How To Save Money With A Network Railcard
|Travel : Travel Tips|
Most people in the UK are aware that people under 26 on many rail networks can get reduced travel costs.
This is called a young persons railcard and gets you a discount of typically a third off any journey, with a few restrictions.
However most adults are not aware that there is the opportunity for them to get discounts on rail travel too.
Called a network railcard, quite a few operators allow you to use this to get a discount of a third off your journeys - subject to restrictions.
Typically it must be on off-peak travel and also on a return journey there is a minimum fee at the time of writing this is at £13 at which it can be used.
However if you use trains a few times a year then you can save a lot by using a network railcard. It is worth the cost of £25 a year if you do around, say, 5 - 10 journeys a year; although of course just one expensive journey could make the money back in and of itself!
