"A 16 - 25 RailCard is a must have"

Hey everyone, this is a quick review about the 16-25 RailCard and what it offers, i've saved over £300 a year (yeah i travel a lot) so i want to help people like me do the same, so lets get to the point.

The 16-25 RailCard allows you to get a third of most train travel all over Britain; London midland, Virgin, London overground and travelcards, southwest trains, you name it. So basically, if your ticket usually costs £30 your fare price will be reduced to £20 and it is as simple as that. All you have to do is show your discount card when asked. There are two options to choose from, get a year 16 -25 RailCard for £30 or a 3 Year RailCard for £70.

To get the Discount Card, all you have to do is to and fill out the form, will take about 10 mins, must have a valid international passport or a UK driving license.

So who can get one? Anyone between the ages of 16 to 25, even those above 25 if you;
Are attending a recognised college or university, for over 15 hours a week, at least 20 weeks a year.
Have an NUS card or College/University photocard as proof of identity.

And you MUST your university or college to fill out a section 16-15 RailCard if your over 25.

There's also other little benefits, like discount at some restaurants and hotels, theatres and other rewards. In a nutshell its an amazing deal for anyone who travels by train a lot, specially those in University and go home on a regular basis, or just like to travel and don't own a car. Plus it's very simple to do and anyone really can apply.

However, everything has its drawbacks and the16-25 RailCard's is that it doesn't apply to season tickets, first class fares (unless paid in advance), Eurostar tickets and most London underground railway tickets.

But overall i highly recommend you get one, the money you save really does add up.
