You can't use a railcard on on-peak trains though right? I'm a commuter under 30 years old and I usually buy weekly or monthly season tickets


Copy places like Japan. There you need a confirmation from the rail company before you can use the trains as an excuse for being late to work.


Some sound tips for those not in the know. Rail prices reflect, to some degree, policy choices as to how rail travel is paid for, and how the rail system operates. The current government thinks rail passengers should pay a greater share of the cost of running the railways, and doesn't seem to feel the need (yet) to tear up the franchise system or fundamentally change the fares system that (to the layman, i.e. me!) seems overly complex (example - look at points 8, 11, 12 and 13 for starters and it is obvious the ticketing system is fundamentally broken). The annual price hike numbers are about the only pricing that the media can pin the rail industry and government down on - had to laugh when hearing Teflon-man and uber-smug politician Chris Grayling come up with a new excuse to deflect from the real issues that he should be doing something about (paraphrasing, his response to fare rises is they will be reduced if rail staff accept lower pay increases - some truth of course but that could be applied to any industry and I'm sure those rail staff have the same bills everyone else does).


Another railcard has only recently been launched. The 25-30yrs railcard


Its good but all useless to the single commuter aged over 30. The biggest thing they could quickest roll out is the oyster card" use" method across the country. We have 1000s of government staff being encouraged to work from home and the archaic ticketing kills that. If i got a weekly and wfh once im out of pocket. If i get a monthly and wfh twice im out of pocket etc. The season tiks are not worth it unless u go in every day of the year.

Sigh, the rail card that came one year too late for me. They had been talking about this thing for ages.



I will never be too old to get a senior railcard.... And you can use it to buy first class tickets and avoid bumping in to young adults, communists and children.

How is this card any different to the Network Railcard which all the southern folk of all ages are entitled to?


Why should any age group be charged more than any other ageism!

Wish they'd hurry up with the 26-30 railcard.


I did query that with Tesco when they originally switched to "everyone" doing 3x times but only got waffle in reply as to why Railcards weren't. Good news if true. Edit We’re planning on changing this Reward Partner to 3 x the value of your Clubcard vouchers by 30 November 2018. If for any reason there is a delay in launching the new 3 x product, this Reward Partner will be temporarily removed. https://secure.tesco.com/clubcard/boost/family-friends-railcard/UK-002022.prd


Apparently on another deal someone said from 30/11 it will be 3 X on this so only £10.


Brilliant - thanks!!


Sounds complicated, so you have to travel with a child between 5-15 all the time, and can't use it to a London station during morning peak? Or you can't travel between 2 London stations during morning peak? So into London is ok? Not very clear!

Yea but the question was about work commute.


Completely false- this card can be added to Oyster cards in London, can be used across the whole country not a particular area and is not subject to the weekday all-day £13 minimum fare that the Network Railcard is, only peak time min. fare as with other railcards.


Stop deleting my comments


Not for weekends though. Min spend doesn't apply then.


With all these Millennials now with extra railcards you can officially say there's going to be a lot more snowflakes on the line. Expect delays.

There's a trial? I thought this was about a trail around E.Anglia as per the post.




Since it’s a digital card, and the t&c says “1/3 off fares across Britain, is it possible to buy the card even if I live outside of east anglia? I noticed that for example transpennine express already has the 26-30 railcard discount option on its purchase page


Strange place to trial it because we've only got a handful of stations which are miles away for most people, especially here in Norfolk. Huge areas not covered by rail. 12 miles to my nearest station. Quicker and cheaper to drive anywhere, sadly.

I used to have a season ticket to Birmingham and an under 25's railcard. Sadly, you couldn't use the railcard to get the discount on season tickets. Times might have changed, but I doubt it.


Brilliant if works for daily commuting or Is this off peak only? I will be 26 by the time this comes into force. I meet criteria, live in Cambridge. My monthly ticket is around £600! So will this come down to £400? That would be amazing!


My old under 25’s one lasted a year even though I bought it about 2 weeks before my 26th birthday. This was a while back though


If this is for east anglia is there a way to apply online? Bet you could apply online then go to station say you lost it and get a new one there and then. Just satin...


