How do I renew my Senior Railcard online?

It’s easy to renew your Senior Railcard with Trainline. When you renew a Railcard with us, it’ll live on your phone in our app – accessible at the click of a button. 

All you’ll need to get started is a valid form of ID, such as a UK Driving License or passport. And if you don’t already have it, you’ll need to download our app. Don’t worry though – you can do that once you’ve started the renewal process. Please note that the minimum Operating System (OS) required to renew your Senior Railcard is iOS 13.4 and above or Lollipop on Android.

It costs £30 to renew your Senior Railcard for one year and £70 to renew for three years, saving you £20 on the price of three separate Railcards. Find out more about the Senior Railcard.


How far in advance can I renew my Senior Railcard?

If you renew online with us, your Senior Railcard will become valid from the date of purchase onwards. As such, you can renew at any point before your current one expires, but it means there could be a period of overlap between your current Railcard and new Railcard. If you want to maximise value, make sure you renew as close to the date of expiry as possible.

Can I renew my Senior Railcard after it expires?

Yes, absolutely. It doesn’t matter whether your old Railcard was purchased at a station or online – you can renew a Senior Railcard with us at any point after your old one expires.
