Still works out cheaper if you buy a child ticket and don't take a child. Never done it, but I can't imagine someone is going to kick you off if the child isn't present.

You have paid to travel, seats are not guaranteed in the price unless you have a reservation and I'd hope if the train was full and you didn't actually have a baby that needed the space, you would put stuff on the overheads racks..

You are able to use the card with a baby as long as you buy them a ticket. I do it regularly now and have never had a issue. I found out it was allowed from the lady in our ticket office x

Copied from railcard t&c's-
If the only child in the Family & Friends Railcard group is aged under five years, the Railcard holder must purchase a discounted ticket for that child in order for the Railcard holder(s) to qualify for the discount on their tickets.
Terms and Conditions are valid up to and including 15 May 2016.
Got it, thank you!

U can I have used it with a child at 2 weeks travelling to london . its normally still cheaper and gives u a seat for them or their stuff
I'm travelling on 31st July to 1st Aug, assuming the card is valid from 1st June to 31st July will I still be able to use it? Or does it need to be valid over all the legs of the journey?
Brilliant all sorted with the code thanks
