5 Things You Can Do With Your Disabled Persons Railcard

Want to travel in comfort for less and see more of Britain with ease? Well, with a Disabled Persons Railcard, you can

When you travel by train with your Disabled Persons Railcard(external link, opens in a new tab), you can also take advantage of some amazing offers that can be enjoyed at your destination. Interested? We thought so. Discover more below.

1. See more of Britain for less

Travelling across the country doesn’t need to cost you the earth. With 1/3 off travel for you and any adult companion, your Disabled Persons Railcard lets you catch up with old friends and go on new adventures by train for less. As we say, Nothing Beats Being There!

So, what does that look like you ask? Well, the average saving with a Disabled Persons Railcard is around £91* a year, and you can make back the initial cost in just 1 or 2 trips. And if you want even more savings, our 3-year deal is the way to go. It’ll knock a further £6 off your average savings.

Elsewhere, if you’re travelling across London, you and your travel buddy can get 1/3 off Off-Peak Day Travelcards and Anytime Day Travelcards. You can also load your Disabled Person’s Railcard onto your registered Oyster Card and save 1/3 on single peak and off-peak pay as you go fares. Visit the Disabled Persons Railcard website(external link, opens in a new tab) for full details.

2. Enjoy a great deal on a top attraction

When you travel by train – with discounted tickets via your Railcard, let’s not forget – you can also benefit from 2FOR1 deals on some of Britain’s best attractions, all courtesy of our regularly updated Days Out Guide(external link, opens in a new tab)**.

This includes the Tower of London(external link, opens in a new tab), home to over 1,000 years of incredible history, Fox in a Box Escape Rooms(external link, opens in a new tab), which pits you against a relentless clock, and Kew Gardens(external link, opens in a new tab), a serene, fascinating and beautiful space in the heart of the capital. In short, there are experiences for all interests.

3. Grab a bargain on major exhibitions in Britain

You can also get a great deal on top exhibitions at art galleries and museums when you travel by train, with 2FOR1 deals and discounts available on shows and exhibits nationwide.

This currently includes seeing the critically acclaimed works of the 20th-century American painter Philip Guston at the Tate Modern(external link, opens in a new tab), and getting up close with iconic costumes at the DIVA exhibition at the V&A London(external link, opens in a new tab) (including the dress worn by the actor Bette Davis in the iconic movie All About Eve and the flamboyant birthday outfit worn by superstar musician Elton John for his 50th birthday).

4. Treat someone special to an evening of entertainment

Whether it’s a special occasion with a loved one, a birthday treat for your bestie, or a night out with mates, you can enjoy big discounts on an evening of entertainment and dining when you travel by train (on top of travelling for less, too, with your Disabled Persons Railcard(external link, opens in a new tab)). Just visit our Days Out Guide(external link, opens in a new tab) to find the latest bargains for evening outings.

Previous deals have included making potion cocktails at The Department of Magic in Edinburgh and mouth-watering food tours in Manchester. In terms of current offers, consider a 2FOR1 offer at London’s Sound Cafe(external link, opens in a new tab), where live music and sizzling American-style dishes await, or 25% off your total bill at Italian Kitchen Brighton,(external link, opens in a new tab) where you can indulge in quintessential Italian dishes.

5. Experience historic landmarks and sites

With your Disabled Persons Railcard, you can unearth stories from the Stone Age to the 20th century by travelling by train to historic landmarks and sites across Britain for less (even more so when you combine it with a Days Out Guide offer).

In London, for instance, you can enjoy 2FOR1 tickets to Shakespeare’s Globe Guided Tour and Globe Story(external link, opens in a new tab) and 2FOR1 tickets to Westminster Abbey(external link, opens in a new tab), which has famously hosted every royal coronation since 1066. There are plenty of historic destinations with good accessibility outside of the capital, too, including Warwick Castle(external link, opens in a new tab), the Caerleon Roman Fortress and Baths(external link, opens in a new tab) and STEAM – Museum of the Great Western Railway(external link, opens in a new tab) (a particular favourite of ours, rail enthusiasts that we are!).
