The Veterans Railcard provides rail discounts to ex-armed forces members. If you retired from the Armed Forces and are no longer eligible for a HM Forces Railcard, this is the railcard for you. 


Am I eligible for a Veterans Railcard?

You can claim your veteran train card if you’ve served a day in any of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces (Regular or Reserve) or Merchant Mariners (providing you’ve seen duty on a legally defined military operation).


How much can I save with a Veterans Railcard?

A Veterans Railcard gives you 1/3 off Standard and First Class Anytime, Off-Peak and Advance fares on train services throughout Great Britain, when you travel after 09:30 Monday to Friday and any time at weekends and on Public Holidays.


How much is the Veterans Railcard?

Buy your Veterans Railcard before 31 March 2021 to save £9 - costing just £21 instead of £30 for a one-year railcard, or £61 instead of £70 for the three-year railcard.


Where can I use the Veterans Railcard? 

You can use your Veterans Railcard to travel anywhere in Great Britain on the National Rail network.
