Once you have the card, just a few trips per year will easily cover the cost and enable you to save money on future trips.

The Disabled Persons Railcard offers discounts for you and one other person in case you need assistance – or simply want to enjoy a day out with a friend or relative. Boarding a train alone? Then you can book some support for when you travel with us – just let us know 24 hours before your trip.
All of our trains have space for wheelchairs and we can take power scooters, so long as you have a permit.
Whether you want to pop into town for a spot of shopping, or head to a different part of Britain for a new experience, you can do so easily. Our trains stop off at many popular places including university cities like Oxford, Exeter and Bath. Historic Windsor is also within easy reach as are Welsh cities such as Cardiff and Swansea.
A trip to London will also keep you busy with top sites including Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. Watch a show in the West End, walk through the London Parks or head to the shops along Oxford Street.
If you want a breath of fresh air, why not head to the beach. From Cornwall and Devon to the Isles of Scilly, you won’t be short of coastal places to visit.
