10% off 16-25 Railcard - now ONLY **£25.20** for 1/3rd off all Train Journeys/Oyster Card for 1 Year

Found 7th Jan 2012
It is a 1-Year 16-25 Railcard. Was £28, now just £25.20 using code "Save10". This Railcard allows you to save 1/3rd off the train journey price (including Advanced Singles and even First Class)

I am going to be doing a Manchester - London return trip during peak time so was going to cost me around £63 open return. This Railcard will save me £21 (1/3rd off the ticket!) for only £25.20!!! Meaning you a 1/3rd off ALL other train journeys for a YEAR for only £4.20!!!

It takes around 5 minutes to do an application including uploading a passport photo. Remember the code is 'Save10' and valid until March 31st. This is an online deal only!

Perfect for people who travel a lot, especially students who travel to and from uni.

Also works on Oyster Cards too (Thanks for xoinx)

**update: extra exclusive code for Family & Friends Railcard: Halfterm20 ** (valid till 29th Feb)

Use "Vue10" to obtain the discount.

I've never understood why 18 to 25 year olds get a discount, they can work full time like the over 25s

Hot

If only I was under 25 :-(

@jb666 Its for students. We need to travel up and down the country to get to university and back. Your generation of students got no tuition fees, ours gets 9k a year and 1/3 off train fares....

Can similar railcards be bought for 33 yr olds? The train fare is just getting ridiculous now for a trip to scotland

For those living in London, the railcard discount can also be applied to your Oyster card. Just take Oyster card and railcard to a London Underground ticket office for them to apply the discount on your card.

Many over 65's can work... should we make them....?
Also, it's near impossible for 16-25 year olds to get a job, just look at employment statistics for the last 2 years...
Finally, under 18's have a terrible minimum wage (slave labour [never any mention of a maximum wage is there?)...

I'll agree with you there, should apply for mature students aswell, I don't think anyone (except the greedy privatised rail service) thinks mature students shouldn't be entitled to the same discount...

It's just as hard for a 26 year old to get a job as a 18 to 25 year old

Kinda splitting hairs there by adding an additional year into the agenda... but yes, I'm sure that is the case for many people... maybe it's even difficult to get a job at 27!

a mature student is classed as 21 in university...so if you apply at 21, get a 3 year railcard, it'll last til you're 24, then if you really want, after you finish uni, you can buy a one year railcard because they are not valid for anyone over 25.

It does apply to mature students too, so long as you have a valid student Id,at least it did a few months ago when I last got one

Can this be used on the high speed train to London St Pancras? also can you use one for a couple or do you both need your own individual card?

you need your own individual card.

Go on the trainline, type in where you are leaving from, where you are going to. Add a 16-25 railcard and see how much it costs. It should knock 1/3 off the price.

CLUBCARD? cold

You can get it for mature students all you need to do is take a letter from your institution saying whne your course finishes

Posted on the other aswell. Is there anyway of doing it online without a driving license or passport? They dont seem to accept Provisional!

but over 65s get a free pass,regardless
the question here is why stop at 18-25? the card isn't listed as a student card. its listed for 18-25 year olds regardless of income/status

This is also available for over 25 year old who are in full time study (mature students). You get the 10% discount still but you must tell them over the phone (about the discount) and then go to the station for the actual pass because they need proof of study.

You guys are missing the point, it's more profitable to charge younger people less because they have less disposable income.

Mature Students get this, and you can buy a 3 year railcard when you're 24 and 364 days if you wish - One of my friends is now 26 and still has it

27 in may and mine still has well over a year left on it =)

Young people have more limited mobility than people above the age of 25 on the whole. Hence why schemes like this exist in loads of countries, not just the UK (in France for example, under 25s get the discount without having to buy a railcard).

As has already been said, it also applies to students - no matter what your age is.

Tip:

If you get this (or renew) the day before your 26th birthday it'll last for a year till the day before you're 27.

If you're too old for this and want a similar discount travelling in the South, consider the Network Railcard.

Yeah, the amount of students I see with iphones or ipads happily paying like £130+ for renting a tiny room because they have on site gyms and jacuzzis etc(seriously) and going drinking a lot and whinging how they only have £50 left to last them 2 days despite being asked out drinking that night etc.


Anyway I have a 16-25 card but cant renew it online as over 25 grrr.

at tesco clubcard you can get a 16-25 railcard for £14! Why is this even getting any heat?

hmmm..somehow I thought you can only use this with your oyster if you've a student oyster card? Might be wrong though...

FAQs so far

1) High speed trains- yes it works on high speed trains into london.
2) Oyster card- You can add it to any registered oyster card. doesnt have to be a student oyster.
3) I think the Provisional driving licence works as proof of ID to register online. Although it was a couple of years back when I did this, and I just renew it online the last 2 yrs so didnt have to register again

Not valid before 10am on Monday - Friday by the way guys

Makes it useless for getting to Uni most days!



Thanks, this is great! I was planning on travelling to London 10+ times over the Olympics and this will save me a ton, especially useful as I'm 26 in a few months time so its really now or never!

This was posted a couple of weeks back and I used the code for a friends and family card
