Veterans railcard set to launch
A new railcard offering discounted train tickets for military veterans will be available from November
The railcard – to be released on Armistice Day, 11 November – will allow users to save a third off most train fares. It will benefit more than 830,000 veterans who do not already qualify for existing discounts, the Department for Transport said.
While serving Armed Forces personnel already qualify for their own railcard, ‘Every part of society should honour the debt we owe those who’ve served our country,’ said Transport Secretary Grant Shapps, adding that allowing ex-Service men and women to travel more easily is ‘the least we can do’. ‘The railcard will help open up opportunities to veterans, whether through employment and retraining, or by strengthening links with friends and family,’ he continued.
An HM Forces Railcard can already be bought by serving personnel for £21 a year. The new railcard, specifically for veterans, will also cost £21 for a limited period, before rising to £30.
