It's saying it's not live when I go to use it


Well you'll need to have stashed £15+ worth of clubcard vouchers by then, and the rewards are on the Tesco Clubcard site... https://secure.tesco.com/clubcard/boost/family-friends-railcard/UK-002022.prd


I already ordered the Railcard but I have £1.50 clubcard voucher how can I benefit if I wanted to buy another for next time


Tip: If you have some Tesco Clubcard £ you can use it to buy Railcards - typically at double-value/"half-price" ie £30 card for £15 Clubcard, although clearly this HUKD 20% saving to £24 makes the Tesco deal less attractive, and also you can use the Clubcard at triple value on rail travel via redspottedhanky (albeit with a £1 per booking fee).


It'll be posted to you.

I don’t know you would have to look at the small print. Worth keeping anyway if you have a credit balance to earn interest on. Also good free overdraft facility.


After getting the railcard can i close the santander account and switch to another student account to get other benefits?


Same thing happened to me this year didn’t appeal but very strange and don’t get why I kept getting declined


Yes, almost certainly (embarrassed)


They deliberately waited until you left. What did you do to upset them?

Might come around again. Sign up to visa offers. They send new ones every 2 weeks. I think this one expired on the 25th or 26th


Has this definitely expired now. Annoyingly I put in for a credit card 2 weeks ago and it still hasn't arrived. My season ticket expires on Monday.


I got it on the 12th June about 4 days after I made the transaction.


@abuhaneefahali How many days does this take to show up on your account after the cleared payment.


Partner is with HSBC but doesn't seem to have this under her offers. Is this account specific?

Use a 16-25 railcard at peak times in July and August
31/08/2018Expires on 31/08/2018Found 15th JunFound 15th Jun

Is this deal active? Doesnt save me a thing on my daily commutes during peak time and I have a 16-25 rail card attched to my oyster.


I wasn't using Trainline because they charge booking fees and I can only speak about my experience that happened in 2015. Since then, the fare has risen above the threshold, but below is a similar fare on the same line. Notice how it doesn't say anything about time restrictions. Only someone who has read the railcard's fine print would know that it shouldn't be used in the morning peak, despite it being called 'anytime'.


Whenever I book with the trainline, my ticket comes to £12 before 10. After 10 it is £11ish. And the original ticket price is the same!!!


Well all of the online booking websites said £11 no restrictions and the hundreds of great northern ticket inspectors and gatekeepers did not say there was a problem.


The 12 pound rule is always enforced. If the fare should be lower they charge you 12!!

I doubt you are allowed to your Heathrow Express ticket on TFL Rail. Please check with TFL customer contact centre on 0343 222 1234


Yes.. You would anyway need to have a zone 1 to 9 TC to get to Amersham from Heathrow. Now your z1to9 TC will cover your journey on TFL rail (earlier Heathtow connect) between Heathrow T4 and paddington. As earlier you would need to purchase a separate ticket on Heathrow connect.


Will this make it any cheaper to get to Amersham?


I have a Heathrow Express ticket (Advance Purchase), and was wondering if I can use it on a TFL Rail train instead? Reason why I want to do this is because I want to travel from Ealing Broadway to Heathrow now, whereas I had originally planned to travel from Paddington to Heathrow.


Hmm I take it you read the daily fail. Actually the additional cost for tfl rail to Heathrow is due to Heathrow charging for use of their tunnels and privately owned infrastructure. But feel free to spout nonsense about overpaid drivers (y)

So you do.. the main page does not state that, only when you look into the terms and conditions. Thanks for bringing that to My attention, I'll let my friend know

There is a slight difference, as I don’t have children family and friends would not have been a benefit, also there is a difference when you can use these cards in the morning


You have to have at least one named adult AND at least one child

Hi, Anybody know what's best from Preston, Wigan or Manchester to London? Return I need to get there for 9:30 monday morning.


You must buy your ticket before you travel at the ticket office otherwise you pay full open fare on board the train.


