As summer looms, finding things to do to keep your family occupied might be coming to the front of your mind.
The only issue is that constant days out and activities can add up to a mini fortune.
Luckily, there’s a way of combining your travel and getting a deal on attractions around the country with this great offer.
Here’s everything you need to know, and how to claim it:
What is in the deal exactly?
National Rail have an ongoing deal with attractions around the country, to get two for one entry when you travel by train.
If you’re travelling to an attraction by train, and purchase an adult ticket, you can use the ticket to get the offer.
It’s valid at locations around the country including Alton Towers, London Hop-On Hop-Off bus tours, Cadbury World, Legoland and many more.
There are lots of attractions in London too which you can get 2 for 1 on when you travel down by train too.
To get the deals, you’ll need to head on to the Days Out Guide website to see which attractions are available.
You can then use the train ticket that you buy (either in advance or on the day), to book your attraction with a two for one deal.
Alternatively, you can turn up at the attraction you wish and show your train ticket to get two for one tickets.
You can use the ticket on multiple attractions too – as long as you keep hold of it.
The only condition, is that you have to be travelling by train to the attraction that you want to get the deal on.
You may be able to trick it slightly however, by booking a one way train ticket just one stop away from the attraction you want to visit – which should only cost a few pound. But the savings on a two for one at large UK attractions could add up to £10-£50.
Why should I care?
This is a deal that not many people know about, and if you are travelling by train, it’s a no brainer to use.
It’s especially great for travel into London, as there’s a lot of attractions included, and so long as you keep your ticket with you, it makes near enough every tourist attraction two for one.
What’s the catch?
You do need to be travelling by train to the attraction you want to claim the offer on.
The train ticket also needs to be dated close to the date that you try to claim the deal. Unfortunately, you can’t use last years train ticket that you’ve stored for your two for one.
You may also need to print out a two for one voucher if you’re booking in advance online.
What other options do I have?
This offer however does include a lot more around the country.
Where can I find out more?
Head over to the Days Out Guide website for full details and to see which attractions you can claim it on.
