UK Railcards

Rail Cards

Depending on the number of journeys you make per year, and the demographic you fall into, it can often be worth purchasing a railcard. Railcards are available for travel in the UK and in France and Germany, and offer substantial discounts. Sometimes it is worth purchasing a railcard for just one journey and our experienced consultants can advise and supply the most appropriate railcard for your needs. Our range includes the UK Senior Railcard for anyone aged over 60, 16-25 Railcard for anyone in the 16-25 age range and also to full time students of any age. Travelling with children (whether your own, the Grandchildren or friends') considerable savings can be made with the Family and Friends Railcard. Brand new this year the Two Together Railcard is available for any two travellers making a journey together.
Also available are similar Railcards for travel in France. In Germany anyone can purchase a card to save 25%, 50% or even 100% on all journeys. Call us on 01766 772040 to purchase over the phone!

European Rail Timetable

European Rail Timetable

For 140 years Thomas Cook produced the "European Rail Timetable" which covered rail times throughout Europe. Unfortunately in 2013 Thomas Cook decided to close the publishing arm of their business and rail travellers across Europe have missed the timetable. All is not lost however, in March 2014 five of the timetable compilers from Cook's started producing a new "European Rail Timetable". The new timetable contains all the information that was in the old Thomas Cook version as well as a new "Route of the Month" feature from the editors of Hidden Europe magazine. Our new section on our website, in conjunction with the editors of both Hidden Europe Magazine and European Rail Timetable, will detail the tickets required for each "Route of the Month".

If you have any travel questions, need a rail ticket from the airport to your destination or have a personal rail holiday in mind, Ffestiniog Travel services extend to more than escorted rail tours. Visit our ticket only website for more information or call us on 01766 772050 or email with your queries.