I travel to Liverpool to see my fiancee every week and have been paying Mr Branson silly money to arrive at 10:20 on a Thursday evening. The Northwestern trains take longer, have a change at Stafford or Crewe and aren't as comfortable, but a £20 return saving must be worth it.


Cold. This is not a deal, just a standard fare.


I know, they don’t make it easy for you. It’s almost like they have to offer the fare, but don’t want anyone to know about it! Definitely pukka though as my Dad bought one last week, and see ‘underground’s’ link in the post above for confirms and ticket details and restrictions

I travelled the other day 3 adults and was offered a groupsave discount of 26% no Railcard needed, was told 3 or more qualifies but, not all train companys offer it , you have to ask, anyway checked on Trainline app for 3 adults travelling in Cornwall and it added the groupsave discount automatically, don't know if it's regional. The gwr and cross country apps had it in the Railcard section but you had to select it yourself.


Anyone know if you can stack these - current one expires August?

Yea but the question was about work commute.


Completely false- this card can be added to Oyster cards in London, can be used across the whole country not a particular area and is not subject to the weekday all-day £13 minimum fare that the Network Railcard is, only peak time min. fare as with other railcards.


Stop deleting my comments


Not for weekends though. Min spend doesn't apply then.


With all these Millennials now with extra railcards you can officially say there's going to be a lot more snowflakes on the line. Expect delays.

Hi Rachel, I'd like to know what the price would be (for 2 persons) if we shared bathrooms in all hotels. Also I'd like to know if it would be possible to swap one or two of the hotels for family run minshuku's with an onsen. Thank you!


I'm also talking about 2 people. But I'm done arguing with random strangers. Some's got 'em street smarts, some don't. It's not your fault.


Your name is nothing to do with the fact that you either suck at maths, or are making things up. £255 is simply not enough to live in Japan for a month unless you are eating just home made okaka onigiri every day while sitting on your own in your room. Japan can be cheap, but not that cheap if you actually want to do things, or go places, or try local food, or drink with your friends... If that's your idea of a holiday in Japan, may I suggest putting NHK on in the UK and saving your money. Also, it's £2076.16 for two people, £1038.08 each.


Then you did something really wrong 28 times. I'm not here to antagonize anyone, just telling, that over 2 grand is way much overkill. I mean, for that funding I'd be eating in a family restaurant every day. True I'm not renting out a full fledged japanese house with an onsen and not staying in Hilton level hotels in every city, but I don't even want to. Even better if you know some people there. But hey, I'm just a guy with a weird name, how could I possible comprehend these things.


Why would you stay in a single flat and get a JR pass? You do realise that you can't do a day return to most places in Japan, even on the Nozomi. Also, eating as a tourist, IC Card use, days of lodging "here and there", entry to anywhere interesting, positioning travel to Budapest, transit to and from Narita, will all be much much more than £255. I'm a seasoned Japan traveller (28 times in the last 3 years), and now live here permanently. You're talking BS. No offence. The OPs itinerary is varied, interesting and good value. Your month in Japan sounds like a starving nightmare, frankly.

Don't even bother with a rip off Railcard. Finally gave in after spending a week doing research and bought a 3 year Family & Friends Railcard. Travel from Risborough to London with my family about twice a year and the savings calculated to be quite small. However I got to Risborough station yesterday with my week old railcard. The ticket booth was open and I asked for the cheapest one day travelcard for 3 adults and 3 children. The result was nearly £11 cheaper than any quote before buying my Railcard. I asked how they did it and the answer was they removed the railcard from the quote! I've only had the thing a week and it's cost me £70 already, if I use it it costs me an extra £11 per journey each time my family travel. I want my money back but it seems Railcard consider this item a "ticket" which is excluded from distance selling. I'd like to know if it's a ticket, why do I have to pay for another to travel?

Mine came the next day!


Ok thanks

Ohh yess thats better no way to check than great thanks for that :)
