Disabled Persons Railcard

What is a Disabled Persons Railcard?

If you have a disability that makes travelling by train difficult you might qualify for the Disabled Persons Railcard.

The Disabled Persons Railcard allows you to get 1/3 off most rail fares throughout Great Britain. If you're travelling with an adult companion they also can get 1/3 off their rail fare - so you can save money for your friends too!

How much is it?

20 for a one-year Railcard. 54 for a three-year Railcard.

So, use your Railcard for a 60 fare and you'll save 20 on the journey. That means a one year Railcard has paid for itself in just one trip! Take a friend with you and you've saved enough for lunch, a visit to the cinema or whatever you both enjoy.

Who is eligible?

You need to give proof that you are eligible for a Railcard. You might qualify if you: have a visual impairment, a hearing impairment, have epilepsy or are in receipt of a disability-related benefit.

Being a Blue Badge holder, or having a concessionary bus pass, does not, in itself, entitle a person to qualify for a Disabled Persons Railcard. These schemes are designed to give parking privileges to people with mobility problems who have difficulty using public transport. They are run by local authorities who have the flexibility to use their discretion when issuing badges or permits. So whilst many of the people who have Blue Badges and bus passes may be candidates for a Railcard, there are many who would not.
