yes providing it's within a certain number of days.
Can you renew your existing rail card before it expires ?
They always have a 10% discount code for two together. If you have Tesco points, better to wait until end of next month when you can get it for £10 worth of Tesco clubcard points. We’re planning on changing this Reward Partner to 3 x the value of your Clubcard vouchers by 30 November 2018. If for any reason there is a delay in launching the new 3 x product, this Reward Partner will be temporarily removed. https://secure.tesco.com/clubcard/boost/two-together-railcard/UK-004161.prd
Thank you so much! This is why I love this site 👊🏻
code worked perfectly, saved £24.00 on my first tickets so only £3.00 to save in the next 12 months to be quids in.
No. Other cardholder must be present or you will be charged standard fare.
So better value for railcard deal - £10 in vouchers buys £30 card. What’s not to like?
When you get together one, can you travel alone with same card?
And only today news leaked by MSE that Clubcard vouchers... ... after 30 Nov will be doing 3x value towards Railcard purchases rather than £15 buys one ... after 31 Jan won't be able to claim any more RedSpottedHanky eVouchers, at 3x value or any other value :(
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!
I ordered Thursday evening and it was delivered Sat morning.
Ohh yess thats better no way to check than great thanks for that :)

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

Hey Guys; Just a bit of a headsup, you can apply for the 16-17 railcard TODAY and allows people 16-17 the ability to purchase train tickets at the price of a child (50% discount)… Read more
Yes but no, you can still purchase a season ticket valid for 4 months after your 18th birthday and it will still be honored. Obviously you will need to purchase the season ticket before your 18th birthday. If you buy a Season ticket before your 16-17 Saver expires, you can keep using the season ticket for up to four months after the expiry. The two expiry dates are shown on your 16-17 Saver Source
Will it be possible to use clubcard points to buy it? (you can use clubcard points to buy the other types of railcards)
Not as far as I can tell, sorry. It might be a bit new for it at the moment. 😞
Hi, is there a code for some money off ? Like they usually do for the 16-25 railcard purchase (10% or 20% off)
Just ordered one for son who is 16 today thanks

And by the way, it's not full fare, it's twice the single fare or £20, whichever is higher, and you may be asked to leave the train at the following station. If you bought an advance fare you could be in for a shock.
Nope. You forget your railcard it means you don't have a valid ticket and will be issued with a penalty fare. It's not retrospective. It may have changed a little since I was dealt with like this but that's the nature of the beast, it's a legal document, you have to pay. In my case I was threatened with being kicked off the train if I didn't agree to pay. Having no cards or cash, I had to sign a form and if I didn't pay this fare within a day or so, I got further penalties. Once you've paid, you can appeal but it'll fall on deaf ears because without being in possession of the railcard with the ticket, it's not valid for travel. Plenty of people get caught out in this way.
Absolute nonsense. If you have forgotten your railcard you will be asked to pay full fare and then when you contact customer services and prove your railcard is valid they will credit you for the full fare. People who end up in court have ignored many opportunities to pay. You don't seem to know anything about the system.

You can't use a railcard on on-peak trains though right? I'm a commuter under 30 years old and I usually buy weekly or monthly season tickets
Copy places like Japan. There you need a confirmation from the rail company before you can use the trains as an excuse for being late to work.
Some sound tips for those not in the know. Rail prices reflect, to some degree, policy choices as to how rail travel is paid for, and how the rail system operates. The current government thinks rail passengers should pay a greater share of the cost of running the railways, and doesn't seem to feel the need (yet) to tear up the franchise system or fundamentally change the fares system that (to the layman, i.e. me!) seems overly complex (example - look at points 8, 11, 12 and 13 for starters and it is obvious the ticketing system is fundamentally broken). The annual price hike numbers are about the only pricing that the media can pin the rail industry and government down on - had to laugh when hearing Teflon-man and uber-smug politician Chris Grayling come up with a new excuse to deflect from the real issues that he should be doing something about (paraphrasing, his response to fare rises is they will be reduced if rail staff accept lower pay increases - some truth of course but that could be applied to any industry and I'm sure those rail staff have the same bills everyone else does).
Another railcard has only recently been launched. The 25-30yrs railcard
Its good but all useless to the single commuter aged over 30. The biggest thing they could quickest roll out is the oyster card" use" method across the country. We have 1000s of government staff being encouraged to work from home and the archaic ticketing kills that. If i got a weekly and wfh once im out of pocket. If i get a monthly and wfh twice im out of pocket etc. The season tiks are not worth it unless u go in every day of the year.
I did query that with Tesco when they originally switched to "everyone" doing 3x times but only got waffle in reply as to why Railcards weren't. Good news if true. Edit We’re planning on changing this Reward Partner to 3 x the value of your Clubcard
vouchers by 30 November 2018. If for any reason there is a delay in
launching the new 3 x product, this Reward Partner will be temporarily
Apparently on another deal someone said from 30/11 it will be 3 X on this so only £10.
Brilliant - thanks!!
Sounds complicated, so you have to travel with a child between 5-15 all the time, and can't use it to a London station during morning peak? Or you can't travel between 2 London stations during morning peak? So into London is ok? Not very clear!

Thanks OP, just used the discount to get a 1 year card for my son.
Thanks for this - perfect timing. I did it online. Submitted Tue, was dispatched Wed and arrived Thu, so highly recommend doing it online (even got a few extra days validity as they are giving me til 10th Sep next year). Also, there is 8% Topcashback so winner all round!
Apologies will update - There is a 10% off the family card with this code 'SFFR10' if useful (have tried this on on website now, but don't know when it expires.

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.
