How much is a Disabled Persons Railcard?

The card costs £20 for a year or £54 for three years. The Railcard will allow both you and an adult companion to one third off most rail fares throughout the UK.


How much is a Disabled Child Railcard?

There isn't a Disabled Child Railcard as such. For all children under the age of five, train travel is free whilst travelling with a fare-paying adult. All children aged between five and 15 years get a 50% discount on most train journeys which works out better than any Railcard reduction. A child within the same age range can apply for a standard Disabled Rail Card which doesn't offer any additional discount but will grant an accompanying adult a third off their ticket as long as they travel together.
