A Senior Railcard, also known as the Over 60 Railcard, the Senior Citizens Railcard or OAP Railcard, is a discount card that makes train travel cheaper for anyone aged 60+ with 1/3 off Standard and First Class Anytime, Off-Peak and Advance tickets throughout Britain. You can also link your Senior Railcard with an Oyster Card to get 1/3 off Off-Peak travel around London.
The 1-year Senior Railcard costs £30 and the 3-year railcard costs £70.
Anyone aged 60 or over can use a Senior Railcard.

Absolutely. In fact, having more than one Railcard can help you save even more. You can store and manage multiple Railcards easily in our app.
The Senior Railcard goes well with a Family & Friends Railcard
Senior Railcards cost £30 for the 1-year railcard and £70 for the 3-year railcard.
You can get a 1/3 discount on off-peak Oyster pay-as-you-go travel if you link your Senior Railcard to your Oyster card. You can also use the railcard to purchase Off Peak Day Travelcards for travel on the weekends and bank holidays, and after 9:30am on weekdays. However, if you live in a London Borough and you're over 60, you can apply for the 60+ Oyster Photocard which gets you free travel on all TfL services.
Yes. Although your Railcard will live in your Trainline App, it can still be used with tickets bought elsewhere.
No, you can't use your Senior Railcard to buy discounted Eurostar tickets (UK Railcard discounts are not applicable to Eurostar services).
Senior Railcards bought through Trainline will only work on iPhones using iOS 13 and above. As such, some older iPhone models running iOS versions below iOS 13 may not be able to support Railcards. Make sure you check which software version your iPhone is running before purchasing a Railcard.
* Average savings based on the difference between all fares booked by Trainline customers with a Railcard over the period of a year and those same fares without the Railcard discount applied.
