With a 16–17 Railcard, known as the 16–17 Saver, you can get 50% off most rail fares to travel across Britain. It’s great for young students and professionals to save money on getting to college or work, or exploring destinations around the UK with friends.
If you’re aged between 16 and 17-years old, read on to find out how much a 16–17 Saver costs, how to buy one and exactly how to use it to book cheap train tickets with us.
If you’re already 17, you might want to consider buying the 16 – 25 Railcard instead.
Buy a 16 – 17 Saver online and choose to get it digitally or via post. To apply, all you need is:
You can also buy your 16-17 Saver over the phone, by calling their telesales service on 0345 301 1656* (7am to 10pm every day except Christmas Day).
*Calls cost no more than calls to geographic numbers (01 or 02) and may be recorded for training and monitoring purposes. Please note, you’ll also need to submit your photo via email.
If you buy a digital Saver, you'll be sent a code and once you download the Railcard app and upload the card onto your phone, you can start using it straight away.
A 16-17 Saver gets you 50% off most rail fares every day of the year with no time restrictions and no minimum fare.
You can buy discounted tickets up until the expiry date of your 16-17 Saver. If you buy a discounted Season ticket before the expiry of your 16-17 Saver, you can continue to use this Season ticket for up to 4 months after expiry. The expiry date and the date that you can use your Season ticket until are shown on your 16-17 Saver. For more information on when you can use your railcard, read the full list of applicable fares.
