Note that to use a Family & Friends Railcard, you must be travelling with at least one child aged 5 to 15 years.

The benefits of the Family & Friends Railcard are set out in full here, and can be summarised as follows:

  • Up to 4 adults will get 1/3 off travel, when travelling with up to 4 children aged 5-15 (who will get 60% off).
  • It applies to most rail fares (including the Heathrow and Gatwick Express: although given that accompanied children under 16 travel free on the Heathrow Express, this saving will apply only to the adult tickets (because 60% off £0 is not really a saving)).
  • The card is not just limited to family members, but anyone travelling together (specifically, they “must travel with the Railcard holder throughout the journey”).

The full terms and conditions can be found here.
