Don't even bother with a rip off Railcard. Finally gave in after spending a week doing research and bought a 3 year Family & Friends Railcard. Travel from Risborough to London with my family about twice a year and the savings calculated to be quite small. However I got to Risborough station yesterday with my week old railcard. The ticket booth was open and I asked for the cheapest one day travelcard for 3 adults and 3 children. The result was nearly £11 cheaper than any quote before buying my Railcard.

I asked how they did it and the answer was they removed the railcard from the quote!

I've only had the thing a week and it's cost me £70 already, if I use it it costs me an extra £11 per journey each time my family travel.

I want my money back but it seems Railcard consider this item a "ticket" which is excluded from distance selling. I'd like to know if it's a ticket, why do I have to pay for another to travel? SCAM artists

Huge areas not covered by rail. 12 miles to my nearest station. Quicker and cheaper to drive anywhere, sadly.


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

Yes just send NHS proof you have a disability, like a copy of an NHS disability related card/book or a copy of your specialist/GP letter confirming your disability. If in any doubt give National rail a call and check what they will allow. I've had to call for someone before, they were really helpful.

you have to send proof that you receive a disability benefit



No, it's not just for benefits. You get one if you have a hearing impairment too, you just send in a copy of your book they give you that has your hearing aid details in it, it's called a 'brown book' at my hospital. Audiology told me about this 'perk' when I first had my aids.
