Take your terrific twosome to the next level and buy a Two Together Railcard. Whether you’re going strong or you’re just ‘good friends’ (don’t worry – we won’t ask), you and your travel companion can look to save a great deal on your future train journeys. In fact, assuming you’ll split the initial cost of the Railcard, this one works out at one of the best for value. Read on below for more information!
The Two Together Railcard allows you and the person you travel with the most to get 1/3 off rail travel for a year when you travel together. The Railcard costs £30 for the year – or £15 each. Both travellers must be over 16.
It’s valid on most fares throughout the UK except for morning peak times, i.e. from 04:30 to 09:29, Monday to Friday. Your Railcard will, therefore, be valid on journeys departing at 09:30 and beyond. The peak times restriction is lifted on public holidays.
Finally, you must be present with your travel partner when using the Two Together Railcard – the clue’s in the name! You have to purchase both tickets at the same time for the discount to be valid.
With a Two Together Railcard, you’ll enjoy 1/3 off rail fares for a year. That means you can recoup the cost of the Railcard on a £90 ticket, and after that, the savings will be money in your pocket! Check out our Cheap train tickets page to see how you can maximise your savings.
You can buy a Two Together Railcard online or at the station.
If you opt to purchase online from the Two Together Railcard website, you’ll need digital photographs of both travellers and a debit/credit card to pay with. You can then choose to receive your railcard in Digital form or Physical form.
For Digital Railcards, you’ll need to download the Railcard app and enter the code given to you after purchase. This will activate your Railcard, and you’ll be able to travel straight away. Physical Railcards will be mailed out to you via First Class post – allow up to five working days for delivery.
At the station –
You can purchase a Railcard at the station on the day of travel but leave enough time to catch your train! Make sure you bring along two passport-sized photos with you. There will be application forms available at the station but if you would like to fill yours out ahead of time, download it on the official Two Together Railcards website.
