2 Month Free Family Railcard

Now expired for 2014 but we’ll bring you more details if this runs again in 2015.

A Family & Friends Railcard

A Family & Friends Railcard will save you 1/3 off adult fares & 60% off children’s fares. This railcard is valid for up to 4 adults that are traveling with one or more children aged between 5 & 15 years old.

But did you know that up to 4 adults & 4 kids can travel on just one family & friends railcard…and you don’t have to be related! All child fares are subject to a £1 minimum fare.

    please can I try the free 2 months family and friends rail card thanks

  2. why do you send emails offering two months free ,and when you apply
    to get it ,you are told they are expired ,BAD BUSINESS

    • Hi Karen, our last email newsletter did include information on a family & friend railcard offer but this wasn’t a 2 month free offer but rather a promo code that offers £10 discount off a 1 year F&F railcard. You can find more information on this offer over at Family & Friend Railcard Offers & is valid for use until 21 February 2016.

  3. Hi I signed up for a 2 month rail card said it was on its way and still not arrived.

    • Hi Liane, do you mean the 2 months railcard has not arrived yet? Unfortunately, this 2 month railcard was only valid until 31 July 2015 so you have missed this promotion. This offer was slightly different this year as it was limited to the first 125,000 applicants and all were taken very quickly this year. Just to clarify, Topdogdays is independent of this railcard promotion, (we simply let you know where the deals are), & is not involved in the running of this offer.