Postcode lottery, not fair on those of us who will be past the age when you're eligible when it comes to your postcode in Spring, but if you got it now it would last for minimum one year.

Hi...yes sorry Clubcard vouchers which you collect by doing your shopping at Tesco and elsewhere too if you use their credit card.


No, I'm referring to when I was young enough qualify for one and that was the standard price


Hot for the price. I have missed the £20 deal a few months ago


Silly question but do you mean Clubcard vouchers? I don't shop in Tesco so not sure how it works - can anyone get the vouchers to pay for the card or do you need to earn them over time.


I always buy mine with £15 worth of Tesco vouchers....doesn't cost me anything in hard cash then! :D

A bit hypocritical here. You knocked the post in the first place. Many people who can get the deal may not have known about it until they saw it here. They was no need for a sm*rt ass comment about knowing about it for ten years. Do you ever post deals or keep them to yourself? Saying people should find out for themselves could be said about all deals and then we wouldn`t need this site to tell us about them. As for saying the two posters aren`t disabled, how do you know?


If you are genuinely disabled and not some try on scum bag with a "bad back" then you find out about all these things when your life changing disability takes over your life. To help with the cost of getting around. Some people need someone to be with them when they travel like a support worker. Poor memory, concentration, forget to get off train, can't drive. etc, use your loaf. edit - sorry if the above sounds coarse. It's just pretty obvious the two people making these posts aren't disabled and have no need of this deal. One virtue signalling, the other complaining.

You took a discussion on a disabled rail card to talk about benefit fraud? I told you that corporate tax evasion/ avoidance is worse. You changed the topic? Anyway this is what is broken not a few people claiming benefits fraudulently! Your text here


If humans haven't the ability to think before they speak, is that classed as a disability?? Perhaps they already have a disabled person's railcard?? (Only kidding, I totally agree with you!)

Worked for me. Got a 2together card for 24.50


Thanks OP - you just saved me £4.50 on a raillcard renewal!


So I tried again today and it worked. This time I didn't use all capital letters, I put Spoilme and ta-da! Thanks op.


Does not work on all railcards as claimed. You can not get discount on 3 year disabled person card. If I wanted to purchase the 1 year version, SPOILME code was verified. There is the possibility of £2.83 cashback with TCB but that's only roughly a third of the 15% discount if it had worked. I also had terrible problems trying to upload evidence of benefit. My file was only 419kb jpeg yet it kept telling me I could only upload 4mb at a time. The only way to fix this is to keep pressing the back button till you reach the first page and you can delete the whole application and start again. I think I'll just save my pennies and use my bus pass instead.


Thanks, managed to get the disabled persons railcard for £17 using the code SPOILME

It only works for 1 year cards. The three year ones have just a fraction over 20% discount. The 20% offer comes around every year at renewal time, so the 3 year card would just save you admin and cover you against price rises - if you want to pay so far in advance.


I've spent all afternoon trying to buy a 3 year senior railcard but to no avail, can you only buy a one year with this promo deal? Does anyone know please?


​I always found that buying our child a ticket with the railcard made it cheaper than not buying the child seat and just paying for the adults. Even though she was tiny and didn't 'need' a seat as such, the extra space was welcome!


Yes the discount comes off advance tickets but it's a third not a half discount so your £15.00 ticket would be discounted to £10.00


Plus 5% cashback via Quidco.

Is there no railcards for 1 person over 25?


A single ticket London-Plymouth for 1st June without any railcard is £36.50, so no great saving.


I spoke to a friend at ATOC (a organisation that represents UK rail companies) who was involved in setting up this railcard. The reason the rail companies are doing this card is to encourage two people who would normally drive to get the train. You don't have to be a couple, friends is fine. The card works across the UK unlike the Network Gold Card which only works in the South East. It also gives you the discount on advance fares which is a bonus. They don't do it for people travelling alone as those people are more likely to get the train anyway. PS: I have no involvement in atoc or rail companies.
