Type Savings Card



As cars become more expensive, and roads more congested, raiil travel is enjoying a return to popularity. The trains may sometimes be crowded, and occasionally late, but even this beats the misery of sitting in lengthy traffic jams. If you're a young person, a couple, a family, or over 60 you can save a 1/3 of your fair with a Rail Card.

There are several types of card:

  • Young Persons Railcard available if you're aged between 16 and 25, or 26+ in full time education
  • Senior Railcard for the over 60s
  • Family & Friends Railcard up to 4 adults and 4 children aged 5-15 can travel on one Family & Friends Railcard, and they don't have to be related
  • Two Together Railcard for 2 named people travelling together
  • Disabled Persons Railcard for disabled people
  • All railcards cost £30, except the disabled persons railcard, which costs £20.

    Why in 100 Best?

    If you're eligible for a railcard, a railcard oftens pays for itself after just one trip, and from then on savings can be considerable.
