Often called ‘The Millennial Railcard’ or the ‘under-30 Railcard,’ a 26-30 Railcard is a discount card that makes train travel cheaper for anyone aged 26-30 with 1/3 off Standard Anytime, Off-Peak, Super Off-Peak Single and Return tickets, as well as Standard and First Class Advance tickets throughout Britain. You can also link your 26-30 Railcard with an Oyster Card to get 1/3 off Off-Peak travel around London.
The 26-30 Railcard will only cost you £30 a year, but that pretty much pays itself off once you use it on a few train journeys.
Anyone aged 26-30 can use a 26-30 Railcard.
