New Rail Card for 26 - 30 Year Olds

The Government will help keep the cost of living down for around 4.5 million more young people by introducing a new discount railcard for 26-30 year-olds.

The new, digital-only “millennial card” is expected to offer benefits similar to the current 18-25 railcard, giving a third off most rail and tube fares, at a purchase price of £30. The typical sum saved by holders of the existing 18-25 railcard is about £190 a year, but the benefits could be higher with the 26-30 railcard if it enables more people to cut the cost of commuting.

The first 26-30 railcards will be offered to 10,000 users of the Greater Anglia network in early December, while the scheme goes national in early 2018
