The Disabled Persons Railcard is available to disabled adults and children.
The Railcard allows you and an adult companion with you to save 1/3 on Standard and First Class rail fares throughout Great Britain for a whole year or three whole years.
The card costs just £20 for a whole year or £54 for three whole years, so if you make one journey that normally costs £54 or a couple of shorter trips you've covered the cost. And you can look forward to dramatic savings for 12 whole months.
There are plenty of ways you can use your Railcard, for both long and short trips. Better still you can use it almost anytime during the week, weekends and Public Holidays.

1. Tickets for your journey should be purchased before boarding the train and when buying tickets you must show the Railcard. You must have the Railcard with you on your journey and show the valid Railcard and ticket to rail staff at their request. If you do not show both the Railcard and the ticket, you will be required to pay the full price Standard or First Class Single fare, as appropriate for your journey as if no ticket was purchased before starting the journey and in some cases a penalty fare. This does not apply if there was no ticket office at the station at which you began your journey or if the ticket office was closed and there was no ticket machine from which you could buy a discounted ticket.
