Online

  • A digital passport-style photo saved to your computer, tablet or mobile phone
  • A debit or credit card

 

What happens next?

We aim to dispatch your Railcard within one working day of you ordering it, but it’s probably best to allow up to five working days for your 16-25 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 the physical 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. If you need to travel straight away, you’re better off buying a 16-25 Railcard over the counter at your local staffed station.

At a Staffed Station Ticket Office

You can buy a 16-25 Railcard at any staffed station ticket office or National Rail-licensed Travel Agent. The main advantage of this is that you can do it on the day you are travelling.

If you're applying at a station for the first time you'll need to bring one of the following:

  • Your birth certificate
  • Passport (all nationalities accepted)
  • UK driving licence
  • National identity card

 

You'll also need:

  • A passport-size photo
  • Proof of eligibility if applying as a mature student

If you're renewing your Railcard, you'll need to fill in the application form, and take your existing Railcard and Photocard. These are automatically accepted as proof of your age. If you are renewing an online Railcard at a station you will need proof of age as above.

Once you've bought your Railcard at a station, you can then register it online.  This will make it easier for you to renew or buy other cards online.

By Phone

You can get your Railcard quickly and easily over the phone too. Simply call our telesales service on 0844 871 4036 (0700-2200 every day, except Christmas Day. Calls are charged at the national rate. Please note you’ll also need to submit photos of you and the second named cardholder via email.
