Disabled Person's Rail Card

What is a Disabled Persons Railcard?

If you have a disability that makes travelling by train difficult you might qualify for the Disabled Persons Railcard.

The Disabled Persons Railcard let's you get 1/3 off most rail fares throughout the UK

If you're travelling with an adult companion they also can get 1/3 off their rail fare - so you can save money for your friends too!

How much is it?

£20 for a one-year Railcard or £54 for a three-year Railcard.

So, use your Railcard for a £60 fare and you'll save £20 on the journey. That means a one year Railcard has paid for itself in just one trip! Take a friend with you and you've saved enough for lunch, a visit to the cinema or whatever you both enjoy.
