Use a 16-25 railcard at peak times in July and August

Throughout most of the year there’s a £12 minimum fare when using a 16-25 railcard in the morning at peak times, making weekly/monthly tickets still the cheapest for daily work com… Read more

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)

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

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?


Thank you

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.

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


I ordered Thursday evening and it was delivered Sat morning.


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


Thanks. I needed to renew my card so this is perfect.

EAST ANGLIA 26-30 Railcard - £30/year

There's a trial? I thought this was about a trail around E.Anglia as per the post.




Since it’s a digital card, and the t&c says “1/3 off fares across Britain, is it possible to buy the card even if I live outside of east anglia? I noticed that for example transpennine express already has the 26-30 railcard discount option on its purchase page


Strange place to trial it because we've only got a handful of stations which are miles away for most people, especially here in Norfolk. Huge areas not covered by rail. 12 miles to my nearest station. Quicker and cheaper to drive anywhere, sadly.

Still working on 14 May 2018


Unfortunately the Network Railcard, which offers a third-off in the south east of England, is never part of these 10% off deals. Nonetheless, if you travel by train in the south east of England with any frequency and don't qualify for any other railcard, then the Network Railcard is well worth considering. It cannot be used before 10am on weekdays (with a few exceptions or so called 'easements'), and there is also a £13 minimum fare on weekdays too, nor does it offer a discount on Advance tickets (those tied to a specific timed train). However even taking account of these restrictions it can be well worthwhile. The 'Network Railcard area' extends quite far and wide - as far as Weymouth, Bedwyn, Worcester, Banbury, Northampton, Bedford, Huntingdon, Kings Lynn and Harwich. www.network-railcard.co.uk Map: www.network-railcard.co.uk/clientfiles/files/Map.pdf

No. You get 50% discount with a railcard as opposed to the normal 34%.
