Do under 5's need to present a train ticket when using 2 for 1? Merlin attractions charge from the age of 3 or 4.

Thanks anyway - appreciated.

Saved me an absolute fortune last time I went to London this! Don't forget also, if you've got a railcard, you can apply your discount to your oyster card at the train stations, makes the credit last a bit longer

Have to admit though that at Madame Tussauds they weren't that interested in looking at the train tickets - but that could be down to the individual etc.Specific terms for Drayton Manor say one ticket per person to Birmingham or the attraction destination.Suggest you print the terms off and check the details - when the kids have quietened down ;-) . You can print off the vouchers at no cost and with no commitment.

Thanks to the OP.

Would I be able to get this deal with an underground day pass?

Does it have to be the day of travel cause I'll be going over for 3 days next week but will I be able to use them on any of the 3 days?

Yes it was the normal one day travelcard, I bought the travel day cards zones 1-4 from the TFL website red card (link in my first post) as i was going to be staying in a travelodge near kew gardens. They sent me the cards through the post. If you go to the TFL website there is a zones map showing what areas are covered so you can then decide which zone card you need. Hope this helps.

I wonder if it works the other way round as well? I mean with a return rail ticket starting from London.

I'm picking a friend from the airport, I'll go there via rail but we'll return by coach (late evening arrival, no trains back).



I used this voucher this weekend and they didn't even ask to see the train tickets

The journey needs to start outside the TfL pricing zones, I assume that means it has to start somewhere outside from London. In this case there is not really a point in trying use this offer when just arriving in London by plane, a bit a shame though. I guess such a return from outside of London will cost at least 5 quid, so not worth the effort.

National Rail issued tickets include Off-Peak, Super Off-Peak, Travelcard, Advance, Anytime and Season Tickets.If you are travelling on Advance tickets or similar, please ask to keep both inbound and return legs of the tickets, when arriving at your destination station. In cases where electronic ticket barriers are in operation, you should approach a member of the train company staffs who can arrange for you to retain your tickets as proof of travelling by train.London Underground issued tickets (including Travelcards) are NOT valid and will not be accepted at any attraction.

just found your web site fantastic, need to travel to Hastings from London bridge 2 adults, both with oyster cards, would we still only pay £5.00 return

Just be aware that Virgin trains aren't participating so if heading to the north you may need to use the stopping services.

So to get to Crewe and beyond, I got a refund on my oyster journey which would have cost £30 after addons, and bought a £63 standard return. Gets me there in 90 mins rather than 240, but more critically means I can stay as late as I need to on Sunday. The cheap deal just didn't work for me.

Not been caught out by the small print for years on a deal, but I don't think it was particularly clear about excluded trains particularly when using a "National Rail" logo rather than individual operators. Am 90 minutes older now, and a bit wiser!
