VARIETY - BLOGLeave the car at home this summer - 24/06/2014
We all love days out, but fuel is expensive... and travelling in the car to and from your destinations boring for children (we've probably all witnessed the fights in the back!), so why not take the bus or train. Somehow, it makes the day more of an adventure and you can go much further afield without the stress of driving. As they say, the world is your oyster... only in this case, it's the UK. Whether you live north, south, east or west, all over the country there are theme parks, country houses, fairs, parks, circuses, activity centres, swimming pools, beaches, zoos, gardens... the list of leisure activities is endless. You can also buy combined tickets for travel and entry to some venues... check your local railway station or coach company... or look in your local paper or online.
A Family & Friends Railcard is also a great idea 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 normally costs £30* 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.
*EXCLUSIVE TO VARIETY AGENTS AND THEIR CUSTOMERS - we've got a fabulous offer this month and you can save 15% off the price of a 1 year Family & Friends Railcard.

Up to four adults and four kids can travel on one card, and they don't even need to be related so you could share the initial purchase cost with another family. So, for what works out to just over £2 a month, you can make huge savings throughout the year. All child fares are subject to a £1 minimum fare.
