The new Veteran's Railcard

The government is introducing a Veterans Railcard that will provide up to a third off rail travel for veterans and their families – helping to repay the debt we all owe to those who have served our country.

  • We owe an enormous debt of gratitude to our veterans and a duty to help them re-enter the world of civilian work, once their service is over, as well as connecting with family and friends
  • The new Veterans Railcard will give access to those who have served in our armed forces up to a third off rail travel, for an introductory price of just £21. An estimated 830,000 veterans, who would not otherwise be eligible for a railcard, will now have access to discounted travel from 5 November 2020.
  • The UK’s military make huge sacrifices to keep our country safe. It is only right that we continue to show how much we value their efforts once they leave the armed forces.
