As the kids are getting older we are using trains a lot more now that we don’t have a buggy in tow.
With a family in tow I always recommend people invest in a Family and Friends Railcard as it can make a big saving on rail travel and this month National Rail has announced an ‘egg-citing’ Easter sale – offering £5 off its Family & Friends one-year Railcard.
The sale, which will run from Friday 24 March to Monday 24 April, means the Family & Friends Railcard will cost just £25 with the code EASTER5, for a year’s unlimited usage.
Railcard owners save an average of £142.80 a year, more than four times its cost at standard price – and up to six times as much at the discount price.
Daniela Maki, Railcards Product Manager for National Rail, said: “With the Easter break just around the corner, a Railcard can help you save on ‘cracking’ rail journeys during the holidays. Whether you’re delivering Easter treats to family and friends, off to take part in an Easter egg hunt, or a family day trip to keep the kids entertained, a Railcard will save you 34% on rail fare to help you do all the things you love.”
As well as a third off fares, exclusive discounts are also available to Railcard holders on top attractions, entertainment and UK holiday destinations, including discounts on Virgin Experience Days and theatre tickets.
To purchase a Railcard at the discounted price visit: familyandfriends-railcard.co.uk/sale between Friday 24 March and Monday 24 April and use code: EASTER5.
