Veterans Railcard To Launch On Armistice Day

Veterans Railcard

A new railcard for British military veterans is to be launched on Armistice Day.

Due to be made available from 11 November, it will extend cheaper train travel to more than 830,000 veterans who do not qualify for existing discounts.

The railcard will cost £21 for an introductory period, before the price is increased to £30.

Holders will be able to save a third off most train tickets, although certain restrictions will apply.

It follows railcards launched last year for members of the public aged between 16 and 17 years old, and 26 and 30 years old.

Joined by veterans at St Pancras railway station, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said the veterans card "will help open up opportunities" in employment, retraining and personal relationships for veterans.
