    It is discounted travel, only the card itself is free.

    I accidentally unchecked the box for subsequent offers- but I think to get the code for 50% off renewal I should have kept it checked. I did use it with under 5s if they looked like they might be 5- I don't think they are that bothered and how could they check?

    great stuff wanted one last year - so this will make the summer hols - as the kids always want to go on a train - 13.00 for a year after the 2 free months is great!

    If theyre under 5 you can choose to pay for them to get the discount it's fine.

    Thanks for this we got one last year so will do the same with this offer brilliant!!

    All kids under five travel free - and each adult may take up to two 'under fives' with them. However, if the only child in the group is under five, you'll need to purchase a discounted child ticket to qualify for the adult Railcard discount. All child fares are subject to a 1 minimum fare.

    With the card you get 1/3 off adult fares and 60% off children (5-15yrs) fares.

    Excellent find OP, mine has expired & I was looking for a deal! THANKS XXXX

  • Confuzzled
    cheers for this to the OP, i'd been hoping this would come up again. this is my 3rd time using this offer, my current card expires July 13th so I can use the full length of the trial card to extend that and then buy my new card 1/2 price again like last year
