The day I became too old for a Young Persons Railcard was a cold, dark day here at Thrifty Towers. Not only was I old but I wouldn’t be getting discount train fares for years unless I popped out some small folk or turned 60 overnight.
Two Together Railcard
Previously railcards had only been available to those under 26, armed forces, those over 60, disabled passengers or those travelling with children. National Rail have gone and pulled a blinder by launching the first new railcard in 30 years, to fill in the gap. Enter the Two Together Railcard, designed for two people (be they a couple, friends, family, work colleagues etc.) travelling together, costing just £30 per year. This new railcard is for two named (and pictured) passengers and allows for a third off adult fares when, as the name suggests, travelling together. You can use this new railcard on Standard and First Class Anytime, Off-Peak and Advance tickets after 9.30am weekdays and all day across weekends and bank holidays.
