Travel and transport bargains

The disabled persons’ railcard enables you to save a third on most rail fares across Britain. It costs £30 for one year or £54 for three years and is available for you and a companion. You are eligible to apply if you receive disability-related benefits, are registered as deaf (or use a hearing aid), are registered as visually impaired or have epilepsy, for example. You can register your railcard discount onto your Oyster card to get a third off single fares on National Rail, London Underground and Docklands Light Railway services.
