Thanks to Cass at Frugal Family for the heads up on this one.
Wherever you're going, take your Family & Friends Railcard with you to save on rail fares. As long as you have at least one child travelling with you, you'll qualify for Family & Friends Railcard discounts.
A Family & Friends Railcard costs just £30 per annun and you save 1/3 off adult fares, and 60% off kids’ fares on travel throughout Great Britain. If you travel with a child between five and 15 years old then you’re eligible.
Up to four adults and four kids can travel on one card, and they don't even need to be related. So, for what works out to around £2.50 a month, you can look forward to dramatic savings for the year. All child fares are subject to a £1 minimum fare.
Even better you can get a two month free Friends and Family railcard with Daily Mail. But be fast as the offer runs out at 23.59 hrs 23rd May 2013.
