Previously only for National Rail and London Overground, from 2011 any of the cards below can be be linked to Oyster cards to reduce off-peak PAYG prices. Cards include:

Senior Railcard
16-25 Railcard
Disabled Persons Railcard
Gold Card
HM Forces Railcard

The discount amounts to 34 per cent off off-peak pay as you go single fares on Tube, DLR, London Overground and National Rail (previously was just National Rail and London Overground) and also 34 per cent off off-peak Daily price caps on the Tube, DLR, London Overground and National Rail.

Worth registering for the savings over the year!

Worth pointing out as some people are getting confused: This is not the same as the current deal where you get 34% off the DAILY CAP, this is 34% off a single fare. So if you make journeys where you won't hit the discounted daily cap (around £4.20 currently) then you will still make a saving.

why is this cold.
If this is easy to apply then it is very hot.
Until last year railcard holders paid 1/3 less on their off peak travel in zones 1-6, they lost this at the start of 2010 when oyster went live on rail.

If this is a regional vote, ie diss London, remember than more ppl live in the greater London metropolis than Scotland, Wales and NI together!

Shame you still can't attach a Network Railcard to Oyster.
#3
Not questioning OP but i swear I went to a ticket office this year with my young persons railcard and oyster card and they claimed to have attached the discount of 1/3 to the oyster card...
#4
This is brilliant, many thanks OP.

Would be hot deal if it included the Network Railcard.

yeah hang on unless I've missed something you've always been able to attach your railcards to an Oyster @ a London Underground station for a 1/3 discount on the daily capping limits. so are you saying you now get a 1/3 off the price of a single?

Same here. My young person card has always given me 1/3 discount for off-peak oyster fares. Hot deal nonetheless.
#10
nice deal if live outside London and disabled but if your resident its free if your aged 60 and over and disabled people get freedom pass
btw there increasing fares after 1st jan 2011
#11
You've been able to attach Railcards to Oyster for a while now - the big difference from 2011 is that you now get a discount on tube off-peak single fares as well as National Rail and London Overground fares and daily capping rates.

The other big change for next year is that journeys from outside of zone 1 into zone 1 during the evening peak (4pm to 7pm) will now be priced as off-peak journeys.
#12
Wonder if they'll advertise this (by email or such) or keep it quiet for the "opt in only"... Thanks to the OP for the heads up!
#13
This has been in effect for quite a while...
#14
my railcard already linked in to my railcard for the daily price cap that has been available. Would i be right in presuming i do not have to do anything to gain the benefits of the single journey discount?
#15
I've never used an Oyster card but I do have a 16-25 Railcard, does this include getting discounts on Day Travelcards for the London Underground (the one where you can do unlimited journeys in specific zones for a day) Ta

#18

#19
Ahh the difference is that previously it was on off peak oyster capping, now its also on oyster pay as you go fares.

Same here. I knew nothing about this. This is going to save me about £10-£15 per week commuting from Essex into London to get to University.

Voted HOT! Thanks OP for bringing this to my attention
#21
this has been running for the past 3 years already!
#22
I've had my 16-25 railcard attached to my Oyster card for the best part of a year already. It could be though that I lowered the cap, when from next year they'll introduce a discount on all single fares.
#23
my daughter buys a weekly train ticket from hamilton to glasgow she is 19 would it cost less with the 16 to 25 rail card how much is a 16 25 rail card
#24
Brilliant, spread the word. I bet there are a whole bunch of people with rail cards who may have missed out on this as it has been poorly advertised in the past.
#25
This has been in effect for several years now. I have had my oyster card registered with my railcard since 2009 and have got a discount on the daily cap (and off-peak PAYG fares) since then.

Good reminder though if you have not done it yet
#26
Good stuff thanks OP

As Mentioned earlier fares London Undeground fares go up on 2nd January, I have had a quick look and a typical 1 month Travelcard is going up from £99.10 to £106 , and this is quite typical of the increase. The New prices are on the http://www.tfl.gov.uk website, click on "tickets" button and its all there.

Remember, you can purchase 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, (ie 1+ month) and still pay the current rate if you get it befroe 2nd Jan.

Also an Annual ticket give you 12 months travel for the cost of approx 10 and a half, so an annual before the 2nd of Jan could be a real saving for some people.
(ie an annual Travelcard 1-2 is currently £1032, where as from 2nd Jan 12 x 1 month is £1272. (Annual will be £1104).

I've tried doing this numerous times, registering my Oyster card, etc. and each time it becomes unregistered, sick of doing it but a hot deals if you can get it to work.
#28
Its applying the discount to your card which is a pain. No mainline stations have the oyster equipment to do it so I had to go all the way to London to get it done.
#29
Thanks for the information! I never knew about this, and of course TFL wouldn't want this widely advertised. HOT. I just think of all the money I could have saved the past 3 years now....

Go to any tube station and tell the counter people that you want to register your young person card to your oyster. You will need to show your young person card as proof as they need the expiry date. This is how I got mine sorted and didn't have any problems over the year.
#31
I've had really terrible luck with station attendants having any clue about this and even the one did that did know, couldn't figure out how to apply the discount...arrrghhh!
#32
Hummy

I had the same problem when trying to have my 16-25 card added a while back, she was most insistant I couldn't do it until I asked her to read the leaflet next to her which said I could.

Worth remembering to have it added again at the counter when you've your Railcard each year.

Sadly I'm too old for a railcard now, so no discount :(
#33
can you attach a normal Discount Rail card to this offer?
Im student over 25 .
cheers
#34
i had mine linked about 2 months ago... been around for a while, but quite cool.
#35
thanks for the heads up!
#36
tbh - what gets me is that I keep getting ripped off by TFL every time I go thru London bridge changing from train to tube. I get charged twice for my single journey because I have to touch out of Train to go into Tube! TFL assure this doesnt charge you twice - but it bloody does!!
#37
I see once again that effectively the rest of the country is subsidising Londoners who, despite earning more money than anyone else, get to enjoy cheaper travel than those of us up North.
#38
HOT, hot, hot! I just wish this was posted only a month ago. Just got back from a long weekend in London using my new oyster card, spent over £20! This could've been less as I also have a railcard... well, there's always next time!
#39
thanks! had my card for 3 yrs and was unaware of this! heat added :D
#40
so i have a gold card season ticket to london already, i use my oyster card to go to the football at weekends, so all i need to do is go to the ticket office once and ask them to link them and i will save money?
