New 26-30 Railcard To Go On Sale Before 2019

Image from the 26-30 railcard website.
The 26-30 railcard was originally announced in the autumn 2017 budget and will finally arrive before the New Year.

The new “millennial” 26-30 railcard will go on sale before the end of the year. A trial in the spring saw the ticket website crash as tens of thousands of people attempted to grab one of the 20,000 available cards.

The digital-only railcard will allow rail-users in their late twenties to receive a 1/3 discount on fares for 12 months upon purchasing the ticket, however, you will need a Smartphone to be able to use it. The card will mean some rather extensive savings for people who make extensive use of the trains.

How much is the 26-30 Railcard?
The 26-30 railcard will be on offer for £30 and will grant one-third off the majority of rail travel for 12 months.

Can I use the 26-30 Railcard for commuting?
If you are travelling before 10 am on a weekday you will need to pay a minimum fare of £12, the same restriction that can be found on the 16-25 railcard.

These restrictions will apply on fares through July and August unlike the 16-25 railcard, and you won’t be able to get fare reductions on sleeper trains, first-class tickets, season tickets or Eurostar tickets.

Buying a season ticket has traditionally been the cheapest way to travel if you’re commuting, but with the introduction of this card, buying a ticket every day will almost certainly be cheaper.

When will the 26-30 Railcard be available?
The new 26-30 Railcard will be available before the end of this year. You can find all the latest information on the dedicated card website.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Review

A mid-range phone with triple rear cameras is a rare thing, especially at under £300 but the Galaxy A7 isn't an instant winner. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)? The Galaxy A7 is a decent choice for a mid-range phone if you're looking to spend less than £300. Highlights include an excellent screen, nice design and cameras you'd wouldn't expect to find.
However, unless you're going to use the wide-angle lens a lot there are some strong rivals out there like the Moto G7 Plus and Honor Play.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.
