Saving money with the Two Together Railcard

Saving money with a Two Together railcard

It’s been a little quiet on the blog for the last couple of weeks, mainly because I’ve been out of town for a few days. In the spirit of saving as much money as possible, I used a Two Together Railcard with my other half to cut the price of rail travel by a third (read on for an offer on these cards that you might like).

You can get a Two Together Railcard to share with a partner, a best friend, or a family member. As long as you are both over 16 years of age there are no restrictions to buying one, and it can save you 1/3 on all standard and first class train fares including Advance, Off-Peak and Anytime journeys. All trains must depart after 9.30am but that’s about the only restriction.

The standard Two Together Railcard usually costs £30 for a year (£15 per person), and it will pay for itself within one or two trips.

OFFER: Right now you can get 20% off a Two Together Railcard if you buy it online and use the discount code ‘SUMMER’. Offer ends 18th July, 2016.

If you have enough points saved up on a Tesco Clubcard you may also be able to use Clubcard Boost to effectively get a Two Together Railcard for £15. Check their small print for full terms and conditions.

They’re very easy to buy through the website, and once you’ve entered your details all you need to do is upload digital photos of yourselves and place the order. Our card arrived within five days and with free postage, all very convenient.

As well as a third off fares there are also exclusive discounts available to Railcard holders on top attractions, entertainment and UK holiday destinations. The cards are handy for making travel savings on day trips, going to festivals and short breaks, and getting to airports. We used ours to escape to the countryside for a few days at a spa hotel and it was a very relaxing whole trip.

It was a last minute booking so we got a good deal at the hotel, but that meant hunting around for last minute train tickets too (not always the best time to get the cheapest tickets). Somehow we were lucky and the tickets for the train we needed worked out cheaper for First Class than they did for Second Class, so it was a more spacious and comfortable journey than we were expecting.

Shopping around for your tickets is always a good idea, and we eventually found ours via thetrainline. Everything went smoothly with our Two Together Railcard and we saved a third on the ticket price too.

Full disclosure: I was given a railcard by the promoter for review purposes. All words, thoughts and opinions my own and there has been no editorial interference.
