T+C's state you must have at least one adult and one child on the journey...?

I have renewed my Family & Friends railcard for the last few years around this time and there is usually a £10 off code knocking around - I've never paid more than £20 for the card. Just wondering if this is going to be the best offer this time...

How does this work exactly? How do they enforce the rules of having to have a child with you when you use your Oyster card at the ticket barrier?

Yes, at least one child must always be in the party for this to be used.
#18
Can the code be applied on 3yrs validity card (3 yrs for £70)? Mine expires in couple of weeks time. Is the offer available for existing customers too (renewals) or just new ones?

They don't unless they stop you to look, or if an inspector comes along on the train. It clearly says Friends and Family on the ticket so they'll ask to see both your discount card (which you have to have with you) and they'll look for a child as part of the group. I suppose you could buy a child ticket as they're so cheap that you'll probably still get a good discount!

For those asking why they need to have a child with them, this card is Not for you.!

We take our son to GOSH regularly and it's cheaper to buy two adults and a child than two adults, even though he doesn't need a ticket yet. The sad part is if we used the disabled ticket it's even more expensive off peak!

I know, I'm luckily enough I have 2.

We do the same at least twice a year with my son. Looking at booking the next set of tickets and total of around 40% discount. Wish I did this 5 years ago. over £24 saved in one journey

Unlike me, please give the T&C's the once over. You cannot use the railcard on trains before 9.30 am. Not worth it, if you are travelling on a reasonable long journey i.e. Newcastle - Kings Cross)and would like to be there before lunchtime. However, it would be applicable on the return journey.

Time Restrictions:

Morning off-peak services vary by route, so it's a good idea to check before buying your tickets.

Mine just expired last week, looking at a different card. Not sure about anyone else but I know before when I put it through the ticket machine at the barrier, it's never let me through. I've had to show the person manning the gate. Luckily I always had a child

I noticed as well at the end of the transaction they give you a discount code for a £20 discount of a YHA family membership so only £10 ATOCJF-13 was the code I got so probably universal if anyone missed it.

That's interesting? I've been told at a station in Horwich that it cannot be used at peak time? So is this only a rule within London?

stokerej said 'You cannot use the railcard on trains before 9.30 am.' which is inaccurate and incorrect. Peak times vary between stations, for example Wakefield can be off-peak before 7am. Details of when the card can be applied are on the website.
