There are many advantages to being older, and one of these is the fantastic discounts available to pensioners. Aside from a free bus pass, it is also possible to invest in a Railcard, which will present large savings to those travelling by train. Not only this, but we have partnered with Senior Railcard in order to provide our customers with a further 15% discount on the cost of the railcard itself.
Purchasing a rail card gives those in possession a fantastic saving of 1/3 off all rail fares, including Standard and First Class Anytime, Off-Peak and Advance fares. This well help those of you wanting to travel around the country for trips such as visiting family or heading to a new destination for a holiday, with the majority of trains accessible for older stairlift users.
Make even more savings!
The initial cost of the Senior Railcard is just £30, which means that after just a couple of trips, your card will have paid for itself. This could potentially save you an average of £114 over the course of the year. The Senior Railcard can be bought following your 60th birthday and will also provide you with a number of added benefits, such as savings with Railcard’s partners. These include days out, museum entry, hotel stays and much more, which will be extremely useful during city breaks and holidays.
3-year railcards are also available, meaning you can get even more for your money. Those planning to do a lot of travelling over the next three years can purchase a Railcard for just £70, which will give you a saving of £20 on the price of three 1-year Railcards instantly.
