26-30 railcard: How to buy the millennial railcard

How and when to apply for the Millennial railcard- you will have to be quick

The popularity of the millennial railcard became clear this morning, after the website for people to get their hands on one crashed due to demand.

"Due to the unprecedented demand we have been working with our suppliers throughout the morning to further increase the capacity on the website to create a better experience for our customers".

A spokesperson for the RDG, which represents train operators and Network Rail, said: "We're sorry to those who have been unable to buy a trial 26-30 Railcard this morning".

However, the launch has been less than auspicious after the website selling the railcards crashed.

26-30 Railcard holders will get 1/3 off standard anytime and off-peak fares, as well as off standard and first class advance fares, across the whole National Rail network. "Sort out your website to make it fair!' Others said it's worse than 'waiting in the Ticketmaster queue".

There was previously no nationwide railcard available for people travelling alone between the ages of 26 and 59 unless they were disabled or in the armed forces.

Meanwhile, Tom Drury, from London, wrote: "The launch of the new railcard is a shambles". There will be a £12 minimum on tickets between 4.30am and 10am, excluding weekends and public holidays.


In a message to the National Railcards Twitter account at 7.48am, youth worker Josh Booth, from Leeds, posted: "Been trying to get 26-30 railcard since 7am, your website crashing and been on hold on the phone since then".

Despite these restrictions, if you do regularly travel off peak or over long distances, the new railcard could save you a packet.

If you are aged 30 at the time that the Railcard is purchased, you may still travel at the discounted fare throughout the validity period of the Railcard, even if you become 31 years old during that time.

One of those struggling to buy a card is Helen Coffey, deputy head of travel at The Independent.

The 26-30 Railcard won't apply to season tickets, Eurostar, and most London Underground and Docklands Light Railway tickets - unless using Oyster pay-as-you-go.
