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. 

Worcester is a central point for travel in so many directions via train. We also have three train stations, Worcester Foregate Street, Worcester Shrub Hill, and Worcestershire Parkway, which makes train travel so convenient. 15 minutes travel takes you to Malvern where you can walk the hills. 45 minutes in the opposite direction and you can hit the shops in Birmingham. Feeling super adventurous? Catch the train to the seaside – Aberystwyth is just over three hours away, you can explore the town, rock pools on the beach or take a trip on the cliff railway.

Travel fares can be expensive, but you can apply for a 16-25 digital railcard, and get discounts on standard anytime tickets as well as off peak tickets. Don’t be put off by the name ‘16-25’- this railcard is also available to people over the age of 26 who are in full time education.

Visit the railcard webpage to apply online and see the full range of benefits available or if you’re a mature student pop into firstpoint with the railcard application and a passport sized photograph, and we can validate your student status.
