Want to save big on train travel? If you’re aged between 26 and 30, a 26-30 Railcard (aka Millennial Railcard) can save you 1/3 on your train fare. That averages out at £125 of extra pocket money every year – enough to grab an onboard meal and a cup of coffee whenever you like.


So, whether you’re off on a weekend jaunt to Glasgow, heading home to see the folks in Birmingham or exploring any other stops along our train network, you can cut a third off the price off your train ticket with a 26-30 Railcard.

Millennial Railcards can be used on Standard Anytime, Standard Off-Peak and Advance fares on train services throughout the UK. These railcards are in digital format only and can be stored on up to two devices, which means you can start using them quicker.

Here’s everything you need to know about getting your paws on a 26-30 Railcard and how to use it.
