Railcards are issued free of charge and are valid for 1 year. When we've received your completed application and supporting information, we will provide you with a code which can be used on the National Rail website and you won’t have to pay £30 for the senior railcard.
If you’re over 60 but not yet at pension age, we can’t give you a code – if you want a senior railcard you’ll need to pay for it. You're not yet entitled to an older person’s bus pass.
What a senior railcard gives you
A senior railcard gives you 1/3 off a wide range of train fares. It doesn’t give you free rail travel. Before you book, check that you can use the railcard as sometimes there are restrictions on which trains, routes and tickets you can get a discount for.
