A good distance for a reduced fare (4)

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'a good distance' is the definition.
'afar' can be an answer for 'distance' (I have seen 'great distance' mean 'afar' so perhaps 'distance' could also mean 'afar'). I am not sure about the 'a good' bit.

'a reduced fare' is the wordplay.
'reduced' means to remove the last letter.
'fare' with its final letter removed is 'far'.

'for' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for afar that I've seen before include "Not in this neighbourhood" , "Distant parts" , "Way-out" , "A long way away" , "Many a mile" .)
