Rail Cards

The 16-25 Railcard is a type of annual card for young people and students (including certain mature students above the age of 26), which grants discounts of 1/3 across a wide range of railway tickets in Britain. 

Young Persons Rail Card
Students under the age of 26 may apply for a Young Person’s Railcard®.  You can buy one online or in person at your nearest staffed station.  For more information, please visit the 16-25 Railcard website.
Mature Students
If you are a mature student, aged over 26 and in full-time study, you may also be entitled to a Young Person’s Railcard®.  You can collect an application form from any staffed station.  Once you have completed your details, firstpoint can stamp it to confirm that you are in full-time education.  You will need to bring a passport sized photo and your student ID card with you. 

You can also apply online.  For more information, please visit the 16-25 Railcard website.
