Everyone is eligible to at least one of the railcard, even non-UK citizens. National railcards available: 16-25 railcard, Senior discount card, Two together railcard, Family and Friends discount card and Disabled persons railcard.

  • To understand the savings that you can make with a railcard, you need to estimate the number of journeys you need to make earnings. You will see that commonly only a few trips are needed.

    Divide the cost of your railcard by the discount: £30/34%= £88. Then divide £88 by £15.62: £88/£15.62 = 5.63. You will need to make on average 6 trips from Shrewsbury to Birmingham (one way trip) with your railcard to start saving money.
