A nifty card that gives you regular savings

Save 1/3 on train tickets with a Railcard

You can get cheap train tickets and enjoy travelling across Great Britain for less with a railcard. There are several options available and the best one for you will depend on your individual circumstances.

Most railcards are available as a one-year or three-year option and will help you save at least 1/3 on train tickets – including journeys on the TransPennine Express network, which covers the North of England and Scotland.

And there’s no limit to how much you can save with a railcard, as you can use it as many times as you like on valid journeys before it expires. Better still – a railcard can help your family and friends save money on their journeys, as well as give you some great discounts on days out, entertainment, and even holidays.

Check out our useful guide to see which railcard is most suitable for you. 

Important notice: If you bought a Railcard online but haven’t yet received it and are due to travel shortly, you can provide the email confirmation of your Railcard purchase together with photo ID so that staff can validate your discounted ticket. If you haven’t been able to purchase a Railcard online, you can buy most 1-year Railcards at any staffed National Rail ticket office (see individual Railcard websites for details). If you’re having issues with your existing Railcard, please contact us on Twitter, Facebook, 0345 3000 250 or railcardhelp@nationalrail.co.uk.
