Young travellers can make savings

Evesham Editorial 3rd Sep, 2019   0

YOUNG people aged between 16 and 17 are now able to get a new railcard which will give them half price fares and season tickets.

The 16-17 Saver, which costs £30-per-year and will be available for use from this week, is the highest ever discounted card for young adults and rail bosses anticipate it will give 1.2million a helping hand.

Users can have their card, launched on Tuesday, sent to their phone or a printed version.

The Young Person’s Railcard for 16 to 25-year-olds, which is also £30-per-year, offers only a third off fares and is mainly for leisure activities

The 16-17 Saver is aimed at helping teenagers with all rail travel – from college and education to family days out and enabling them to explore Britain via the railways.

Visit or call 0345 301 1565 for more information or to buy the new 16-17 Saver.

Proof of age will be required to buy one.
