A couple of weeks ago we were planning a trip to London at the weekend and we were looking for cheaper train tickets when we came across the Two Together Railcard.
The fare at the time would have been £38 but with the Two Together card, we could save £13 on our first journey. As we often travel by rail and plan trips to Bristol, Norwich, and Exeter before Christmas it was an easy investment to make – we’d make our £30 outlay back in just two trips, bargain!!
Buying the Railcard with Trainline was easy and straightforward as well. In a couple of minutes, we had input our details, uploaded photos (passport-style but not so formal), and downloaded the card to the Trainline app for use.
For the savings alone – an easy 5-star experience!
