If you have a disability that makes travelling by train difficult you may qualify for the Disabled Persons Railcard. The Railcard allows you - and an adult companion with you - to get a 1/3 off most rail fares throughout Great Britain.
A one year card costs £18. Use it for a journey that usually costs £54 and you will save £18 meaning that the card has paid for itself! A three year card is also available for £48.

You must provide proof that you qualify for a Railcard. You might qualify if you: have a visual impairment or a hearing impairment or have epilepsy or are in receipt of a disability-related benefit.
Other Railcards
If you do not qualify for a Disabled Persons Railcard, you may qualify for one of our other Railcards. These are:
Senior Railcard. (if you are 60 or over)
16-25 Railcard. (if you are between 16 to 25 or in full time study)
Family & friends Railcard. (if you are travelling with one child or more)

My mother-in-law has one of these and when she had to go to london from bury st edmunds she needed my husband with her and they both got the 1/3 off saving loads more than the card cost in one trip. It's better value than a senior card (if you're over 60 and registered disabled) because of the companion getting the reduction also.

not really a deal this though is it? Been available for as long as i can remember and they're not really concession cards as such, they are a marketing device to get more people using off peak rail services. The real golden card to have is a scottish national entitlement card which gives free bus travel anywhere at any time and if you are registered blind gives free unlimited rail travel as well....

This isn't a deal though is it? It's a concession for disabled people. It's the same price it has been for years.

Maybe you should leave the OP to defend their post? Unless sticking your nose in is what you do best?

OK, great deal, what a money saver this is...........damn I'm not disabled. booooooo
hotukdisabledconcessionsdeals.co.uk

Did you also know you can get a cinema card that entitles you to a free helper if you are on DLA (and other benefits?) or a Toll Card for the Birmingham toll road for £15 that lasts 3 years and could save you a fortune. London transport is offering all ex service personnel a FREE oyster card giving FREE transport around London for 3 years. Mersey Tunnels offer 50 return trips a year free for registered motability customers and certain other disabled drivers. On DLA? Great get yourself FREE insulation and cavity wall insulation.

Only problem is, duh!!! you have to be disabled or on certain benefits due to your disability as they are a concession. NOT A DEAL FOR EVERYONE

There will be some that can benefit from this and save money so it has every right to be listed .
And do you really believe that everyone who visits the site could make use of a wii fit or a trampoline so shall we remove all these 'deals' from the list cos not strictly something for everyone.
I wish you no ill but you have some growing up to do, to lose your bitterness, and realise that just because somebody is in receipt of some kind of aid it does not mean they are getting one over on you. SHAME! :x
Don't heat the deal if you like but such a childish outburst.

Grow up. :whistling:

There is a place for these excellent concessions. It just isn't a deal when the cost is exactly the same.

I am disabled,
I do indeed have a disability that makes travelling by train difficult
(of course that is only because trains/transport is exempt from the rest of the law "protecting" disability from discrimination)

Unless the person travelling with me is an olympic champion weightlifter who can teleport, (and I a pretty sure they are failry rare!) someone travelling is not going to be much use, and they are going to be a positive nuisance when it comes to having to provide accommodation or whatever at the other end of the journey! (Perhaps I could accommodate him or her in the shed if I was staying with my parents?) that is, IF I can find someone to travel with me... hard in the extreme, because oddly enough most people have their own lives to lead

I am FAR from unusual, but consequently a disabled persons card will NOT help me in the SLIGHTEST, for the very reason that: I have a disability that makes travelling by train difficult!

The only reason such things are offered is as a palliative to "offset" the situation which binds every other service provider in the country, where disabled people must have reasonable access provided, but for many many years to come (if ever!) the railways are exempted

How do I deal with it?
I either don't go, or if practical at the time (NOT often!) - I drive..... fortunately for me, this is the answer. Not everyone has this option though :-( This myth perpetuated by governments that public transport is the way forward is pie in the sky, and disabled or NOT, is the reason why people (all people!) put up with appalling road congestion, and the exorbitant cost of motoring - because the trains are NO option for many at all :-(

My moaning over, the purpose being to illustrate that this is really of very limited use to MANY disabled people, (especially because if you actually DO qualify, then that will prevent you from using the train in any case!) but apart from that, of course this is not a deal. It is an everyday, always available option that is no different to suggesting a reduced price for a ticket for child is a "deal" it is part of the the normal pricing arrangements.

I notice that the OP doesn't mention the Network Railcard. These cost £20 per year and give 1/3rd off standard off peak rail fares in the south east. Best of all you can use it for you and three fellow passengers, so it doesn't take much to recoup the cost.

I know this won't help any registered disable users, but thought I should mention it in case anyone else is not aware of it and may find it useful.

Deals with Network railcard are subject to a £10 minimum fare so it is not for all journeys. A great deal for the disabled person's rail card - i didn't know it existed and so will forward it to a disabled relative. Thanks. HOT.

Cheaper to buy 3 year one for £48.
