Two ways to buy....

The Veterans Railcard is available to buy online and by post.



You can save yourself time by buying your Veterans Railcard online. The only things you’ll need are:

  • Evidence of your eligibility as a veteran
  • A good quality digital passport-style photo ready to upload
  • A debit or credit card 


What happens next?

Digital Railcard: if you opt for a digital Railcard, we’ll send you a download code once your application has been approved (which can take 5 working days) and once you download the Railcard app and upload the card onto your phone, you can start using it straight away.

Physical Railcard: we aim to dispatch your Railcard within one working day of it being approved (which can take 5 working days), but it’s probably best to allow up to 5 working days for your Railcard to arrive. It’ll be sent out free of charge by First Class post, but if you prefer, you have the option to pay for Special Delivery.

You’ll need to have your Railcard with you to be able to get a discount on your rail ticket, so be sure to leave enough time before your journey for the Railcard to reach you.
