This is great news if you travel on trains, you’re set to save a lot of money if you’re a commuter or just a now and again traveler.
A trial took place in December 2017 for a new 26-30 Railcard and it has now been extended nationwide, woohoo! To get your railcard simply visit 26-30railcard.co.uk.
Since the Railcard is only available to purchase for limited time, and can be used across the National Rail network. Do note that due to high volumes of visitors to the site, it has a tendency to crash. So if it isn’t working at the moment, be sure to revisit.
About 26-30 Railcard
The digital 26-30 Railcard will give you 1/3 off most rail fares in Great Britain straight away and costs just £30 a year. It is available to purchase for limited time only, and can be used across the National Rail network.
It’s not like the usual Railcard which is a hard copy. It’s a digital and you can download it onto either your iphone or android device.
And that’s not all… if you’re eligible for the 26-30 Railcard trial you’ll also benefit from fantastic discounts on attractions and events, allowing you to make the most of the local areas you travel to. These include Virgin Experiences, London Aquarium, Madame Tussauds and many more.
Great things about train travel
Utilise your new Railcard and remember there are so many benefits to train travel such as:
- You get to avoid annoying road traffic
- You can do things during travel such as listening to music or read
- You can access a toilet easily. If you have kids you will totally see the light with this one.
- You’re not stuck in one place
- You can get food and drink easily
- It’s better for the environment
- You save adding hundreds of miles on your car
