Family Ticket Train

In order to allow families to travel around the UK at a reasonable rate numerous different public transport companies have begun to offer families tickets. These tickets allow families to travel at a discounted rate. Purchasing one of these tickets is more cost effective than purchasing the tickets individually and therefore the family benefits.

Usually family tickets have to be purchased before travelling on a train, although different companies have different policies in place and therefore families are advised to check before travelling. The majority of train companies offer special discounted family tickets when they are purchased early. It is worth considering that family tickets may only be eligible on certain travels.

National Rail offers a family ticket, although terms and conditions do apply. These tickets must be purchased before travelling. Two adults and two children can travel together on a family pass, this costs 40.00. Further children can added for 5.00 each, the children must be under the age of sixteen.

Virgin Trains also offer large discounts to families when they wish to travel together, these discounts can be gained through purchasing a family ticket or family rail card. The rail card provides discounts on travel for a year after purchasing the card.
