The Two Together Railcard is an option for a duo who travel together most of the time, offering 1/3 off rail fares for both people. If you regularly travel with a significant other, family member, friend, or even a colleague, you can both benefit from discounted rail fares when you travel together. As this is a group discount, you can even split the initial cost of the railcard - making it even better value for money!

Together, you can save on practical everyday journeys, fun day trips, and exciting weekend breaks - as often as you like. With additional discounts and offers on days out, restaurants, hotels, and more, the Two Together Railcard saves you money on more than just rail fares.
