I don't know if they still do. HSBC offered a 3 year Young Persons Railcard FREE! For students who open a student account with them :-)

'Please remember that for all journeys made at or between 4.30am and 10am Monday to Friday, a £12 minimum fare applies. This means that the Railcard is not suitable for most daily commutes to work or places of study'. There is always a catch.

Santander are doing a free 4 year rail card for opening a student account. I know its not for everyone but definitely worth a look on their website. I just got mine its great!

I anyone is interested the link below shows the best student account deals available for the upcoming academic year.

any way to sneakily get this even if you are older than 25?

If you're in full time education.

You can get a 16-25 railcard if you are over 25, but only if you are in education. You also have to fill out paper forms and it cannot be done online.

16-25 railcard seems to cut my usual return ticket between uni (Bangor) and home almost in half... except when I forget it. That said, over the past few years the return ticket has crept up by a few pounds and the journeys have gotten considerably worse; delays, cancelled trains, bus-replacement services.

Visiting Munich made me realised just how ridiculously bad public transport is in the UK...

It's a very expensive joke. Thank the efforts of the wonderful transport worker unions, and all their demands, which have led to such expenses.

While not exactly the same, you can get a Network Railcard for £30 that gets you 1/3rd off rail tickets, however it only works for journeys in the South East of England - here is the map: railcard.co.uk/cli…pdf
It allows you to travel with up to 3 other adults and they all get 1/3rd off, plus up to 4 children (5 - 15 years) get 2/3rd's off. It has a similar restriction to the student card where you cannot travel before 10am.

If you are in the South East of England and you are heading north, you can get the 1/3rd discount up until the boundary zone.
You can view full details here: railcard.co.uk/net…rk/

'Save10' will get you 10% off without needing to jump through all the hoops, though it's 60p worse a deal.

Banned

like some others (think op should look more and open a free bank account) and get 3/4 years for free

and this sites meant to be deal hunters lol what a joke, Google more

I think those bank account offers only apply to first year students so they're no use for me. My 3 years free from RBS have just run out so I need to buy one for the first time.

The offer page doesn't seem to work. I tried the link in your description or clicking into it straight from the homepage but they both just take me to the homepage.

When I signed up for my student bank account they didn't take any details from me. Makes me wonder if I could just do it again.

Mature students can apply online from this year, I have

OP, I certainly hope you aren't going to university to read English!

"A lot of credit goes to Simplyalif too as I wouldn't have found the site without him"

I've voted cold, because even if you don't want to go down the bank account route mentioned by posters above, it's still cheaper to buy a three year card for £70, than three single year cards.

That's what I thought, but I'm a 4th year student and I just opened a student account with Santander. Santander's rules were a little vague, it said nothing about having to be in 1st year or having a student account elsewhere. If you're desperate, you could try again. Maybe it's because the bank assistant who helped me open one wasn't entirely sure what he was doing, I might have gotten lucky

great!! cheers!

When posting a deal, at no point does it state perfect English should be used. I thought I would have made much more mistakes than that lol. When online, I just write it good enough for people to understand, which seems like you have.

Or £15 in Tesco Clubcard Vouchers if you have some kicking around, LINK.

I'm in the age bracket but not a student! Why call it the 16-25 railcard.. Wouldn't it be better named 'student railcard'

Being a student is irrelevant, anyone aged 16-25 can get it that is why it is called the 16-25 railcard - not the 'student railcard'

I'm pretty sure you need a valid student email

Singhsa

For this studentbeans discount on the railcard, not for the railcard itself.

You don't need a student email to get a 16-25 railcard, hence why it isn't called a student railcard. This deal [i]is[i] for students but the railcard itself is for all aged 16-25.

Ooh might look into one then

Thanks, the codes had all gone the other day. Heat added!

ran out of codes

Since you can make that connection, then surely you can also realise that it's not private companies which wanted to up their basic workers' salaries so high.

Going to be buying the 3 year railcard for £70. Much better value if you don't mind the higher upfront cost. £23.33 a year

I was looking into this last year - it would be perfect if it included travel before 10! I get my trains at 8am for college which makes this, sadly, useless.
Then for everywhere else I go it works out cheaper to get the bus anyway.
Good deal for people who travel after 10am though.

The train I get in the morning from Blackburn to Bolton is at 10.03 so will a Railcard be okay for this? I know it says it's okay after 10 but don't wanna show my railcard when I buy my ticket around ten minutes before and they say minimum fare £12. Any help appreciated.

I'm from Blackburn too

Anyway, yeah the railcard discount will apply for this train. When you get the ticket (say 10 mins before) the next train will be the 10:03 one, so the person should automatically apply the discount upon showing the railcard without asking you anything.

Don't forget that you can buy this up until the the day before your 26th birthday, which is when I plan to renew mine!
