New Veterans Railcard launching on Armistice Day 2020
A new railcard will help veterans save almost a third on most rail fares, benefiting more than 830,000 veterans who do not already qualify for existing discounts.
On sale from 11th November 2020, the railcard will help open up employment and retraining opportunities, and enable veterans stay in touch with friends and family.
The railcard will cost £21 for a limited period, before rising to £30.
“Discounted train travel is a fantastic way to recognise those who have served this country, and the speed at which plans have been worked up shows how seriously we are taking our commitments to make the UK the best country in the world to be a veteran.” Minister for Defence People and Veterans Johnny Mercer.
