It's not a problem. Just checked the website; the T&Cs state the following:

Eligibility
If the only child in the Family & Friends Railcard group is aged less than five years of age, the Railcard holder must purchase a discounted ticket for that child in order for the accompanying adult(s) to qualify for the discount on their tickets.


Normally they would travel free being under-5, but the extra you pay for their ticket (cheap in the first place, but discounted by 60% as well) is far out-weighed by the 33% discount on your adult tickets. :)

Can this be used for online purchases? :thinking:

It should be. As far as I'm aware it functions as a normal railcard, and I buy tickets online using my 16-25 railcard all the time - no need for a reference number or anything. Although when buying in person it's highly likely the member of staff would ask to see your card, the really important bit is having it with you when you travel. Your tickets will be the same whether you buy them at the station or online.

Just select 'Family and Friends Railcard' in the 'Railcards and other discounts' box on the booking page. The quantity is the number of cards, not the number of passengers it will apply to...this will automatically be worked out when you enter the numbers of passengers.

So...at some point during the booking process there'll be an area looking something like one of the following:

Note only 1 railcard, and the 5 adults is deliberate :thumbsup:. When you click through to the different ticket options, each with its own price, clicking on a price will show discounted and normal tickets listed as so (note that 4 of the adults and the child have their tickets discounted, whereas the 5th adult is quoted normal price, because only 4 adults are allowed maximum per railcard)

http://img93.imageshack.us/img93/7748/railcard2.png

If there is likely to be a group of 4+ adults travelling, and there is more than one child, simply get a railcard per child. Think of it this way: 1 railcard + 1 child = 4 discounted adults, so 2 railcards + 2 children = 8 discounted adults. Even with 2 children travelling, if you only have one railcard, you'll only get 4 discounted adult tickets.

So...by changing it to 2 children AND 2 railcards, the 5th (6th, 7th & 8th) adult will also get the discount:

you only need to have a child with you they can be 1 day old and you get the discount.People use the card with babies so they can have an extra seat.
#36

#37
when you get it you can add another adult on it and not just you can use it but they can too. i just used my friens yesterday and saved twelve pound
