Discounted Rail Travel for Service Leavers

Service leavers are now on track for cash savings when they travel – thanks to a new initiative giving them money off train journeys throughout the UK.

The long-anticipated Veterans’ Railcard offers former troops a third off most fares for a special introductory rate of £21.

Companions benefit from the same discount as the holder, while up to four children aged between five and 15 can travel with a hefty 60% saving.

Ex-personnel who have served for a day are eligible for the benefit – available in physical and smartphone forms – which went live on 05 November.

National hero Capt Sir Tom Moore was presented with the very first Veterans’ Railcard last month.
