Millennial Harlow rail travellers get chance for new discounts railcard

HARLOW rail travellers aged between 26 and 30 will soon be able to get their hands on a Railcard offering a 1/3 discount on rail fares.

The 26-30 ‘Millennial Railcard’ is being rolled out throughout Britain this month.

It is being introduced following a trial last year, where a very limited number of the cards went on sale.

Passengers who buy the £30 cards can then get a third off their rail fares for off-peak journeys . For a long trip, such as a return from Newcastle to London, Railcard holders will be able to save more on their fare than their card cost to buy, in just one journey.

Rail travellers aged between 16 and 25 have been able to get discounts with a 16-25 Railcard since the 1970s.

Railcard estimates 4 million passengers will qualify for the latest card.

Now, after a lengthy wait, the 26-30 Railcard release date has finally been revealed.

The Railcards will only be available online, through the Railcard website. They are digital-only, so passengers must download them to the Railcard app, and show ticket collectors the app, with their ticket, when travelling on trains.

The amount individual passengers safe varies from person to person. Basically, the more you travel, the more you will save.

However, it can actually be worth buying a Railcard just for one journey. For example, if a return ticket from Newcastle to London costs more than £90, you will save the cost of the £30 Railcard itself by buying one just for that trip, as 1/3 off £90 is £30.
