What are Railcards?
A Railcard enables you to obtain a reduction (usually 34%) on most tickets. A wide range of railcards are available e.g. 16 to 25 Railcard, Family and Friends Railcard and Senior Railcard. The Railcard should be shown at ticket offices when paying the fare and the Railcard must be shown along with the ticket for it to be valid. Failure to produce, when requested, the valid railcard will mean that you will be treated as having joined the train without a valid ticket and may be charged the full fare for your journey or issued with a penalty fare.
