this code still works, thank you so much OP (y)
The other week I saw a guy in his late fifties use this on a train. He explained he gets it because he's in full-time education.
Just paid £30 for my kid this morning. ;(
You can buy a 3-year one the day before your 24th birthday. Which means you are a member of the scheme until the day before your 27th birthday. This is the hard limit. There's not way to be a part of this specific scheme if you are exactly 27 or older. Example: If it's your 24th birthday today, the last chance you had to buy a 3 year one was yesterday. The last day to purchase this at all (1yr membership) is the day before your 26th birthday, which then takes your membership of the scheme to the day before your 27th birthday. So you don't really get any additional benefit by buying for 3 years (unless you can get a discount better than these recurring coupons each year.) The exception of course is if you're a mature student, at which point age becomes irrelevant. EDIT: Source: https://www.16-25railcard.co.uk/help/faqs/32/
Only way to make trains just about affordable. Hot.
